Since Friday, May 3rd, 2002, I have had very sore glands in my neck. It feels like only one is inflamed on the left side, but on the right side, I can feel two, and the pain is more on the right side.
My body only vaguely hurts, and I have a negligible fever. My neck is somewhat stiff from being horizontal with a pillow for the past few days. My nose is not running, I have sneezed twice in the past few days [and it hurt!], and I have no spots on my glands.
The most likely cause of these symptoms is a viral infection. This can cause everything you have described. However, if the symptoms persist, it is a good idea to get a throat culture to make sure this is not a strep infection.
