I have a swollen lymph node on the right side of my neck, it's causing alot of pain. My right ear also hurts, and now the right side of my throat hurts, I looked and saw a big red spot on my soft palate. It really hurts to swallow, and now I'm getting jaw pain and it hurts to open my mouth. I saw a doctor lastnight, he told me I have tonsillitis. I I don't have tonsils, so I told him this and he said it's my adenoids. I didn't think you could see adenoids just by looking in the mouth. Is this diagnosis correct? I was prescribed amoxicillin and im 16 weeks pregnant.
No, it was ust my family doctor.
It started hurting five days ago, but it was just a spot undwr my jaw on the right side of my neck that hurt to the touch, then i woke up yesterdayand it was as i described above. i started the antibiotics lastnight, so far it feels like its getting worse.
also ive been getting headaches for the past few weeks, i dont know if thats relevent. I just thought it was because im pregnant.
The side of the soft palate that has the big red spot on it looks lower then the other side too.
i saw another doctor yesterday, he said it looks like a bacterial infection. He took a swab, and said to stay on the amoxicillin. Today its gotten even worse, my uvula has doubled in size and lools quite inflamed. im still able to breathe okay, but its more difficult then it should be. and i can not eat at all.
