Something on the left side of my neck right about where my lymph node is feels like it gets caught and causes severe pain. Should i be concerned?

Question unclear: It is difficult to picture what you are talking about. Suggest you see a doctor and show this to them. It probably will go away on its own, but if continues, definitely see somebody. Concern is minimal, but varies from person to person. Good luck and hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

I have a small swollen node on the left side of the back of my neck. I also have had severe migraines over the course of the past month. Could they be?

Probably unrelated: The two are probably not related. Small nodes in the neck are not uncommon and may develop due to issues in the scalp like dandruff. It is generally not feasible to nail the cause of migraines. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Migraine is probably unrelated to the neck node, yet a medical exam and treatment is necessary and will help you control it and make you feel well if you take a triptan medication which can work wonders to control a migraine. ...Read more

Tested neg after 8 weeks HIV exsposer. Having severe leg pain swollen lymp nodes could I still have HIV? What else could this be.  Scared plz help

Not HIV. Cellulitis?: HIV doesn't cause leg pain or swollen lymph nodes in one location such as groin. And impossible to have HIV with symptoms at 8 weeks with negative HIV test. HIV definitely is not the cause of this problem. Maybe cellulitis (skin infection) or some other sort of inflammation in your leg? See doctor ASAP, especially leg is sore or tender or you have fever. You may need an antibiotic. ...Read more
