I know this may sound a little paranoid..but i'm am!

I have had a cough/throat thing for about 2 weeks. dr gave me some antibiotics but told me to wait a few days to see if it went away on its own. He also told me my ear canals were a little swollen..causing my to hurt in my neck on both sides. I feel a million times better than i did..as far as the congestion. I still have a bit of a cough..but it subsides as the days goes by..and my coughs have always lingered..

I have noticed for the past few days though that my underam is sore..right where my breast begins. I always tend to think negatively so i'm thinking a swollen lymph node. I also hurt on the right side too, not as much as on the left. its not excruiciating..just more annoying. I don't think its an ingrown hair..and it could possibly be from the new bras i have been wearing. I also have vaginosis..which i noticed a few days ago. I called the nurse and asked if i should just take the antibiotics the dr prescribed for me for the upper respiratory infection but she said no..that vaginosis is pretty specific and he would give me a different antibiotic.but that i need to be seen. I cant' go until prob tues or wednesday.

My problem is now....both mmy underarms are sore..my neck is killing me...from which i'm not sure if its still my eardrums...or if my lymph nodes in both my underarms and neck are swollen and sore. I took advil, but it didn't touch it. I'm scared that i'm going to die in my sleep before i can get to the doctor. My best friend passed away of myocarditis when we were 18. she wasn't sick but i was told apparently she had some infection that wasn't treated and thats what caused the myocarditis? So i'm paranoid that i have swollen lymph nodes and that i have a massive infection and am going to die..

maybe i am just paranoid..but i could use some reassurance?

I also wonder if everything i'm feeling has anything to do with my wisdom teeth..they are growing in sideways..or they are impacted..i think. one of them, the tooth has broken through the gum..and ican feel the ridges...maybe their infected? I don't know...
