Overcoming Glandular Fever And Swelling In The Neck Area?
Doctor, there was a barely palpable swelling in the nape of the right side of the neck before I knew it I was feeling excruciating pain and fever. I haven’t had any blood tests, x-rays or ct scans. What should I do doctor? I have gone to a doctor near my house, he said it is a type of gland, but after 3 days my head is often dizzy. Guidance please? Thank you in advance
Thanks for the question. Glandular fever is a contagious infection caused by the Epstein-Barr virus which is transmitted by direct contact or by coughing/sneezing. Patients with glandular fever will have symptoms of swollen lymph nodes in the neck or armpits, fever, dizziness, muscle aches, sore throat, and easily tired.
A lump in the neck can be caused by:
