Hi, i'm not sure if i'm posting in the right forum here but I am having alot of trouble with swollen glands. It is usually just the glands in my neck and under my jaw which swell alot and make talking, eating, moving my neck uncomfortable. It is also usually only one side of my nck at a time. More often than not i have no other symptons except occassionally a sore throat or general sort of tiredness. But i just put this down to a busy lifestyle. I have always seemed to have fairly sensetive(?) glands, ever since i was younger, but they are swelling all the time now and it is getting very annoying. I have had glandular fever before, and am quite prone to throat infections, but never enough so to have my tonsils out or anything.

Is it possible i do just have overreactive glands, or could it be something more else?

I am a 20yr old, and generally fairly healthy, but i am currently undergoing tests about heart problems.

Thanks for any help!
