I have had swollen glands with no pain & discomfort chest.

I have had swollen neck glands for about 2.5 weeks now. There is no pain associated with the swollen glands. However, I have had this discomfort in my throat and in my chest , which feels like there is maybe something stuck in my throat and chest, there is no pain, just the discomfort, this started about 3 weeks ago. I don t know what to do as Ive been to the doctor and feel like Ive been fobbed off as they said it was a thorat infection and indigestion , so I was put on a med to clear up the indigestion, which I have been on for 2 weeks now, having been told it would take about a week before it helped, which is has yet to do. Also, I was told the sweeling in my neck would go down in a week which is has yet to do as well. Can you help ?

Your doctor was right the swollen glands in the neck are called lymph nodes which get enlarged during onset of an infection. Once it appears it is difficult for it vanish, seldom it disappears. Your throat and chest discomfort can be due to reflux of acid contents from the stomach into the throat. Drink plenty of warm water, take the medicines prescribed by your doctor as well, do gargles with Povidone iodine mouth gargles 3-4 times/day after food.
