Re: I have swollen neck glands (It's been about 4 months)
I have had swollen lymph nodes under my jaw for about 3 months now. I've been to see three different doctors, and had a difficult time believing I was being correctly diagnosed. I also experienced a "tight throat feeling" I attributed to a thyroid problem and made me very uneasy, and it felt like there was a lump in my throat at times. I was always tired and very anxious. After the doctor visits I began a small dose of antidepressants and seeing a therapist regularly. I've been assured that the lymph nodes are my body trying to fight off a virus that I've not allowed it to do (have been stressed and very busy with not much time for rest). My throat is not 100% yet, and my lymph nodes are swollen (opposite sides of head below the ears along jaw), but I feel tremendously better haven had the problem correctly diagnosed by professionals- mind you, I didn't believe the first two- rather than googling symptoms on the internet and leading to greater anxiety and the onset of new symptoms worthy of googling (the tightness in my throat is globus, and anxiety reflex). Please see a doctor if you are experiencing problems, and don't forget the physical effects anxiety can wreak on your body. I hope this helps someone, I would have liked to see a post like this a few months ago.
