The doctor doesn't think I have mumps

After a five second examination of my throat she thinks I have, in her expert opinion, "whatever's going around". I think I'm going to change to another doctor.

IMO "whatever's going around" includes:

sore throat - don't have one
runny nose - don't have one
headache - ok, got one of those
stiff neck - check
hotcoldhotcold - check
temperature - check

and does not include swollen face, bizarrely swollen salivary glands and pain when I move my eyes up, down and side-to-side.

I'm not over the moon with being ill and even though you're thinking it (because I can read minds) I don't think that I am that much of a hypochondriac. Whatever it is, it's a virus so I will keep popping the painkillers.
