woke up this morning with swelling from ear to under my chin. It's sore, esp when I swallow. I'd say it was tonsillitis, but I've not had tonsils since I was 12!

Dh is a GP, he says it's "probably viral", but it hurts even to swallow my own saliva and I've been on ibuprofen all day!

I had similar when I was 16 and had difficulty and hurt when opening my mouth to eat - not a sore throat- but he diagnosed me with MUMPS.
