Hi how are ya ?<br />
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 />
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 a symptoms of one kind or another. On one occasion my skin was extremely itchy and whenever my skin would come in contact with anything that area would swell up things got worse I couldn't lay down and sleep because whenever I did I would wind up with pain in my back so I had to sleep sitting in a chair. I did go see my doctor and specialist none could tell me what was wrong with me or wouldn't ??? Which is how I got on to this book I mean I had to do something right. I learned that your skin is the largest organ of your body and if you have things showing up on your skin its an indicator that whatever it is its overloading the rest of your organs and the last place to go is your skin. Your lymph nodes is 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. My skin problem was caused because I was thinking that I was eating and living healthy and like the rest of the planet its always been said an Apple a day keeps the doctor away. Well I ate an Apple every day and one day I just thought why not just eat the seeds core and all, after all we all eat different types of seeds I thought Apple seeds would be good as well little did I know that arsenic occurs naturally in Apple seeds. I developed arsenic poisoning which can lead to death but through study and being proactive and of course Gods mercy I made it through that part of my life. There is more that I can share on this subject so if you have any questions just message me. God Bless You.
I think you need to see a better doctor. It may be an allergy, but swollen lymph nodes can be a sign of something far more serious. Get a second opinion from another doctor.

Yes it is possible. But agree that it sounds more like an infection. Have your doc run an ELISA test to R/O allergy or sensitivities.
No, it sounds like an infection. But that is definitely not a symptom of an allergic reaction (except the itchiness). I am an EMT.
There is a condition called direticulitis (sp?) that causes similar symptoms when people eat seeds.
The stiffness is probably residual inflammation, which is vest treated with anti-oxidants.
Yes. But go to the Dr.
Hello briecks 07. I know this is an old post but I too get swollen lymph nodes due to sunflower seeds. I was doing some research about it and found your post. Did you ever figure out what the issue was.
