Hi jill,the symptoms are suggestive of throat infection.Due to throat infection the area gets dry and leads to pain.The swelling in neck that you have is an enlarged lymphnode which is due to the infection itself.Please visit your doctor and get treated for this.You can take any analgesic for pain which suits you,avoid cold drinks,take light diet.bye and take care.

Hi- This morning I woke up with a sore throat and runny nose. I also had a swollen gland on the right side of my neck under my jaw. It s not sore, and feels hard to touch. Also during the day the swelling goes down occasionally (after a saline gargle etc.). Should I be worried about these symptoms? Or is this just a simple common cold?

I m a 34 year old female. Average height and weight. I had strep throat about 3 months ago. Took antibiotics and it seemed to go away. For the past 3 weeks though a lymph node in the front left side of my neck will swell and get very painful on and off. Also the base of my tongue on that side hurts when I swallow. I can t even turn my head in the direction of the painful node when I have an attack. It will go away for a few days, but it always comes back.
