I have the feeling of very swollen lymph nodes and very sore neck the following day after falling and hitting back of head. My head was badly hurting following the fall, although I did not lose consciousness. Should I be concerned?

Depends. If your symptoms are improving, you may watch and wait. If the symptoms persist a week or so, without improvement, after the fall, you should see a doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.
