has anyone ever expierenced the mumps or know someone that had the mumps? What were the syptoms? Are the symptoms the same for everyone?
The medical symptoms on line have lists of syptoms but my son does not have all of them. But does have a lump that is hard, painful and swollen. Yet when I took him to the doctor she was positive that it was not the mumps. That its a swoolen lymphnode the only problem is with this diagnosis, the doctor has no idea how he could have gotten it. He had no symptoms of a cold which is common, she says, of how a swollen lymph node occures.
Anyways I am worried because he was placed on antibiotics to help get rid of it. He is on the 4th day and it has gotten larger in size, more painful, and his veins are starting to become very apparent.
Anyones insight would be greatly appreciated.
