Q: I have been really sick, this started on Saturday with extreme body pains and a sore throat on one side, on that same side I have had a lump surrounded with pus, my lymph node swollen just on that side not the other. But my entire throat is swollen and red. I have a mild fever. Tuesday I went to the doctor, it was a small clinic and the flu test came up negative, the strep test did also but she says if she had the ability to "grow the test" over night she is almost positive that is what It is because it presents itself exactly like it, plus I was taking an antibiotic before I ever went to the doctor that my aunt prescribed me so maybe that's why it came up negative. I have had an ear ache on that side too and have lots of pressure in my face now( now Thursday) I have been taking an antibiotic and just finished the bottle today, I am feeling slightly better except for body pains, etc. except I now have a little pimple like bump in the back of my throat. I am Just wondering if this could be part of an STD? I am slightly a hypochondriac and cannot stop worrying.
