How can you tell if your neck glands are swollen? My throat is really sore and my neck feels swollen on the left side and feels like lump is there. Ear hurts. Neck hurts. Irritable. Tired. Nauseas.

In brief: Swollen glands

You can usually feel swollen glands.

You need to be examined and tested to answer these questions accurately.
This could be an infectious mononucleosis-like syndrome (which can be caused by several different bugs), or a variety of other things. Go and get evaluated and appropriately managed. Good luck.
