Not GERD related: Lymph nodes that are not swollen can not be felt so I am not sure what you are describing. Generally lymph nodes in the neck swell and become tender due to infections like sore throats and colds. GERD (acid reflux) is not associated with infections though, strangely, peptic (stomach) ulcers may occur due to a bacterial infection in the stomach lining (H Pylori) but are not assoc with swollen nodes
