I am a 34 year old female, and I have an extremely sore throat, mainly on the left side. The roof of my mouth and tonsils are swollen. They are red but do not have any patches. I do not have a fever. I have pain while talking and swallowing. I also have body aches. The throat pain started a couple of days back, but now it is getting worse and the swelling is really bad. I have a swelling in the neck around the lymph nodes.

Thank you doctor,
The soreness of throat started a week ago. It went and came back a couple of days back. Then my tonsils got swollen, and the symptoms got worse. The back of my mouth is now swollen. I have extreme pain when I talk and swallow. I also have post-nasal drip. This morning I had a productive cough. Currently, I am taking Z-pak and cough syrup with Codeine and Ibuprofen. I am just worried about the swelling. It seems so severe and now my neck is a little swollen also.
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
