I am 32 years old and two years ago, I noticed a small knot on the side of my neck but I felt fine...I forgot about it. Well about 2 months ago, I decided to get it checked out because it seemed to be bigger. I went to the doctor, they ran some bloodwork-told me to come back in a month if they were still there. I made an appointment but the day before, my lymph nodes under my jaw had swollen so much that I felt like my throat was closed off so I went in to see my doctor that day. Well, they told me that I was positive for EBV and that it would go away on it's on. He gave me some antibiotics for 2 weeks and a steroid for 1 week. Surprise! It didn't work. Now, it feels like the one at the bottom-side of my neck is swelling more, along with others around it and the ones under my jaw are still swollen but not as much as they were. I went back to the doctor last week because I was in severe pain because of all the swelling--and, even my face was swollen. Throbbing!! He said the same thing, gave me a Vitamin B-12 shot and sent me home. The pain subsided but is still there.
I am supposed to go back in another week to let them know that it still hasn't went away but I am sick of trying to get them to understand that it is not what they are thinking.
