Mumps
A couple of my m8s av ad the mumps recently, half my jaw has swollen up, I get a dry mouth, I had really bad period pains, headaches and I think its really obviouse. My m8 went to the drs with a stiff neck wen she had it, and they told her it was just a stiff neck. She went back the next day with her neck even more swollen, they told her again, its a stiff neck. She went back again and finally they realised yes its the mumps. Now I went to the same doctors and this dr said to me no I think its jus an infection. I thought well thats a funny coinsidence. But iv had things like this all my life, people dont belive me when im unwell, all the way through school they just all thought I was making everything up. I feel pain how can I make it up? Id say lookin like a bullfrog is a good enough indication of having the mumps! Ha ha. Could I of been wrongly diagnosed? Its my 18th birthday in 4 days and im going on holiday in 11 days time!
