I have been feeling rather not well for the past few days. It all started with my armpit, I had a painful swollen gland that just appeared one day under my right arm. This may not be related at all, but when I sat down to think back to the last time I remember having cut myself while in the shower (I live in a dorm, so chances are there was rust) under that arm.
The following day I had a swollen gland on the left side of my neck just under my jaw, accompanied by stiffness of the jaw and an uncomfortableness while trying to chew or talk.
I now have stiffness in the neck, stiffness and pain in my shoulder, and a pretty bad headache. -- I get headaches often so I'm not positive that this is even related. -- The stiffness in my jaw is still present. I am also feeling rather lethargic and not well in general.
I had the tetanus vaccinations as a small child, but haven't had any boosters since the age of 5, 15 years ago.
What it comes down to is, that it is 6 PM on a Friday, so there's no way I'm going to be able to get into a normal doctor for at least 3 days. Should be worried enough to go to the ER or an Emergency Clinic, or should I just wait it out?
Thanks for your help.
