I am 24, female. I have been dealing with 2 lumps on the left side of my throat. I went to the ER and told me is was a cold sore around January/February...months passed and the lumps stopped aching. I let it go but still told my doctor. She sent me to my dentist and she had no idea. due to my TMJ problem they thought it might be my cringing. They sent me to an Oral Surgeon he said it looks like a bite trauma. I went to 2 of them this year and nothing.
I noticed my mouth gets numb, my throat (left side) won't stop aching since last month, so I decided to make an appointment with my ENT.. Sept 18th ugh! I am very anxious. I have dealt so much with my health and cancer scares left and right.
My mouth would burn, my lumps ache, my throat is insanely painful and NO ONE knows why. my ears have been so painful, mainly the left (I have chronic ear pain due to my TMJ) but it is so bad as the time progesses. my doctor gave me antibiotics. if that doesnt work she thinks i have a viral infection.again.
I get sores here and there. I had lymph nodes before but no one knew the reason. i still have to behind the neck that never left so the oncologist thought nothing of them "not impresses" as she said. since docs thought I had lymphoma.
I have GERD/Acid reflux also. I eat veggies, dieting, working out. I have done what every doctor, specialist has told me and I don't feel better now this.
I will post pictures of my tongue if anyone wants to see
It is sooo painfullllllllllll!!!! its stressing me out. It's been over a week. on occasions I would get it, but not for so many days. Not sure if my TMJ or migraines are causing this. Hurts to the touch (inner and outer tragus) and a bit below inside. (if that makes sense)... I thought a pimple would be coming out by now, So far nothing. when I push the tragus it is painful, can't put my earphones on. Did a bit of research and ran into "neuralgia"
help? my ENT appointment won't be anytime soon...View Thread
If so, what I can do about them? What can I tell these specialist to try (suggest) and help? I'm really tired. I don't know if it's due to Acid Reflux/Gerd due to small lumps at the end of my tongue which aren't painful as the ones on my side. They get numb, painful when I eat certain foods. I was even given a splint but no help.View Thread
I did some research on it. I don't have a fever. The lumps in the front side are steady and not painful to the touch. Does it last for a very long time? herpes simplex? the left side of my throat is sure killing me! aah! I am relaxing, doing yoga...trying to keep my mind off the pains in my mouth. I may just let the ENT do what he wants to do. Maybe...just maybe I will mention oral cancer and as you said he will roll his eye, probably laugh.
I will trust him. I will let you know what happens. Antibiotics aren't working. My doctor told me to call her tomorrow for valtrex? I will try and see until Sept. 18 (the ENT appointment) Thanks for keeping an eye on me.
Take care and have a great week Rod Moser. once more, thank you.View Thread
Thank You for your reply and words. I have never smoked in my life. I hope this time my new ENT listens to me. Like you, I hope they take the time to get at least an answer. No one has really let me speak when they are asking whats wrong with me (doctor wise). To be completely honest I have never been sexually active so my doctor ruled out herpes instantly. She told me to see my GI once more as well. I guess I shall calm down, I have been strong about my health for 2 years and still no diagnosis. I guess thats a good thing? I am still alive.
I will keep taking these antibiotics and hope for the best. Thanks again Dr. Moser.View Thread
