In brief: Lymph nodes maybe

lymph nodes generally get bigger when u get sick.
sometimes they can hurt but usually they don't. if u r feeling them along your neck, that's probably just from your sinus & ear infection. they should shrink back down when you get better. if you have lumps in other places or if they are big, you should have them checked out because that could be more serious problem
