Throat infection: The group of symptoms listed can form a cascade. Tonsils can be swollen from infection, possibly viral or bacterial. Referred pain from the throat to the ears is common, so the ears hurt.

See doctor now: You should see a doctor right away. This may be just a viral infection but the severe neck pain, especially if it hurts to bend your neck or bend at the waist, may be a sign of meningitis.

Have swollen tonsils form past 6 months been to docs have got all blood work and culture done everything is negative and I have a lymph node in neck??
What are you asking?: I would not be further concerned, unless the tonsils are causing you to have sleep apnea. I'm going to assume the lymph node is not massively enlarged. Most of your friends have at least one similar node. Your tonsils and your big lymph node are your defense troops protecting you from bacterial invaders. Be thankful for good health and get on with your life. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Should get better: Some born with poor IgA production tend toward more ear/sinus/diarrhea infections in infancy. Many of these can be quite worrisome and admission for dehydration, etc would be expected. They are not as prone to severe infections as those with combined deficiencies, and most are less vulnerable as they get older, when size reduces risk of dehydration and general immunity builds up. ...Read more

My 11yo daughter had strep 2 wks ago and took amoxicillin. Has cont'd to feel nauseas with swollen tonsils. Feels "gaggy". Could it still be strep?
It depends on why your tonsils are large.
If your tonsils are enlarged suddenly due to a bacterial infection (tonsillitis) then you may need antibiotics. If your tonsils are always large even when you are not sick, you could have them removed if you have sleep apnea. If only one tonsil is large, you should be seen by an ENT surgeon. ...Read more

In general, however, each one, laryngitis and tonsillitis are separate problems and laryngitis frequently occurs in the absence of tonsillitis and visa- versa. ...Read more
Swollen tonsils: From your question, I surmise that you have Doxycycline for another problem previous to this. Tonsils can swell for a lot of things besides infection. Taking medicines you have around the house for a condition that has not been properly diagnosed is a practice that I really have to discourage. I suggest getting your tonsils checked out so that you can get proper treatment. ...Read more
