I went to the E.R. and told the doc what I was going thru and told him I was tired and the my lymph nodes in my neck were swollen and they were not painful, nor did I have a cough or runny nose or any other kind of sickness. I was perfectly fine except for the swollen glands in my neck. He told me I had a sinus infection and gave me antibiotics and sent me on my way. I went back 3 days later with a major migrane and vomiting and so on and a different doc said it was a symptom with my sinus infection and gave me a pain shot and then he sent me on my way. So I went to my doc about a week and a half later and I told him what I was going thru and he said I didnt have a sinus infection (I even had a CT scan done-everything normal) and I was to finnish out the antibiotics. You know I had blood work done and everything was normal, no infections, no cancer, but my nodes are still swollen and they dont know why. I knew I didnt have a sinus infection, but something is wrong and I dont know what, Can someone plz help me. I have had these swollen nodes for 3 wks and are now on both sides of my neck.

  • I have thyroid disease and have those same lumps. Get your thyroid checked as that is a possible symptom. It is a simple blood test.
