Can A Stiff Neck Cause Swollen Lymph Nodes
For over a month I have had a stiff neck (or possibly swollen lymph nodes) on my right side and no fever or other symptoms. What could it be?
Be seen: I would certainly consider being seen, particularly if it has not improved over a month. If it is from swollen lymph nodes, these are usually associated with some form of infectious or inflammatory process. The other possibility is that it is related to some underlying abnormality in the spine itself. A detailed exam and appropriate studies would determine the likely cause. ...Read more

Injury from tree between neck and shoulder, severe pain, stiff neck, red itchy rash burns when touched and swollen lymph nodes? Been to chiropractor
See a physician: Nothing against chiropractors but the rash and lymph nodes are not in their field of expertise and should be evaluated by a physician. If the chiropractor has been unable to help with the neck and shoulder discomfort I would take any imaging he/she has done and seek an opinion for an orthopedic doctor. Could be just soft tissue injury or maybe a small fracture. Please see an md for evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have had a swollen lymph node on neck and stiff neck for a week now. I had a hepatits B vaccination the day before the stiff neck began, related?
Side effects to this vaccine are rare but statistically possible. Your symptoms are listed as low possibility. Lymph nodes produce antibodies when the body begins to fight infection. Vaccines "trick" the body into thinking there is an infection so the antibodies are ready to attack the real virus quickly if it gets in you. See your MD this week as symptoms over a week.

Started off with a a really bad headache, turned into a sore throat with only the left ear irritated. Swollen lymph node. Now a stiff neck &head?
Seasonal flu is very common viral infection with symptoms you have described. Usually the condition resolves on its own with home care. Drink water and get a good rest. NSAIDs (e.g. Aleve) are also recommended every 6 hours. If concerned, see your PCP after 4 days or so. Take this opportunity and quit smoking.
Inflammation: Any inflammation, even dandruff in the area drained by the lymph node can result in enlargement. You may feel the node every couple of weeks, if the lymph gland doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, or other nodes become enlarged, or you develop fever, or lose weight, you should see a doctor. ...Read more
Yes.: This is probably the most common cause of enlarged lymph nodes in the neck. After a patient recovers from the uri, the lymph nodes should cease to enlarge, and then gradually shrink down to their normal size (this sometimes can take 4-6 weeks). If the lymph nodes do not follow this pattern, then you may need further evaluation. ...Read more
It depends: We need to know more. How long have you had these nodes and what is their size? Are they increasing in size? If they are bigger than 2 Cm and increasing in size in 1 to 2 months, you need to be examined by a physician. If the nodes are suspicious for Cancer, a biopsy is the best way to find out or exclude Cancer as the cause. Infections can also cause swelling of lymph nodes (Tender to touch) ...Read more

No: Cocaine or other drugs (even sniffed) would not do this. If you have a sore throat, that's probably the cause and both this and the enlarged nodes should clear pretty soon on their own. If not, and especially possible enlarged nodes persist more than 1-2 weeks, see a doctor and get it checked out. ...Read more
Depends: It is unlikely that the cocaine in and of itself would cause lymph nodes to swell (lymphadenopathy); however, whatever other substances are within the administered drug could very well do so. Use of cocaine is incredibly dangerous, not only for the well known effects and addiction issues, but also because of the co-administered materials "cut" with this drug of abuse. ...Read more
Infection...: The most common cause of slightly swollen lymph nodes around the neck are infections caused by viruses and bacteria. Upper respiratory infections, mononucleosis, and strep throat are common infectious agents. After the infection is cleared by the body, the swollen lymph nodes can sometimes take 1-2 months to subside. Much rarer causes are cancers like lymphoma. ...Read more
