    I haven't been feeling too well this afternoon - I have one visibly swollen tonsil but the other seems fine . . . I have a sore throat and it hurts to swallow as well. Under my jaw is quite tender to touch and I am a bit sniffly. I've had tonsilitis a few times before but that's only ever been two tonsils swollen. Any advice?

    The pain in my jaw has improved but I'm now a bit feverish and my throat is getting worse . . . I'm a bit worried as I never normally feel this ill.

    Could just be the very early stages maybe? Perhaps by tomorrow both will be swollen.

    Worth seeing your GP to double check that this isn't a peri-tonsillar abscess that needs draining.

    That's what I was worried it might be. I have a few cold symptoms now so may pop in at some point.
