Has anyone ever felt this when they had a cold?

It kind of hurting to swallow, like when you do swallow it feels kind of like there's a lump there (but none) also neck lymph nodes swollen?

  • check the back of your throat for white patches---could be strep. Or just a basic sore throat. Rinse with warm salt water and suck on throat lozenges. Lots of should feel better in a few days....

  • You may have strep throat. If it is strep you need an antibiotic to get rid of the infection, it will not go away by itself and if left untreated can cause other problems. If it feels like you are swallowing glass then it is more than likely strep.
