I had what I believe to be a flu a week ago. During the last stages, I had a sore tongue on the left side and a swollen bump. There were some very small ridges on the right side of my tongue, but they weren't so bad. The flu/cold left and the sore tongue went away.
However, last night the sore tongue came back, as did my other symptoms. This is odd, since I've felt great for a week. The return of the sore bump on my tongue corresponded exactly to my symptoms returning. Yesterday was a bit of a stressful day at work, but it still seems odd.
I'm not congested/coughing, I just feel very weak. I took my temperature, and it was low (around 95). Any ideas? I called my GP this morning, and have not heard back all day. I know he's busy, but wish he'd return my call (sounds like I need a new GP!).
A lymph node (I think) on the side of the back of my neck near the base of my head has become swollen and tender in the last hour. I don't know if that helps at all. My GP did call back, I may be able to see him tomorrow, but will most likely be next week.
