I started with a sore feeling on my jaw where it meets the ear 24 hours ago. The pain felt muscular at first but on waking this morning the pain is still there and the glands/nodes in my neck have swollen to about the size of a golf ball. (The pain was and is equal on both sides of the jaw/neck).

I can't get in to see my GP until next Tuesday, is this something I should take to an emergency practioner?
