how many doctors can i see in a week?

well, let's see. so far, i've seen a doctor at the ER on monday, my neurologist on tuesday. i'll be seeing a dermatologist today and an ENT on friday.

why all these docs? this weekend, the glands on the left side of my face and neck swelled up like crazy. i'm talking larger than a golfball bulge under my ear/jaw, a stand of swollen, tender glands along the left of my face, and up to a nasty lump that looks like maybe a spiderbite or something above my left eyebrow. it's tender and sore.

at the ER, they did a catscan and said that i have parotitis which sounds nasty but it just means i have an infected salivary gland. no tests as to why or what the infection is, or why the left side is all swollen or what this nasty lump thing is.

had a regular neurologist appointment yesterday. we're working on breaking the chronic daily headaches that have been developing back to episodic headaches.

the dermatologist will hopefully figure out what the heck this nasty thing is on my forehead. it's kinda itchy. and it looks worse every day.

and friday, i'm seeing my ENT (a fellow gator!!) to see what she can determine about all these glands. she's done a biopsy in the past of an enlarged lymph node on the side/back area of my neck...cancer was a concern but it came back negative.

i long for the days of feeling and being healthy.
