It first started with a bad cold, headache, sore throat, cough and high fever ... then a few days ago it felt like my wisdom teeth were coming in and my gums were sore ... the cold began to go away but my gums continued to swell and become red. Also, a few of my taste buds seem to be enlarged also and its very painful to eat.

I do not have health insurance so I am hoping this isnt something serious but if it continues I will have to take the hit and go to the dr.

any help/ideas of what to do or what this could be?

Thanks!
