I recently have had a bad sore throat. The severity of it has decreased but it still persists when I don't take sudafed. I encoutered the sore throat last monday. About 3 days ago a felt a lympnode swell on the side of my neck, and about 2 days ago another on top of that swelled. I also have an ache/pain at the bottom of my right shoulder blade. I went to the doctor, he prescribed me penicillin which I can't recieve until my insurance clears a problem. I'm not worried because the lymphnode is moveable and tender. Anyone have any expierence with this and have any insight?
