Yesterday around 7pm I was walking to the store when I got this pain under my tounge.  Like it was burning and it got pretty bad.  then it started to ease up. Stayed annoyng till around 11pm. At which point it blew up like a baloon coming out of my throat.  My right side kinda looked like jabba the hut.  So i jump in car service and head over to the hospital.  They were jammed pack and all the curtain rooms were full and there were beds in front of those rooms and then even more beds in front of those.  Which is where they put me.  By the time a dr came to see me the actual lump was gone and the swelling had pretty much disipated.  they take my temp which was 97.9 I never felt feverish.  2 nurses checked my temp and  both were in the 97 range.  The dr comes and decides i'm too warm for her and wants to take my temp rectally.  Was not going to happen. They take 2 cultures and assume its strep.  I ended up leaving the hospital came home and took 2 benedryl tablets and it all went away.  Do have a bit of a sore throat today and appointment with my reg doctor tomorrow morning.  never goin to the ER again unless i absolutley have to.

 sounds much more like an allergic reaction to something! holy wow! that could have been life threatening fast. a little scary. i would personaly definitely have your Dr do an allergy screening if its NOT strep.

 The thing is my breething was never affected.  It started to get harder and harder to swallow anything.  Thats when I got up to look in the mirror and decided it was time to go to the hospital.

when it first happend  I remember feeling like a bee sting or maybe a bite but it was under my tounge and I thought that was strange.  then it started to burn.    My dh thinks i must of swallowed a bug or something which is gross.   Hopefully the dr tomorrow can tell me more.   Its still a lil sore where it all started.
