My mother is going through this right now. I have been crying a lot because she's in pain. Her ear hurts. The nodes became enlarged in October, the swelling went down - but she is experiencing pain and the ENT is now telling her that they need to do a biopsy. SHe had blood work, and a CT scan, they said that she had a paranasal disease. I am worried, my best friend had similar symptoms.... it ended up that she had Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. She is OKAY now, thanks to chemo, but it has been a rough road. I love my mom so much, but she has a lot of things wrong with her - she takes a lot of medication for her problems, and now we have this to deal with. I believe in God, so I will try to put this in His hands. I will pray for any of you here that need my prayers. No matter what the outcome, we can benefit by being here to support one another. Please feel free to reach out to me. I have been alone in this house today.... Crying some, then trying to push the negative thoughts away. I hope you all get positive outcomes.<br />

Love, Em Strange

If I may I would first recommend this book " Presc<x>ription for Nutritional Healing " I don't know why this book was renamed because for me the old title made more sense. " Alternative Healing through Nutrition"<br />
<br />
So anyway I recommend this book because I have used this book a number of times inorder to understand clearly as to what was happening in my body when having symptoms of one kind or another Your lymph nodes are an intricate part of your immune system and if they are swollen you have something that you must Not Ignore or play with it can be very serious. <br />
<br />
Please do not jump off in the deep end, Google the book and look up lymph nodes you can also find that book at hi-health or a health food store, sprouts has one also my point is you can walk up pick it up and have a read.... It's no joke it involves your immune system and it could be a number of things creating the irritation, the mistake a lot of people make is compare their situation with people around them the problem with that is that we are all individuals and everyone responds differently to treatments. I'll give you an example: There's a big movement in this country to legalize pot and you'll find 100's who claim it helps them but did you know that pot can weaken some peoples immune system. But only you know your body and paying close attention to what's going on with you will help you figure out what to do.
