Ultrasound: Can better show what the mass is. An enlarged lymph node looks very different from the carotid artery so this question can be put to rest with an ultrasound.

What does it mean when you have a really sore throat, stuffy & runny nose, and swollen glands under your jaw?

Many possibilities: You cold have a simple viral infection. You could have a sifnificant bacterial infection, you could have a rare fungal infection. Generally the lymph nodes in the neck will swell with viral and bacterial infections. You describe a classic viral infection. Strep throat is not usually associated with runny nose. If there is fever, difficulty swallowing or you believe you are too ill, see pcp.

Breathe...: First; try to expel the water; as long as you have no difficulty breathing you should be fine. You may want to drink a cup of warm/hot tea with some honey in it; or a lozenge to soothe your throat...But other than that you should be fine. If there is any doubt in your mind that you are not well then by all means call your doctor and get checked out, or visit your local emergency room.

Possibly...: Your symptoms may be indicative of bronchitis, either bacterial, viral or even allergic etiology. In order to be sure, you should see your doctor. If you have a bacterial infection, antibiotics may be needed. For viral or allergic etiologies, therapy depends on the precise signs and symptoms present !

A 29-year-old female asked:

Im being tested for overactive thyroid. The doctor put me on clonazepam and citalopram in the mean time for severe anxiety/panic attacks. Is severe weeakness a symptom of the thyroid or the meds?

Hard to say: Without knowing your thyroid test results, this is very hard to say. If the weakness onset was right after starting the medications, that may be the cause. If you have sever hyperthyroidism ( TSH is very low and your free thyroxine, t4, is very high), then your thyroid could be contributing. An evaluation by your doctor shoudl be able to tell the difference, or find another explanation.
