Throat is huge
I have like no jawline anymore cause my neck is so swollen and my throat hurts so bad when I swallow. Can anyone with these symptoms tell me how long it lasts?

Have you been checked for mumps?

If your diagnosos is Mono....are you on meds?

Oh....I would assume once the antibiotic deals with the infection, the lymph nodes will recede.

How long have you been sick? I know it can take months.

I do, however, suggest you take probiotics while on the antibiotics to keep your bowel flora balanced. A good brand, that I use is Genuine Health Advanced Gut Health...take at bedtime an hour or so after any meds.

Re: Throat is huge
Are you on any antiviral? That should help lessen the swelling and pain from the swelling.

When do you see your doctor next?
Did he discuss the fact that its contagious...even after symptoms are gone?

Re: Throat is huge
Has your swelling went down any within your lymph nodes after taking the AB's?
