Can heart burn cause swollen lymph nodes or problems with your throat?

Can heart burn cause swollen lymph nodes or problems with your throat?

No and yes: Laryngopharyngeal reflux, or acid reflux that affects the upper throat, usually causes throat clearing, thick mucus in the throat, hoarseness, cough, and sensation of a "lump" in the throat.

Neck and shoulders feel very warm, increased heart rate, right thyroid feel enlarged, no fever, no swollen lymph nodes, sweaty hands?

Neck and shoulders feel very warm, increased heart rate, right thyroid feel enlarged, no fever, no swollen lymph nodes, sweaty hands?

Some thoughts: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, and overactive thyroid due to irritation (or even rarely Tumor) of the thyroid can certainly increase metabolism. Would be easily checked with a regular doctor appointment, but overactive thyroid is quite harsh on the system and shouldn't be let go for days. ...Read more
