Re: Can Gerd and smoking cause enlarged Lymph nodes
Usually a sign of infection especailly if you are prone to sore throats. If the Dr didn't seem too concern about it then I wouldn't worry just yet. Did he do blood work? Did he palpatate the nodes? If they are a size of a pea they usually don't bother with them unless they start to grow. Personally, if you feel they didn't give you a CLEAR answere you need to ask them, if they were concerned you would have heard about it, but since you are fretting about it, to ease your mind call and ask just what are they. Smoking may not be helping any, at least cut back!
