Hi I woke up two days ago with a really swollen left neck gland and my throat was killing me (it was hurting a little the couple days before but no swollen glands) I went to the doctor and he even said wow your glands are really swollen. The left one is more swollen than the right one. It hurts and my left ear kinda hurts but not my right. I dont have a runny or stuffy nose and there is nothing else that is bothering me? Any idea what it could be. I didnt hear from my doctor yet about if it could be mono. I doubt it is cause I dont have a fever or headaches stuff like that. I'm misreable. I'm stuck in the house and I need to get better asap. Anyone suffered from this too? How long will it take for me to get better? I dont think I can wait another day. My throat just seems to get worse everyday. Please some help me out. Nothing seems to make me feel better. Warm salt water works for about 5 seconds. Whats the point? I'm just so misreable right now. I gotta get better soon :(

I have had these same symptoms for the past month I went to 3 different doctors in one week and had a blood test for glandular fever and it came back negative! I am so frustrated too because I still have to work full time and yet I feel so tired. There is nothing the doctors can do for me I ave already been on anti biotics and it didnt do anything. How did you end up treating it?

You're tiredness and swollen gland sounds like a thyroid problem, very common among women and some among men. Maybe get your thyroid checked out?

The outside under the neck the glands are swollen (right side only) pain when I swallow though (sharp) otherwise it's just dull allthe time . Saw my primary care and he kind of blew it off just said yeah they are swollen. I took an antibiotic briefly till I ran out it did seem to give me a slight reprieve.

Painful Swollen Gland on Left Neck
I am having these same symptoms right now for two days. Didn't know whether to consult a doctor at this point or not. It feels like a combination sore throat and sprained neck. The gland is visibly enlarged on the left side of my neck under my jaw. It does hurt to press on it. Cold water seems to relieve the pain briefly but it even hurts to turn my head. I laid with heat on it one night. Seem to offer limited relief.

I had glandular fever yet my test came back negative. After about a year of constantly getting sick had more blood tests and found the virus or whatever was in my body. Takes quite a few blood tests to diagnose but if u get run down and sick easy chances are u have it. Only thing you can do is rest up and wait it out. Sucks

possible way to alleviate
try cold compresses on your throat, popsicles, slushie's and cold plus advil every 6 hours. I was like this for a day and it helped. Think it's been nipped in the bud for now. All I can suggest, is find a doctor who will actually listen to you or try a herbalist or naturopath and see if they can help.

Look for a credible massage therapist with additional training in trigger point therapy...my therapist found trigger points all over my head and neck; three treatments have made a big difference....

sore throat
My left ear like towards my throat hurts and swollen glands. Really hurts to swallow. I had the same thing last month about the same time. Hope this isnt a monthly occurance. I buy the numbing throat spray and it helps alittle. Cant see a doc b/c I have no health insurance and its rare to find anyone that accepts cash. I have no other symptoms.

Sore Throat on Right side of neck under jaw.
Me too! Started w/a swollen gland on right side of neck under jaw for a week. Just bothersome, but then turned into severe sore throat and dry cough. Thought I had strep throat, but culture came back negative. Dr. said I had allergies and sinus' were draining onto the back of my throat making it sore; gave me generic Claritin prescription. (I've never had anything like this before, even with allergies.) A lot of pain, another week cough is all but gone and it's not burning to swallow, except right side is now swollen and painful to swallow. I have had dizziness, headaches, and "fuzzy" head, and not a lot of energy. What is this? Perhaps stress related?

Turn head to the left, severe throat pain on right
Same here! I woke up this morning having the exact same symptoms, turn head to the left and severe sore throat on the right side under jaw. I have no other symptoms but this is enough and it's the holiday! I have been under an extreme amount of stress and a few days ago had headache a couple of days prior to that could feel tension in my shoulders and back area. So I'm not sure if this would relate to the severe throat pain. I will be scheduling an appointment to see my dr. If anyone has any answers at this time...help! Thank You!

Going through the same thing at the current moment. Tried amoxicillin for 3/4 days twice a day and stopped bcuz I thought I was better but I was wrongggg. Glands are swollen again ears are sensitiive as if an ear infection is occuring, slight fever that comes and goes, sore throat from hell! Sooo I seeked some advise from a healthcare professional and now I am on Clindamycin. It helps treat any and most bacteria in the body and a persons mouth has many bacteria. The culprits behind this: either someone that had/ has it, shared drinks or saliva,etc. and germs germs germs. I hope this all helps and goodluck evryone....

Swollen Glands, sore throat, no fever
I know this sounds stupid, but jumping up and down (on the ground or trampoline) helps stimulate and release toxins from your lymph glands. Also driniking a lot of water, messaging the area (I use Tei Fu Oil from Natures Sunshine) will break it up. Lymph glands are like a big filter in your body...the only way to get the swelling to go down (if chronic) is to break it up and flush it out. Getting on a good cleaning program, eating lots of fruits and vegies (get off all processed foods) for 3 months and probiotics will help the most. I've learned all this from plain ole experience and seeking my nutritionist over the years. I delt with swollen glands for years! Now I am 100% over it.

Same thing as yall
OMG! I completely have same symptoms on left side under jaw and pushed into my left ear. Started with a really sore throat but that passed and was left with this. I am soooo tired. Happened a few weeks, doctor said NBD and that is was a lingering virus that would pass. Two weeks later same symptoms. No insurance and these post dont make it seem promising. Did anyone get a real answer ever?
