Just started 3 days ago. I have this puffed feeling on the left side of my trachea/throat, it's the lymph nodes in that area. The pain increases when I turned my head in any direction as though I am pulling on a pulled muscle and it hurts very much.
Coughing:When I cough it makes the lymph node area on my left neck hurt and the lower left teeth, like you'd find in an abscess tooth type pain. So this pain is each time I cough and I cough pretty frequent.
Does anyone here think this could be an infected/enlarged lymph node in the left side of my neck?
It's literally getting worse by the hour, loads of pain killers seem to not be helping at all. It almost feels like someone gave me a hay maker round-about kick/punch to the left side of my neck but no bruising occurred. It's bad bad pain and worse more and more.
I've smoking, chain smoked, for more than 25 years in case that helps.
