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
 
 
thank you,
jay

I can't really help you Jay since I don't know much about this, but I just wanted to say that on occasion I will get the swelling in my lymph node behind my ear. The first time it happened I thought I had another cyst. The swelling went down in about a week but it was sort of painful and would wake me up when I rolled over on it. I had no other symptom that came with it Uc or otherwise - it just popped up one day.

My #7 node has been swollen for the past 3-4 weeks. I had a throat infection a few weeks ago, took antibiotics and it cleared up, but the lymph node still feels slightly swollen. No pain, though. My neck does get stiff a lot, but I think that has more to do with sitting at a desk at work all day and having poor posture. Have you talked to your ENT yet? I'd be interested in hearing what he/she says.

Jay,

I had neck pain for period of a few months, when the doctors got round to checking it out it was revealed that I had 2 prolapsed cervical spine discs including C6/C7 and C3, I was close to paralysis because one was pushing dangerously against the spinal cord, so I had no choice other than surgical removal of the dangerous disc that was in September this year, I still have a prolapsed cervical spine disc and I'm in agony I find it difficult to move my head/neck up or down as it sends electric shock type pains from my neck, back and down my left arm I have since learnt that the scarring from the surgical procedure is pushing against a nerve hence the increased pain.

My advice to you is to not delay getting this checked out and make sure you get all the facts if you consider surgery, apparently it is common to be in more pain after the surgery they conveniantly forget to mention that pre surgery. Doctors are unable to tell me whether I will heal or not, I just have to keep hoping and praying.
