Ahh - yes. I posted about
this a few weeks ago when I started IV vancomycin for my bart…. I had multiple swollen nodes in/around head and neck - very uncomfortable for a few weeks. Much better now w/ red root and just getting more of the bart knocked out. Here is the thread FYI:www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=30&m=3621915
From what I've learned, Bart and other infections (microbial, viral, parasite) often get caught in the lymph system. Lyme likes to hide out there to evade the immune system. And when you start treating, the blood pushes the meds through the lymph filters, causing debris and toxins to sometimes get caught up there.
So it's not an uncommon symptom. When I was younger, I had swollen cervical nodes nearly all through my teens and 20s - could never shake it. I also had recurring mono and bad TMJ that started when I was younger. I'm not sure about
the chicken or egg - perhaps I became infected much younger than I thought.
This was an interesting study:cid.oxfordjournals.org/content/35/6/643.full
