Hi everyone, I'm new to this. So I have a doc appointment in 2 weeks but I'm eager to check if anyone knows what I can possibly be going through. I've had outdoor allergies for over 2 months now (lots of phlem, dry throat, inflammation of the tonsils, and that's it; no runny nose or constant sneezing). I saw my doctor about a month ago and got allergy medicine along with a blood test which came out fine. My tonsils are no longer swollen but it worries me that I constantly (everyday) have a dry throat. I don't know if it's due to the phlem? Because it never goes away nor its phlem that I can take out, its more like post nasal drip but idk if that's whats causing my dry throat. Besides that, it worries me more that for over 3 months I've had this swelling in the front of my neck. Its soft swelling. It gives me no pain. I don't have a hoarse voice nor a cough. I do not have any other symptoms other than those mentioned. At first I thought it was a goiter or a thyroid swelling problem but if it was (or so I read) any hormonal imbalance due to the thyroid would come out in blood tests and mine came out fine. The last time I went to the doc she touched the swelling area but didn't say anything of it she just said "oh you have a bit swelling here" and that was that. But its not normal! The swelling is like a long line running across my neck from left to right. Its only the bottom part of my neck. You cant see it but you can feel it. Has anyone else experienced this? It doesn't look like swollen lymph nodes either cus like I said its more like a straight line and it worries me so much that it doesn't go away :( I'm getting checked in 2 weeks for dry throat and that swelling sensation but wanted to hear from someone first if something like this has happened to anybody.
