Neck is swollen

Hey everyone. Does anyone know why half my neck is swollen. Havent done anything different or eaten anything I shouldnt have. It hurts to move and talk feels very rough to swallow and coughing is killing me xx

It could be your lymph nodes. I had a bad cold earlier this year and I woke up with a huge knot behind my 👂 like I hit my head on something. Went to the doctors and was told it's my lymph node working over time.

I was going to say the same thing as Crystal - it sounds like a lymph node.

Is your throat red? Any white patches on your tonsils? Any fever? Do have strep?

Honey, I would go to your doctor. You could be having an allergic reaction to something! Hope your okay as I just realized how late I'm seeing this. Praying for you!

Please see a doctor hun. It could be a variety of things from infection to allergic reaction and it really needs to be seen to urgently.
I hope that you're patched up soon

Well am under the oral surgen next visit is thursday but today it has gone down still sore not tonsilitis not a reaction to anything. I tend not to go to docs as much as possible think it may be hyperthiroidism

Mystic, I tend not to go to hospital as well but sometimes that can be to your detriment. Please don't just "guess" there are too many variables. Did the swelling just show up or have you been feeling sickly? I'm sorry I'm asking but I'm having trouble remembering things. Sending you gentle {{{Hugs}}}, positive vibes, good Karma and my hand to hold if you need one!!💕🙏🏻🌻😊
