I get the very same thing. In fact, I've posted on this board recently with the same worry. I went to my dr. yesterday and she felt my lymph nodes and said they felt normal. My guess is that when I go through a very stressful period, my neck and jaw muscles get sore and tingly, and it makes the glands under my neck feel tingly and sore too. You may need some meds and massages to help relieve the tension. Good luck!
Hi, I've got the same situation. I had viral lymphopathy (swollen glands in my neck) likely because of a sore throat. The doc said that the glands were 90% back to normal (took about 2 weeks). But since I have anxiety, I also feel tightness and am very aware of my neck, throat, and jaw and imagine that everything is swelling up again and the virus is back. I am glad to hear that it could be anxiety since I suspected that. And that it is relatively common. I am hypochondriac and went on celexa to see if it will help.
Thank you all for bringing up the tension in the neck. I am having the SAME problem. My neck/should and jaw area is soooo tense. I take a hot bath..which does seem to help. I am going to start treating myself to monthly massages.
I have the very same problem. Mine is HORRIBLE. On some days when i'm stressed, i'll get a knot on the back right side of my neck that is so big it looks like a folded towel under my skin and gives me the worst headache.
