Hello, Just yesterday I woke up with a painful swollen gland on my neck and a sore, tender spot on the same side right where my top wisdom tooth would be. I had all my wisdom teeth remove over 10 years ago. I thought it was maybe an abscess tooth, went to the dentist today and she said it wasnt. She is the one that told me the actual location of the soreness. She described it as a Canker sore, yet I have never had one there and it doesnt feel like one. If I apply just a little pressure on it, I can feel the pressure on the side of my head. I also get headaches and pressure on that side of my head....really scarring me. any ideas what it could be? The dentist prescribed me an antibiotic.
