Aching Lymph Nodes In Neck
Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph everywhere for bad stuff like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well.

Joint, muscle or URI: The most likely causes for your neck discomfort is arthritic change in your cervical spine. The pain comes from spasm of the muscles that overlie the bony spine or inflamed joints in the front (uncinate joints) and back (facet joints) of the spinal column in your neck. The lymph nodes raise the possiblity of upper respiratory infection, but there other serious causes for these so see your doctor.
Monitoring System: The lymphatic system absorbs and carries things too big to go into the arteries and veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. The lymph nodes "taste" the lymph to see if anything bad is there like bacteria, viruses, cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react.
Yes: Most of your lymph nodes are located in your head and neck region. Lymph nodes that frequently swell are in this area, as well as in your armpits and groin area. So this is normal but if they are swollen more than 2wks I would seek a MD for evaluation. No worriesSee 1 more doctor answer

I'm sore under ribs (10th). done nothing to hurt myself. Also sore in my lymph nodes in the left side of neck. Any idea what it could be?
Wait And See: Ya know, it may be nothing- and if it is, it'll probably all go away in a few days, but if either or both (the pain or nodes) persist over a week or two or get worse before then, then best for you to see a doc about it. Other than that, best not to worry too much about it unless, in two weeks, it hasn't gone away or gets worse.
