DISCOMFORT ON JAWLINE AND UNDER JAW LINE

HI
4 weeks ago i had painfull glands come up under my jaw line and throat area , they have since gone down .
this left me with discomfort that i am aware of under my jawline and in my throat and neck area .
I have been to my GP twice, and on both occasions said i was fine , I have had full bloods done and thyroid check all ok.
But i still have this discomfort on either side under my jaw , i can still feel a lump either side too touch , under jawline. (If i feel for it) which the doctors say they cant. And also when i lie down on my left hand side only and feel my jaw on a certain point it gets quite painfull , when i stand it goes away
THIS IS WEARING ME OUT   PLEASE HELP !!

Maybe you should try going to an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist.  

One thing though--I once had a bronchitis type viral illness.  It took about 3 months to go away, even with medication.  Sometimes these things take a long time to clear up.  Especially if it's caused by a virus.  Try taking some Advil, maybe that will help.

Hi,

There are two possibilities in your case which seem to fit. Firstly, it could be a milder type of infectious mononucleosis in which there’s fever, sore throat and swollen neck glands. It is usually a self limiting illness. It is caused by a virus.

The second possibility is sialadenitis which means inflammation of the salivary glands present beneath the jaw line. I’ll advise you to consult an ENT specialist who can give you a better idea after the examination. It’s good that your blood reports and thyroid profile is okay.
I hope this helps. Please do keep me posted.

Kind Rgds.
