I have painful hands and back pain and was told that my parated salivary glands are swollen. I take Bactrim for prostatitis along with Benacar, HCT , trilipex and tamsulosin. Could my symptoms be side effects? I have been referred to an ENT for ultrasound of my salivary glands and will be screened for auto immune factors and lymphoma.

Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic!

There is chance for these being side effects of medicines. However, physical examination is mandatory to assess this. At this time, I believe that it is prudent to discuss review about all your medications with your treating doctor who had analyzed your problem better. Anyhow, there are various other reasons as well which cause similar symptomss as yours.

Let me know if you have have any clarifications.
