See MD: If you are still having pain, I suggest an ER visit now. You may need to have an MRI or CT to see what is causing these issues. I do not want to speculate on cause, I think best is to be seen to establish diagnosis and treatment if needed. Good luck. ...Read more

Need a flu test: Although symptoms did not include fever or body aches or fatigue. Common colds or viral pharyngitis can present the same way. Use over the counter medicines to alleviate the throat and headache, such as Cepacol and ibuprofen respectively. If things don't improve after 3 days, u would need to see a healthcare provider then. ...Read more

Internet?: Hi. Girl, I'm sold! Something may be wrong beyond a "cold"! Will you PLEASE go see a doctor in person for a good evaluation and diagnostic tests? We in internetville cannot do the diagnostics. I hope it's nothing serious, but I've seen conditions present like that, that ARE serious. An in-person physician is what you need with real in-person blood tests, and who knows what else for diagnostics. ...Read more

Rule out tumor: Tender knots on head could be inflamed cysts or skin malignancies. If there is associated lymph nodes these could be drainage from infected lesions or spread from malignant skin tumors which are enlarging. See surgeon to consider bx of head lesions. That will tell you what the cervical nodes are and what kind of treatment necessary to resolve issue. ...Read more

On rare occasions TB from unpasteurized milk can cause the problem. At other times infectious mononucleosis can result in the problem. If nodes do not regress and symptoms persist a biopsy should be performed. ...Read more
