    I became really ill, 10 months ago, and started to feel sick constantly and have really bad headaches. Then a few weeks later my glands started to swell. So I have been felling like this (feeling sick, having headaches and had swollen glands) for 10 months now. My doctor has just left it now as I have been tested a lot of times for many different things, refered to hospital and am on tablets to improve my head. However I became really ill again last friday and woke up the next morning to have two new bigger swollen glands and a swollen face. Any suggestions of what it could be, or to improve my symptoms.

    I've had a sore throat for about a week now, I took a look today and can see that my tonsils are very swollen (patchy red and white) with a few white spots on them. My glands are very swollen as well. My tonsils are gradually getting more swollen. However, I have no other symptoms of tonsillitis; Having had it a couple times in my childhood I know its not that.

    You might have glandular fever

    I am now 38 yrs old, and have been having pain in my testicles since I was 22. My sperm glands swell If I don't ejaculate every one to two days. If I wait any longer my sperm comes out in lumps and is often a yukky yellowish colour. I have had two different courses of antibiotics, been for surgery to remove kidney stones which were originally blamed for the discomfort. Still to this day, even as I'm typing my glands have swollen because I haven't ejaculated in two days. Doctors just don't tell you anything and discharge you. How can this be happening? I have been admitted to hospital in pain at least four times in the past 16 years and still none the wiser?

    Thanks for posting, Kendo. I thought I was alone. I have had the exact same symptoms for last 20 years. If I go more than 2 days without ejaculating, my semen becomes lumpy and yellow. I also get some pressure in the lower left abdominal area, which is generally relieved when I ejaculate. Been on Cipro, and a range of lesser anti-biotics over the years. Believe it or not, Olive Leaf Extract capsules (with a min. of 12% olipurin) and lot's of water has helped a little. Kendo, I noticed you originally posted on JAN 28 '11. Have you recieved any good advice since then? If so, please pass it on.

    I'm getting sore throat very regularly almost every 2/s weeks for a few days at a time with swollen glands. Should I check it as this has been going on since 2012

    on my aerola on both breasts I clearly have what I can only suggest is the montgomery glands after research. However, myn seem to be extremely swollen but cause no discomfort what so ever. However, a few are often like pimples and I can extract a thin white substances when squeezing them, something you would imaging coming out of a spot. I was just wondering if this is normal and if it would cause any problems in the future with breastfeeding?

    This is normal. It's actually the body's way of keeping the area moisturised and just what you need when breastfeeding. They are called the sebaceous glands.

    I have suffered with soar throats since I was a child but in September I got tonsilitus a few days after returning home from holiday. I then got it again the day after Boxing Day and since then I have got it every 2/3 weeks starting with swollen glands and turning into what I felt was tonsilitus feeling extremely I'll sometimes leaving me sick for over a week. Last time I had it I felt like fire was coming out my ears and my tonsils were on fire. I went to the docters and she told me there was nothing wrong with me. I went home and worked out it could be because of bad mould in my bedroom. I swapped bedrooms with my brother and I have since caught it again I started with swollen glands and a sore throat it's not turned into the pain it usually causes me but my throat is tight and I have swollen glands. I am currently seeing an ENT but he just said make a diary. Can anyone offer advice?

    I have these too! Thought I was the only one :( is there a cure or treatment?

    I had the same problem months ago and learned just over the weekend that I have genital herpes (HSV-1). If you are sexually active, you should frequently get tested for STD's (many of them cause painful, swollen lymph glands). My partner had never shown any symptoms, but I still contracted it from him. If you're not sexually active, anything from stress to mono can cause the swollen glands.

    I would really recommend having a tonsillectomy, I did last year and it is the best decision I've made, I haven't been ill at all since and before I had throat pain and earaches and swollen glands. Def get them taken out if you can as it's not bad and totally worth it.

    I didn't realise that many people were in the same situation as me! Although, like some people I do not have it for long periods of time. I tend to get it when I'm 'run down' as the Doctors say or stressed, but then sometimes I can just get it randomly. I first got it when I was about 8 on my forehead, didn't get it for years up until about 6 years or so ago I got it near my mouth, then since then I've had it every year about 2 or 3 times a year, but mostly now up and around my nose! As soon as I get it within hours my face swells up alot and my glands under my chin really swell up to prevent the infection. I have been given a cream called Bactorban like someone else mentioned on here, but I very really get given anti-biotics as depending on what Doctor I see they think I don't warrant any, even though my face and glands become so swollen! I just got told by one Doctor that it was 'one of those things' why I keep getting it, but I'm sick of it now!

    I Know how you feel Sam. I get it two or three times a year also and the GP is also very matter of fact. Just one of those thing, according to him! I first got it when I was 18 and it has struck around my eyes, nose, skin above my upper lip and on the neck. It strikes out of nowhere and often when I am feeling fine, though I am more at risk during illness. There must be a way of preventing it once and for all.

    I was worried that I had something wrong with my vulva and that area as there were little spots down there. I had it looked at by a doctor who said they were just glands that excrete mucus and stuff (not nice i know) but they are normal (everyone has glands there) and sometimes they fill like the glands elsewhere in your body. he said to only really worry if they hurt or are sore or get loads bigger. so the spots on your vagina might be that, but it is worth getting it checked out
