Stiff Neck Lymph Nodes
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. ...Read more
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?

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?
Rare possibility: 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.
