No doctor but it sounds like migraine. One sided headache. Confusion during and after, sensitivity to light and and sounds, unbalance, nausea and some more are common symptoms of migraine...If you have been checked i wouldnt worry about tumors =)
I have a sore throat (red, blood vessels galore, and swollen little nubbins in the very back) straight from hell right now, along with a headache, runny nose, and slight aches in ears and other body parts. Pretty sure mine's a cold. Pain relievers aren't helping. I hope you get answers soon.
There is viral strep. That’s why they swab for strep, they only prescribe antibiotics for bacterial strep A. If it’s viral then meds won’t help and you just have to power thru until your body can fight off the virus. Advil or other pain relievers can help, they can also prescribe an oral solution of lidocaine to help with the pain. My son just had bacterial strep last week and they gave him that as well as penicillin.
Just an Update:
Tonight I have severe pain in the right side of my mouth. It seems to travel up my glands towards my ear. My tonsils and mouth are completely red and there seems to be pus coming from the tonsils. Blood vessels can be seen all across my tonsils. Even a little blood.
I am really freaking out tonight and can barely swallow. Tomorrow I may go back to an Urgent care and get swabbed. It’s just hard to believe this is viral D’:
