hello .. i'm a 28 year old woman from Canada who's having some issues in the throat/neck area. last friday i started feeling that my glands on each side of my neck were a little swollen and hard. my colleague actually said she saw how distinct they were. i started having shivers, and going up and down in temperature. i fully understood that a fever was coming on and that meant that my body was trying to fight off something. moving forward through the weekend, weakness, more tightness in the throat area, lost of appetite, and high fever too because i was dizzy the moment i stood up. i ended up going to a clinique and she said to take pennicillan for 48hrs and then gave me a form to go for blood tests for mono. my fever was 39.5C (sorry american friends) ...but she said that it gets dangerous with a temp that high, and to keep monitoring it ... i had a bad reaction to the pills so i stopped them. then came the most recent issue...the tightness in my neck is now not only when swallowing, but going up my jaw to my ears everything is tight and just uncomfy. not pain, but uncomfy. . a small piece of bread to swallow feels like a baseball ... mucuc buildup happens because i delay trying to swallow ...and my glands are still hard and swollen ...5 days later ..my neck is even still ....this is big for me, because i'm never sick. other than the common cold. i havent been to a doctor in 2 yrs, and that was for a fractured finger! ... and in the past 5 days ive seen toooooo many docs that keep on saying "we dont know" "it's not that bad" "not much we can do" ... I'M ALL LOST !!! I'd appreciate any words of encouragement. thanks
