Let your doctor know: You didn't describe any other symptoms to know if you have fever, chills, difficulty swallowing, pharyngitis, inability to talk, lethargy to know how much it's affecting your activities of daily living. Your doctor will know best if this is a common recurrence. It all depends on other variables. It should definitely be looked at by your doctor.
