Customer Question

I recently had neuralgia problem which started on 13th of March it started with a shoulder pain and then started with some really strong headache that was starting from the back of my neck and going to my brain like electric impulses, it was really painful but it didn’t last more than 48 hours. I had a lot of blurry vision and I wasn’t remembering properly, I went to physiotherapy as I spoke with a gp and thats what they diagnosed but ever since that I don’t quite feel like I’m okay with the neck part of my body for some reason, now I’m experiencing Swollen glands in my neck but I also felt 1-2 weeks ago that the muscles on my jaw are getting richer and now I’m feeling like the muscles next to my eyes are getting tight as well. Is there something I should worry about because everything I read in google is either something like cancer or tumour ....which is worrying me a lot

You don't have to worry about and cancer or tumor. The swollen glands could be simply due to a viral infection and it will settle.
