In brief: If you have swollen

lymph notes you need to see your doctor. Please see him/her to rule out possible medical conditions.
Please visit a clinical psychologist because you MAY have an anxiety disorder or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. We create rituals or behaviors to control a largely un-controllable world. Peace and good health.
