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.
