: DOES ANYONE HAVE CHRONIC ALLERGIES THAT AFFECT THEIR LYMPH NODES, IE. SWELLING AND ACHING.??? I HAVE TWO BEAUTIFUL DOGS I AM ALLERGIC TO AND I AM WONDERING IF MY LYMPH NODES MAY SWELL AND ACHE DUE TO THE CONTINUOUS EFFECT OF ALLERGIES IN MY BODY. CAN ANYONE HELP ME ON THIS ONE.
I have chronic allergies and also lymph nodes that are always swollen. I have been to the doctor many times to have them checked out and have had blood tests done, all of them normal. Apparently some people's lymph nodes react to allergies because part of their function is helping to drain the sinus and nasal cavities.
