broke and went to the er
« on: March 18, 2014, 08:50:42 AM »
So my symptoms have been on and off headahes, sore glands under right side of jaw, the pain is also in my ear and runs down the side of my neck. Its been like that for 3 days
 I'm on bactrim from a sinus infection since last week.

the ER Dr said he found a bit of puss on my tonsil but no strep. He said no lumps or bumps on mynneck/glands. So that is all good news.

my concern is that there is a tumor in my neck or deep in my throat pressing on stuff and making it hurt. I have an Ent appt tomorrow but I have to go thru a whole work day from 10-8 until then with these worries!

any support or advice would be great!

Did they run any blood tests in the ER? (Not that i think there is ANYTHING wrong with you) if they did, then you have no reason to suspect anything other than the flu... which is exactly what this sounds like.

If the ER doctor looked into your throat he would have immediately been able to tell if there was any pressure on anything in there or if it looked out of the ordinary.

No, no bloodwork....im assuming he didn't think i needed it. just felt my nodes/glands.. my ears and throat. said a bit of puss on one of my tonsils but strep test was neg.

I see the ENT tomorrow.....I'm assuming that I'll get my best answers from them.

everytime i see persistent pain and low grade fever i think of cancer. i know, so ridiculous.

Yes, when i saw the neurologist last week, he said its probably a mix of sinuses and tension--- he said nothing pointed to a brain tumor or anything sinister. I wish he would have done a brain scan to ease my mind though.
