Hello Intan, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Seeing the complaints that you have experienced over the past 2 days, there are several conditions that might have caused your complaint, such as:
Inflammation of the lymph nodes Enlargement of the lymph nodes Inflammation of the salivary glands Tension in the neck muscles and several other conditions To ascertain what condition you are currently experiencing, it is highly recommended that you do further tests to the doctor. This examination in addition to determining what conditions are currently happening to you, also aims to determine whether the condition is dangerous or not (can cause death or not) and determine whether the condition is related or not with thyroid disease that you also suffer. The doctor may ask you to do some additional tests to determine exactly what causes your complaint such as blood tests and others. After that, the doctor will state what the diagnosis is for your condition and suggest which therapies should be given to you. It is also possible that you will be consulted further with a specialist in a particular field to get more optimal therapy about your current condition.
For the time being, you are still allowed to do your daily activities and consume any food until there is another suggestion from the doctor who checks you in. You should not pressure and avoid activities or other things that are felt to cause or aggravate your complaint. Also make sure you eat nutritious foods, drink enough water, get enough rest and do regular exercise to help increase your endurance.
I hope this helps.
