What the hell...

I've been fighting my annual fall sinus infection this past month. I called in sick to work today and went to the doctor. She's afraid I might have a clogged salivary gland and that is why the left side of my neck is a giant swollen mess. Seriously, I look like no-neck football guy. It's bizarre. It hurts like hell. I never had this much throat pain in my life. I can barely swallow and when I do I wince. She made sure that I get to the emergency room if I have any issues breathing or if I can no longer swallow. That scared the piss out of me. I knew that I was sick but I hate finding out I'm sicker than I thought. Now I have a friend that is calling me in the morning to make sure I answer.

She referred me to an ear, nose, and throat specialist for next week because she has never seen anything like this. Then she gave me a bunch of prescriptions - antibiotics, and something for acid reflux so I can continue taking ibuprofen for the inflammation and pain. She also told me to add tylenol to my cocktail.
