the gland is just a bit sore when i push on it... doesn't feel swollen though. the ear pain feels really deep and is just very sore. sometimes the discomfort goes down the side of my neck. the sinus infection just went away a few days ago, but i'm still on antibiotics.
Well just because you feel it went away, doesn't mean it's not still lingering there, you're still in a recovery process. I mean the fact that it is no longer bothering you, that has went away but the fact you're still on antibiotics, depending on how many you have left, still kind of shows you the timeline of how these infections work. I would continue to keep taking your antibiotics, even after you feel the ease of symptoms, usually you'll be prescribed a prolonged dosage that is taken, even after the infection has went away, might be with your last couple/few pills are for in your prescription.
Glad to hear that it's clearing up though.
The discomfort down the side of your neck is most likely the pain radiating from the spot at which is sore. nerves are nerves, they go everywhere. your body is in recovery and it's firing off signals left and right.
