Swollen tonsils for two months, no other symptoms?
Hi... I've had swollen tonsils since around.. March 16th. I went to a walk in clinic and they swabbed me for strep. I didn't have it. I then went to my family doctor on march 27th, and he said it was a viral infection and i had to let it take its course. He gave me some mouth wash that was supposed to take down the swelling but it didn't work. It's now may 19th, and my tonsils are STILL swollen. I'm very scared, and I don't know what could be causing it. I don't have trouble breathing, I don't have any flu symptoms. The only thing I do have is phlegm, but I'm not overly worried about that. Could someone help? I'm only 17 and I really need some answers. I don't like knowing the fact that theres something not quite right.
i have one swollen tonsil, my throat is slightly red, the other tonsil is, inflammed, i've had 2 shots of rocephin and have been taking amoxicillin, and now azithromycin,.....i'm concerned because 2 shots should have killed any bacteria i would imagine,.....the antibiotics seem to do nothing,,..... i'm lost.
Girl let me know something to, because my tonsils too are swollen and they don't hurt or anything. I went to the emergency room he didn't swab for strep or anything he just looked at them and said it was...i took the meds and still nothing...i havn't been in any pain. It was hard for me to swalloe in the beginning but not anymore...im worried to so please let me know
My daughter is three years old and she has had swollen tonsils for about two months now. The Dr. doesn't know why. She says that she needs her tonsils out. But all she has tried is steroids and allergy meds. Steroids brought the swelling down a little but as soon as she was done with them they went back. It worries me because she is having problems breathing at night sometimes. Some nights are worse then others. I dont know why she hasn't tried antibiotics. But they don't seem to bother my daughter very much. I have noticed that she chokes more than she ever did. I have an app. with a specialist in a week but if anyone else has any answers please let me know. I will let you know what this Dr. says. Thx
Did your swollen tonsils ever go away? If so, what did you have and how did it go away?
The reason I ask, I'm afflicted with the same thing... Don't know why... and the doctors basically say don't worry about it... it'll go away on its own, it's just a bacteria or something. But I am worried about swollen tonsils, cause, well, this isn't right. And it hasn't gone away yet. And it makes me have trouble breathing at night, it's so swollen.
You say you have some phlegm. I bet you have a sinus infection and the drainage is causing your tonsils to flare a bit. Not unusual especially for me. I always have drainage from my right ear so my right tonsil and lymph nodes are always on high alert.
HI CAN YOU TELL US WHAT HAPPENED WITH YOUR DAUGHTER PLEASE I HAVE A 4 YEAR OLD THAT HAS GOT ONE SWOLLEN TONSIL AND HAS HAD ALOT OF FLU LIKE VIRUSES IN THE LAST 12 MONTHS I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO HERE ABOUT OTHER PEOPLES TREATMENT PLEASE EVERYONE COULD YOU MAKE A FOLLOW UP EMAIL TO LET FUTURE PEOPLE KNOW HOW THINGs WENT OR ARE GOING......
I also have a swollen right tonsil. I went to the ENT and she said I should remove my tonsil. Actually all doctors have told me the same thing.
I have been reluctanct to take them out because I m afraid.
My appointment is on the 14 of March 2011 and today is the 1st of March 2011. I have no pain on the right tonsil, and no real problems breathing except before I go to bed. The left nostril hole of my nose seems to clog when I want to go to bed and when I sleep to the right it opens up.
The doctor said my septum is not straight and that I need a Septum Operation. I m 40 years old and I have had the large right tonsil for 8 years now. Until about a year it started to really bother me because of the smell, the stones coming out of the smaller one and the white liquid comming out of the right one. I hope the operation goes well. I m Insured and the Medicine I try through the years was Amoxicilin, 1000mg, cedrofraxil or something like that. I also have Chronic bronchitis since I m a 8 year old child and all of this side effects have made me decide to Operate my tonsils out. I have tried Salt water and Accupunture and it did not help lower the right tonsil. I also heard a guy did not take them out and after 8 years he died of a heart attack. I believe he did not go to the doctor because it is possible to dye if the Bacteria goes to the Heart.
I have also been told that I had a virus at one time called epstein Virus.
just to get angry with my house doctor because he did not give me anything when the Virus was Current. I dont know if their is any medicine for the epstein Virus and I believe that their is no medicine for it.
Alot of people get this Virus through Kissin a Person.
I have had what I think are swollen tonsils on the right side since dec off and on. In Feb they became sore and I came down with a horrible whooping cough and flu mixture. After 4 weeks that finally went away. I went to the dr 3 times and they did chest x-rays, blood work, etc...they all said it was a virus. After I finally thought I had gotten rid of all of it, the swollen side is back. You can see them right? like little bean shapes in the folds of my throat and there aren't any on the other side...I can feel them when swallowing. No white patches, sometimes I have ear pain. Does anyone know what this could be? Can a virus last that long? I have no insurance and another visit to the dr seems pointless...
