Sounds normal.: Lymph nodes can be enlarged with any infection or inflammation in the area of the lymph node, so having swollen lymph nodes in your neck while being congested for a prolonged period of time would be quite common. I'm glad you saw your doctor, as this helps to confirm this. If they persist, I would have them rechecked by your doctor and ask about them at that time.
