The title is pretty self-explanatory. I noticed the right gland in my neck was swollen last night and then this morning it was worse so I didn't run. I think it may be from my right lower wisdom tooth which flared up for a few days. Is it okay to run or am I fighting some kind of evil bug and I should just rest?

eL Bee!
'tis your immune system 'working' on something.
I'd say don't run - but then I'm a lazy git! :)

Thanks for the thoughts. My immune system seems to be doing too much work recently!

Got something to say?
