 have been dx with infected salivary glands.  Have been treated with antibiotics 3 times in passed 2 and half years and have been on predisone as well. I am symptom free during treatment, afterwards, the symptoms recur.  Initially, the swelling appeared on one side, now it swells on both sides.  With warm compresses and massage to areas along with eating sour foods, the swelling goes down and reappear practically every other day.  There is burning and itching under my tongue which wakes me up at night.  Last, I have began to feel light headed, especially while driving or going across high bridges.  After getting a CT scan of my glands, I am scheduled to follow up with my ENT next week.  Can anyone tell me if they are going through this and maybe what to expect?  I need a little support or maybe a little advice.
