i broke and went to the er
« on: June 24, 2014, 06:58:09 AM »
Ok so after symptoms for 2weeks I went to the ER last night. (can't get an appt with my gp until beginning of July).

anyway, the Dr said , I have fluid in my ears and enlarged glands under my jaw. Then just says its viral. I asked about throat cancer and he said "well smoking definitely isn't on your side but cancer is very unlikely." I'm still freaking out. He said its not strep, I kind of wish it was because then I'd know what's going on and feel better after a couple of days.of antibiotics.

my symptoms--started as a pea size pain on one side of my throat going up to my ear. Then spread to both sides and turned into my whole throat hurting. 2 weeks!! I'm also achey and very tired. Yesterday my temp was 99.8 when I usually run in the 96 range.

someone help  :fragend005:

It's doctors' jobs to scare you out of quitting smoking - it's terrible for you.  But you don't have throat cancer, and you have your answer.  What you describe is a classic virus.  It'll burn itself out over time; unfortunately antibiotics don't help with viral infections.  On the plus side you now have an excuse to eat a ton of ice cream :)

My guess is lymph node related. They can be enlarged with viral infections and cause pain like you are describing. Hope you feel better soon!!!
