Painful to swallow, gland on left side of throat swollen and painful. Congested strep negative 10 + days of pain. Any thoughts on remedies?

Tonsillitis?

Streptococcal_infection
if the gland is inside it could be tonsillitis. If it is outside we call it adenopathy. They are lymph glands which the body uses in response to inflammation or infection or foreign body irritation. It still could be infection in nature, and strep is no the only cause of infection. Go see your doctor and be evaluated, especially to make sure no abscess and be treated appropriately.

Extreme pain and choking sensation on left side of throat. What should I do? Swallowing is painful and next to impossible. Feels like a classic sore throat but x100 and only on the left side of throat. It feels swollen and like someone is choking me with

Hello.

Hello. I can't diagnose your condition. But your description makes me wonder about a possible peritonsilar abcess. I know you are concerned by the cost of an Emergency Room. However, if this is a peritonsilar abcess it could be life threatening.

2 days ago I started having a sharp pain in my left ear. Also my throat feels swollen. Very painful in left side of throat and left ear when swallowing. Is there any OTC medications that could help?

Eustachian tube dys.

Neck-throat
You could have an ear infection or Eustachian tube dysfunction. Try salt warm water gargles every 2-3 hrs. You could take some over the counter pain killer also for some relief. If you don't see any improvement, please see your doctor for detailed evaluation.

First, only the right side of my throat hurt, pretty painful when swallowing as well. Now it's the right side and not the left. No other symptoms.

Swollen lymphode left side of neck under chin, very painful to swallow/talk. No fever, cough or sore throat just swollen gland Do I need antibiotics?

No

First you need a diagnosis. Lymph nodes enlarge when they are working to contain an infection or a tumor, but this is not always responsive to antibiotics, particularly if due to a virus. See a doctor and have this examined. You could probably wait to see if this went down and became less tender with time before going to an ER.

After having both lower wisdom teeth removed, the right side of my neck, throat, and jaw are so painful I can hardly open my mouth or swallow.

See below

Dental
It is common to have post op pain that can include sore muscles and inflammation that takes some time for it to go away. That area is very close to many muscles that perform eating and swolling tasks. The area should heal but will likely take awhile. If you are concerned call your provider and ask for clarification...there is nothing wrong with that.

I'm 25 and I have a throat 'lump' on the right side where my tonsil used to be. Not painful, but I can feel it when I swallow. What could it be?

ENT Consult

Head-ear
I suggest that you see an Ear Nose and Throat specialist for a thorough evaluation. Without being an expert in the field and not being able to clinically examine you in person, no one can give you an accurate answer.
