The sharp pain happened about 7 hrs ago and then nothing else happened. About an hour ago, the left gland only, started swelling. The swelling is visible and noticible when looking at me.
I do have tenderness and the area is soft. i don't have any other symptoms. When i swallow i can feel the pressure on my left side.
Just one last question....Since it's 11pm where I am and I cant see my Dr. until tomorrow, would it help to take Benedryl for the swelling or something else? I don't have ANY other symptoms and the swelling happened in a matter of 30 minutes, very strange. No fever, but swelling is significant.
