 Chest pain Heart diseases CT scan Chest pressure Chest tightness Swollen glands Angina Chest Heart Esophagus Lung Liver NOS Pancreas Reflux Computed tomography Pain Enlarged lymph nodes

Quite a few causes


Chestwall itself, esophagus/stomache, lungs, heart, pancreas, and even liver problems can cause chest pain. In the young, more likely chestwall itself or reflux is causing pain. As we get older heart disease becomes more common cause of concern. Since u gave only limitted info, it is diiffult to tell what you have. Please repost a more specific question or consult your doc.

Swollen lymph nodes


swelling of lymph nodes would not be expected from an allergic reaction, infection would be the most likely cause, see a physician for an evaluation and physical exam.

Many options


With the history of trauma, perhaps you need to have a dental exam. Are the nodes present on both sides of your jaw? Regardless, you need a careful exam to determine what is going on. Good luck.

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

Yes, it can


cause inflamed lymph nodes next to the gallbladder, when it gets inflamed. But you will not be able to feel these lymph nodes because they are deep inside. If you can feel enlarged lymph nodes in the neck or groin, these are not caused by gallstones.
