Three swollen cervical lymph nodes all on left side of neck some ear pain doctor HS seen one of them says wait 2 month fbc normal should I be worried?

Lymph nodes: The lymph nodes usually enlarge as response to an infection in the vicinity.It lasts maximum 2-3 weeks and as the infection goes away (with antibiotics usually) the lymph nodes disappear.

Have a slight cold. Tonight I held one nostril closed and blew to try and clear other nostril and had immediate ear pain on the clogged side. ?

Pressurized tube: With blowing your nostrils in this manner, the concern is that by doing so, you have opened up the Eustachian tube and added air to the canal which opens up on the inside of your eardrum. This can not only be painful, but could result in bursting of your eardrum. See a doctor who can evaluate your eardrum. ...Read more
