Jamie, my swollen lymph nodes are on both sides of my neck. They run down both sides of my neck all the way to the bottom of both sides of my neck right above my collar bone. I'm not sure that I've given you a very good visual. I guess I haven't worried too much about
mine because mine get swollen everytime I get really worn out and sick and have ever since I had mono in 1985. It's probably wise to keep an eye on yours and get them checked every so often, especially if they change at all. Most likely they are just swollen nodes and nothing to worry about
, but it is always a good idea to keep an eye on things.
Like aquarias said, there is always hope that you might feel better. I went into a remission for about
10 years and was able to live a fairly normal life, although I required more rest than most people. Then about
2 years after my youngest child was born I got sick again and a lot of my bloodwork has now tested positive for lupus, but there is also hope of remission too with lupus.
