    I woke up this morning and felt a little sore under my tounge (right side) [​IMG] , I have no clue as to why.
    Now my throat is getting sore and when I lean my neck back a little I have a big lump/knot there under my chin/neck area on the right side. It feels tender and my throat is a getting a tight feeling and my right ear is beginning to hurt. Do any of you know why or what the far is wrong with me? I am assuming it must be a slight infection but I have no idea.

    could be an infection of either the tonsil or the parotid glands (under the jawbone, toward the back of the jawbone and in front of the ear) or an ear infection. try gargling with warm salt water; it may help. Do you have a fever?

    You have the beginnings of an upper respiratory infection. Take your vitamin C and zinc to shorten the duration of it. Drink lots of fluids to flush it out. Sleep as much as you can to heal yourself. Why can't colds ever come at a convenient time?

    Get well soon.

    You are getting an ear infection - call the doctor.

    Quote:Gossshhhh Debi do I have to, I hate going to the doctors it just takes too much time, people coughing, rubbing their noses alot, picking in their ears, kids picking their noses [​IMG] and eating the boogs. [​IMG] It bothers me to take the time to pee most of the time [​IMG]. I will hold it till I have to run to make it and I'm busy on BYC. [​IMG]
