Three swollen cervical lymph nodes all on left side of neck some ear pain doctor HS seen one of them says wait 2 month fbc normal should I be worried?

Lymph nodes: The lymph nodes usually enlarge as response to an infection in the vicinity.It lasts maximum 2-3 weeks and as the infection goes away (with antibiotics usually) the lymph nodes disappear. Outside this scenario, i would be worried and demand further investigation (ct is appropriate, a blood smear and CBC with differential, as well as a bmp with enzymes markers analysis) up to an excision biopy. ...Read more

Mildly sharp ear pain comes and goes from possible wax impaction. Can't see doc til ties anything to suggest for pain controll until then?

Ear pain: Ear pain can be one of the most difficult and elusive things to diagnose, because everything in your head and neck region can send pain to your ears. That being said, most commonly it is something related to the ear. I would start with Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen, and if worsens seek treatment from an urgent care or emergency room as you see fit. If it is just wax, then you should be fine until Tuesday. ...Read more

Neither: Neither will help as much as a TMJ-orofacial pain expert. Any dentist can be a TMJ expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. Ask your MD, your dentist and your dental society for referrals. ...Read more
