Re: Swollen Neck (throat closing)?
I am sorry to say I personally have never encounter with an infection causing such a response. However, 2 years ago I had a similar personal experience with an auto-immunological response where my immune system went hyperactive and I had to take a week long high level steriodal treatment to reset it. When my immune system went into over drive, it was like i was going into anaphlaxsis (sp) shock, but slowly. Swollen neck and glands, severely restricted airway, couldn't drink, eat, or swallow... breathing was labored, mucus production in over drive etc.. the more i stressed the worse it got. This took two days to cut off my airways, by which time the immunologists, said that there was no indicator of viral or bacterial infection, just my immune system attacking itself. A steriodal shot followed by oral steriods for seven days, suppressed the symptoms in a matter of hours. In 24 hours it was like nothing was wrong.
I am sending prayers your way and hope things improve for both you and your husband.
