How can swollen lymph nodes in the jaw be treated?

I have several swollen lymph nodes bilaterally from jaw t clavicle that are severely painful. Difficulty swallowing, sore throats and headache. The pain in my neck is so severe I can t move it or sleep. Is this something that will go away on its own or should I see a doctor

I ve been sick for roughly 3 months. My symptoms have increased in severity to the point that I have obvious swollen lymph nodes under my tongue, my tongue is swollen to the point that eating food and even swallowing and often breathing is difficult. I m now having massive headaches, pains in my mouth, jaw, face, etc. My face, eyes, and even hands, feet and joints are all swollen. The headaches and pressure in my chest are growing increasingly difficult to handle. Ive been to the ER before and they treated me for essentially a sore throat possible brought on by acid. Told me to take Malox and sent me home. I truthfully feel like I m dying. My equilibrium is off to such an extent that I walk as though I m intoxicated even though I don t drink alcohol at all. So many things wrong. how do I get help? A dr friend told me that he is afraid that I have a lymph node blockage or possibly more. How do I get the ER dr s to listen to me?

I have 7 swollen lymph nodes in my neck/jaw area and 5 swollen lymph nodes in my groin area. Is this a matter that I should be extremely concerned about? The Lymph Nodes are somewhat hard in my neck and rather immovable based on my judgement. My concern is that I have this many swollen lymph nodes. I thought it was only normal to have a couple swollen during infections? Please help. Thank you.

Hi. I have had a sinus infection for several months. Today, I finished a course of Bactrim, which is the 4th antibiotic my ENT has prescribed. Yesterday, the lymph nodes in my neck/around my jaw started being very tender and a little swollen; today they swelled up even more. I double-checked Bactrim side effects, and it s listed as a rare one. Would it make sense for the side effect to show up on the last day and a half of a ten-day course? Will this resolve on its own?
