the sore throat i've had for about 6 days, the congestion and runny nose for about 5 or 6 days, the tongue feeling swollen for 3 days now, yesterday my left ear started hurting, not so much as painful more just bothersome, so i started taking Tylenol cold Multi-Symptom Severe, and also i had a wisdom tooth pulled a few years ago upper left side... the dentist couldnt get the rest of the tooth extracted, so i just left it. Now a fragment is portruding through the gum (for about a year now) and it feels like it has fever in it and it's sore, this pain happened last night. Today, my ear isn't bothering me and the gum around the tooth fragment doesnt hurt. Figured I'd add that though in case it could be part of the problem.
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX wanted to rule out other possibilities. It's just the tongue thing had me baffled and didnt know what to think as i havent had any problems of it feeling like it was burnt and swollen before. And the bumps on the very back of my tongue seemed to be larger than they were before and more of them. But i dont look at them often so i could just be wrong, plus information i was finding out just by searching on the internet was scareing me with the fact that my wife cheated on me made me really think this was something even worse.
