I searched this forum for lymph nodes, didnt find anything.
I have been feeling pain in what appears to be number 7 in this picture:anterior cervical node
i know nothing about lymph nodes but a quick goodle search for anterior cervical pain + ulcerative colitis came up with a lot of articles that i either needed to pay for or that were too complex for me to understand. But there definateley seems to be a connection in some people. Autoimmune conditions can cause nod eenlargement, or it could be an infection, there are probably a whole bunch of other causes, but autoimmune disease is one of them.
if anyone can help me out with some knowledge it would be appreciated. i will be calling my ENT soon as these neck glands are related to sinus passages and salivatory glands. its funny how he has been more of a help than all the GI's i have seen combined
