Time to get checked: It is hard to say what is going on. Colds and sore throats can cause lymph nodes to go up and down. But if the nodes persist and don't change in size, is is worth getting checked by your doc Other things can cause your symptoms that can be minor or major.You need to be evaluated.The sooner you do, the quicker you'll know if this is serious or not and you can relax. Avoid scents, smoke (irritants)
