Sore throat: Two things come to my mind when patients complain of a sore throat without other symptoms, post nasal drip and early viral infections. Either way, you can try an allergy pill or the new nasal steroid over the counter: nasal cort. I prefer the nasal steroid. Either way if this does not work in the next few days, try some Motrin for the pain and gargle with salt water. See my other answers on st. ...Read more

Something infectious: Mono is from the EBV virus, and can cause swollen glands (lymph nodes) and big tonsils. Strep throat can do the same thing, but Strep throat needs antibiotics. Some other infections can cause big lymph nodes. More rarely, blood disorders and blood cancers cause swollen lymph nodes and fatigue (person often gets anemic). This all means that a trip to the doctor would be wise. ...Read more

Upper left parathyroidgland surgery a year ago. Swollen glands and tightness in kneck when I swallow, can it be scartissue issue? Back to Endo or ENT?

It is important that you brought up your history of neck surgery but this could all be a different issue as it has been a year since surgery. A scar tissue is a plausible answer. Common and transient I hope it is ...Read more
