Had blocked parotid glands. Swelling and fluid in head and neck. Help

I have had blocked parotid glands for 4 years now. I am on EVOXAC 3 x a day. I run around 100-101 degree fever everyday. I have started having fluid and pain in the back of my head and neck on the left side. You can feel the fluid and swelling . I have some auto-immune diseases. My immunologist is checking me for Sjogren s. They swollen part at the base of my skull hurts to touch and to turn my head. I am just anxious and wonder if I should let my doctor know about this before my next visit or just wait.

hi..Sjogren syndrome is an immunological disorder involving the exocrine glands..also gives rise to dry mouth and dry eye..most importantly, there is a possibility of lymphoma and also lymphadenitis for which you may be running fever..this may get infected also..evoxac is taking care of these dryness symptoms, but for the lymphoma, if present, you should consult the immunologist once again and also an oncologist..there are other immunosuppressant medication also which may well be tried in your case..have a good health..
