Severe throat pain
Symptoms started showing since yesterday night and it's getting worse by now. Difficulty in swallowing, even saliva. Swelling under left side of the jaw. Pain in left ear since morning. Can't open mouth fully to even speak. Booked an appointment at 3pm since doctor is only available then. Any suggestions are welcome.
