For the last 7-8 days, I have a lot of pressure and pain right where my left throat gland is whenever I swallow. If I tilt my head all the way to the right...I have no pain when swallowing. Sometimes it feels like something is moving around when I swallow. Just sitting, I have slight pressure in the area. I've been trying to make a habit of moving my right ear towards my right shoulder when I swallow so I don't have any pain.
Any insight towards what this may be would be greatly appreciated.
Extra Note: 5 weeks post-op appendectomy...no complications.
Thanks for the info Dr. Lupo. As of today (about day 10), it seems completely gone. Yesterday I could barely tell it was there. Today I swallowed weird a couple of times and it felt like something was moving around.....but it doesn't feel like I have a golf ball wedged in my neck anymore.
Should I just wait and see if it recurs and then go see my physician? Could anything be found even though everything feels completely normal now?
