Please Help me if you can!! As far as I have researched I cannot find anything that fits with the symptons I have.

My illness started off with swollen glands, tired, and achy.... I thought I was getting strep throat...

And then all of the sudden my gums puffed up and started receding around my top teeth!!!!!!!! It seriously looks like a patient who had gingevitus (i can't spell) for 10 years... Then I have this white, raised blister with a deep circle in the middle that looks like it was carved out with a knife.... coming down right in the middle of the roof of my mouth... it looks awful and is painful to the touch...

I think on top of it my wisdom teeth came in JUST today or something because it is sending shooting pains up my top left gum and when i try to move my cheek over to look it is too painful.... i have white dots over my left tonsil and swallowing is difficult although its not the "sore throat" which I would have expected for strep....

The closest thing I could come up with was oral herpes... but I have nothing on my lips, and I have never had any symptoms of herpes in my life...

If you can recognize anything similar between these symptoms
(i forgot to add, I am achy, and have the chills (fever)) Please let me know I am waiting to hear back from my doctor who rushed me out of the office after a 30 second check-up...

Thank you so much,

  • Did you get it after sex? It could be any of the STDs. I'd get a scraping of it and blood work. If not that, who knows???

  • What I don't understand is that you have all of these symptoms and have not found another doctor who will actually will give you medical attention.Why haven't you gone to urgent care? Why not call your insurance company and find another doctor?I'm sorry to be so blunt, but I think you are incredibly silly to be sitting at home with these symptoms and posting on a forum. Some people here are knowledgeable, but they certainly cannot diagnose you or prescribe medicine-- which it really sounds like you need.GO TO A DOCTOR! Then come back and update everyone.Hope you feel better!

  • You have an infection. Viral or Bacterial. Need antibiotics. (the right ones specific for your case). Then a good check of those tonsils to see if they are the culprit. Go see your DR.
