:(i have been feeling sick for about 1 wk or more and few days ago noticed the sides of my neck swelling up (lymph nodes or tonsils maybe??) and next day going all the way up to my ear. my face literally looked like i had put 20 lbs on over night. it hurt. i had a bad headache, throbbing pain in my head, runny nose, cough, tired, body aches. i went to hospital, and they gave me a strep test-came back negative. they took blood and tested for mono- came back negative. they told me i just had a cold or sore throat and sent me home. i have been there 3 times in the last month because of these symptoms, although the swelling of my face and neck just started. i am very frustrated and dont know whats wrong with me but i have headaches all day and the swelling is just now starting to go down after 5 days but i still feel like dog poo. i am just wondering if maybe anyone has any thoughts as to what it might be or i should get checked for.. these dr.'s didnt know what they were doing and couldn't tell me anything.:confused:

  • I'm no doctor but maybe it's your thyroid. You may have developed a goiter from hypothyroidism which could correct itself it some cases. Have you noticed if your hair has gotten coarser? But I'm sure the docs would have picked up on that one already through your labs.
