Need exam!: It's hard to know without examining you. The glands you feel are lymph nodes. If they are enlarged and sore, that can mean you have an infection. The glands in your neck and throat drain your sinuses, head, throat & mouth. The glands in your armpits drain your arms/hands or chest/breasts. Enlarged glands are also a sign of cancer, particularly lymphoma, so you really need to see a doctor! ...Read more

Generally our glands will swell in response to infection or allergy, so I am guessing when this happens it is because you are eating something you are allergic to; your body may also be reacting to gmo foods. But food allergies are common ; this type of reaction is not. Honor the wisdom of your body and avoid eating any foods that cause this reaction. See comment:. ...Read more

Plat yams muscle pul: You probably pulled your platysma muscle. There is normal clicking of the larynx over the spine when you swallow. You can try some Motrin 600 mg three times a day for any inflammation in this area. I have not really seen clicking so bad in my practice that I had to treat it. The Motrin will help the muscle strain. If it is not better in a few weeks, see an ENT doctor and they will check it. ...Read more
