Did You Have Momo?
I imagine you went to the doc several weeks ago? Did you have mono or streph throat? When I had mono, I have a really bad sore throat & then the sides of my neck were swollen & sore!

Hope you are better!

It sounds more like strep to me. I've been dealing with both on a regular basis for the last 15 years.
