Swollen Lymph Node in neck

I posted last year when I was dianosed with a swollen lymph nodes that turned out to be a swollen salivary gland. I learned an important lesson after taking 3 courses of antibiotics. Don't mess around with a regular doctor when you have a specific problem. Go to a specialist early on. This time my face feels swollen and tight on the right side. It comes and goes. I've had post nasal drip on right side for about 3 weeks. Went to regular doctor who said I have shotty lymph nodes on right side. He gave me Singular and nose spray that helped for 6 days and then the swollen feeling came back. Went to ENT doctor who found one swollen lymph node that is tender to touch. I started feeling exhausted the past few days with no other symptoms. She has me on an antiobiotic for 7 days and then I go back in 3 weeks. I'm a little worried again. The node was deep and I didn't feel it myself. She also mentioned that I might have tmj because the swelling seems to be in the jaw area but I also feel a fullness or pressure inside ears that comes and goes. Do these symptoms sound familiar to anyone. Can allergic rhinitis cause my lymph node to swell?

Re: Swollen Lymph Node in neck

I do know that most anything can cause lymph nodes to swell since their job is to catch all the bad cells and destroy them. Last year I was bit by a bug on my neck and the lymph node under my ear swelled pretty big. It was scary. It did go down and away.
Be persistent in your qwest to find out what is causing the enlargements in your lymph nodes. You may be feeling exhausted because you are worried. Do you have a follow up appt with the ENT doctor?
