Sialadenitis: The history is indeed suspicious for parotid infection (parotitis) and/or stone in the parotid duct, but it is not clear exactly what is going on. Other possibilities include neck abscess or lymphadenitis. All of these are pretty high acuity problems that warrant prescription medication treatment. I would consider ENT evaluation, or see your primary. If it's bad, er evaluation is appropriate. ...Read more

How come my ankles and feet swell up after eating junk food?

How come my ankles and feet swell up after eating junk food?

Water retention: I'll assume by junk food you're referring at least to salty snack foods, like chips, or fast food like burgers and French fries and pizza. Where salt goes, water follows, so with salty foods we tend to retain water in our bodies. Gravity then draws the water to the dependent parts of our bodies, which would usually be the legs and feet. So they swell. ...Read more
