Basically I have 2 swollen lymph nodes (one on my neck just below the corner of my right jawline and one underneath the middle of my right jawline) and a lump at the bottom of that stringy bit underneath my tongue. It feels as though there are two small lumps (stones?) on either side of the stringy bit when I am feeling around with my tongue.

I went to the doctor today and she told me that my lymph nodes were not swollen that much and I should not worry as they can be inflamed by infections - so she didnt put me on any antibiotics and told me not to worry so I dont know what to think now!

  • If your only symptoms are those bumps, then I'd wait and see what happens (or you probably have since it has been over a month). I also have two bumps on either side of the frenulum of the tongue, and they have always been there. If you are having other symptoms, don't press the doctor or a different one to work with you on figuring out what is wrong. I have not been feeling well (i.e. extreme fatigue, very irritated throat, red spots on inside of cheeks, weird bumps under the tongue and back of throat, etc) and I was given 10 days of amoxicillin. So far it has only helped with an ear infection, everything else is the same or worse. So, when I am done with the prescription I will be back at the doctor asking them to do tests and actually give me a diagnosis rather than give me antibiotics to try and treat symptoms of who-knows-what. Good luck - and no one knows your body better than you.
