Patient discussion about chocolate

Q. Is it possible to be addicted to chocolate? I love chocolate and eat at least a bar a day. Does this mean I am addicted to it?

A. few of my friends are addicted to dark chocolate, the really dark once. But I do believe its easy to quit (if you can resist that good taste), one of my friend eat dark chocolate just to help her fall asleep, which is very weird. But after she cured her sleeping problem she stopped eating.

Q. my friend ate a bar of chocolate and now her left neck gland is swollen any ideas why? no other symptoms

A. it can be an infection -just like brandon said- or although this is rare, it can also be an allergic reaction.
if it is an infection, you can usually find such other infection symptoms like : fever, pain in that swollen area, increased white blood cells (in blood work test), etc.

if it is an allergy, usually it will fade away itself in couple of days, or you can just try to consume anti-allergic drugs, such as : loratadine and maybe combined with dexamethasone.

Good luck, and stay healthy always..
