I had a cold about a 2 months ago that lasted just over a month. About 2 weeks into it the right side of my throat started to hurt (almost as if a piece of food was stuck on it). It was a lil red but no swelling or fever. Got tested for strep and it was negative. The sore throat lasted about 3 days and ever since then it will hurt for about 2-3 days and then feel fine for 1. Another 2 weeks passed with this happening and suddenly the pain switched from the right side to the left but it still hurts for 2-3 days and then is fine for 1. There has never been any swelling and I've never had a fever with it. It doesnt always hurt when I swallow but it does seem to hurt whenever I move my tongue around (if that makes any sense) and the pain seems to be in the gland. The cold has been gone for about 2 weeks now. This is really starting to get frustrating! Help!
