    I am feeling worse than usual but I am not sure if I have Mumps or not, I need to go to the dr.

    I am aching all over like usual but worse, I have pain in my throat, it hurt to swallow or cough.

    I have a headache and fever too.

    Any advice would be helpful thanks Pamela

    I never experienced it, but my brother had it.

    I hope you do not have them..........Susan

    an easy way to tell if you have mumps is the classic symptom that the glands in your neck will be so swollen that you can actually see them. in most mumps cases this happens. i hope you don't have mumps and that you start to feel better real soon! i hope this helps.

    Dear Pamela,
    Heree's a hint, think of eating a lemon. Does it hurt at the end of your jaw, right under your ears? If so, you might have the mumps. Best to check as soon as possible, either way. I hope you don't.

    Good luck,
    Terry

    for your thoughts and prayers, I will try that lemon idea. It is hurting in my jaw where they say it will hurt if you do have mumps and it is getting harder and more painful to swallow.

    Thanks again, Pamela

    You poor thing, one thing after another.

    I don't think they do much to treat it, just have to ride it out from what i heard on t.v.

    I hope that's not what you have.

    Best wishes,
    Claudia
