Question swelling on left side of face

I have swollen glands on the left side of my neck, but my gums and my cheek are a little swollen too. My teeth and my jaw hurt. This started the day after I was diagnosed. Does anyone else have or have had this? Thanks

Hi linzee311. I also responded to your other post.

Both Lyme disease and the co-infection Bartonella can cause swollen glands. Please get to a Lyme doctor ASAP, so you can get the treatment you need.

Hi linzee311.

I agree with Ticker. Please see if you can get an appointment with a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor (LLMD) soon.

I have Lyme and Bartonella.

I don't have major swelling but I did have facial numbness.

Peace and health to you,
