4 months ago I took a nice long draw off a pipe filled with cannabis. I felt something along the right side of my throat that is hard to put into words, but suddenly my lymph nodes on both sides of my throat began to swell. I immediately became anxious thinking it would close off my airway. Looking in the mirror it looked like I had 2 eggs tucked under my skin. I went to an urgent care clinic that morning. After APN assessment I was given antibiotics and sent on my way. Basically had no clue and just a wait and see. After taking the round of ABT the swelling had gone down enough it wasn't visible, but my nodes were still swollen. I made an appointment with my primary care. After examination and asking his questions his advice was to just wait and see. He also prescribed me another round of ABT. Currently the nodes are still swollen. Nodes aren't tender and I am able to move them. Isn't causing me any physical discomfort. The discomfort is psychological knowing this isn't right. 

 

Does anyone have any experience, or heard of anything?

From experience, an ultrasound of one's neck can determine if the swelling is malignant or benign. I'd go to the best hospital/university system near you and see an otolaryngologist.

Not working right now. Back Injury and healing, no insurance. Once I get back into the field I'll seek out a otolaryngologist. 

 

I've looked online and haven't found anything comparable. 

 

Thanks CatsAndBats

 

 

 

edit: forgot to put "no" beside insurance

I had problems with my lymph nodes swelling so badly I could not hardly move my neck as a child, and a few rare recurances when I was a teenager.

I now know it is usually a sign that your immune system is fighting off an infection of some sort, which is likely if the antibiotics reduced the swelling.

This could absolutely be a sign of something else going on, so you should not ignore it, or let it go very long if it gets worse, but here are some herbal treatments to at least try to see if the swelling and infection can be helped naturally.

 

Most of these are things I have had some success with for treating infection. Just enough to help your own body get an upper hand on it, but safer than repeated antibiotic. I am sure you know if any development gets worse you need to get to a doctor.

I've read that lymph swelling is a precursor to fighting off infection.

 

Thank you for the website.

Try making a tincture of 1c apple cider vinegar, 1c raw honey and 15 garlic cloves. Blend it up and store it a quart jar in the fridge. 2 tbs in the morning mixed with juice before eating or drinking anything else for a half hour. Food grade Ascorbic acid can be found pretty cheap by the lb on ebay also and is a major player in keeping you healthy. I hope you get better.

Ok, so I don't want to scare you on purpose or anything, but I have a pretty bad experience with lymph nodes. I had a Lymphoma and survived. It was also manifesting in swollen (growing) lymph nodes. In my case they were inside where the lungs are. This is no joke, just to be safe ask them to do a lymph node biopsy to exclude the possibility it is cancer (God forbid). Look up lymphoma symptoms online and see if you have any that you could mention to the doctors.

I'll give it a go.

Not going to scare me, but appreciate the concern. I don't have insurance right now. I injured my back and quit my job after reinjuring 3 times in a year. Yeah, I was an idiot for not jumping through hoops, but I was sick of having to tell patients I couldn't come and having other co-workers have to cover. It wasn't worth it to me. I've looked up all I know how. The nodes aren't tender although swollen. When I get back to work hopefully I can get into a specialist. I hoped someone from this sight had this experience to ease my mind.

Easing your mind regarding swollen lymph nodes probably won't come via strangers at a mushroom growing forum. I don't know where you're located but people with the least Federal Reserve notes often get better access to those with a little more. You could also try "free clinics" (or whatever they may be called in your area) and see what they offer.

Some of us do offer discount surgery on the side though. :tongue:

For the lymph system:  Move your body.  Jump up and down.  Shake it baby!   Up and down stairs.  Get one of those little trampoline thingies.

For what it's worth, I'd lay my professional opinion on the bowl rip and the swelling being mere coincidence. 

 

I split (just short of) a fifth of Grey Goose with a pal Saturday night and woke up with type B flu.  At first I thought it was the worst hangover from the best vodka, but that doesn't make sense ... kwinky-dink, as we say in the profession.  Feces transpires at odd times all the time.

 

Snarf them pills, hit the free clinic (or the ER - they can't make ya pay - trust me), lots of fluids and ....

 

Well, I'm not sure I follow Alder's trampoline cure, but ... it probably won't hurt.  Unless it does.  Then stop.

 

My armpit nodes got all swollen once and freaked me the fuck out.  After a week it went away, and I blocked out the entire experience until right now...

 

Waking nightmares of armpit carvings and worse ... chances are it'll settle back down.  Pills, fluids, (trampolines?) ... rest.

6 Ways to Boost Circulation for Detoxing and Immunity

 

6. Shake it up with vibration and rebounding therapies

It seems obvious that shaking and bouncing your body around will get your blood pumping. But is there any evidence that they actually work to increase cardiovascular circulation and lymph flow? Turns out there is: A recent study published in Medical Science Monitor found that "Five minutes of 30 Hz or 50 Hz vibration produced significant increases in skin blood flow."

Rebounding (jumping on a trampoline) appears to be especially effective at improving lymph system circulation. Lymphatic fluid is completely dependent on physical exercise to move, and the up-and-down rhythmic gravitational force caused by jumping on a trampoline causes the lymph system’s one-way valves to open and close, increasing lymph flow.

“The repetitive rhythmic motion of bouncing on a mini trampoline provides a simple, zero-impact exercise method with long-term mental and physical health benefits,” writes Dr. Tina Wellman, a psychoneuroendocrinologist and author of books on blending exercise, nutrition, and detoxification to achieve wellness, in an article for Total Health. ”These benefits include increasing oxygen uptake and promoting detoxification via the lungs, skin, and lymph.”

That "detoxing" boost is probably contraindicated if you have metastatic cancer. Which, if it's in your lymph, there's a solid chance it is.

Yeah, it's probably much better to detox the lymph before you have metastatic cancer.   Might even qualify as a preventative at that stage.

I guess you could call it, "elimination." 

 

It's a bit strange, that when I did a search on "lymph," and "motion," many of the first hits I got were cancer related sites.  It would seem that it would be optimum at just about any stage to have the lymph system doing its job to its maximum capabilities.   

 

When I was a teen, I got sick for quite a few weeks and my symptoms quickly got a diagnosis of mononucleosis.   My mother, the nurse for a GP, did everything in the office, including blood work.   It turned out that my mono wasn't mono at all, but like mono, my blood was overloaded with white cells, hence the symptoms closely matched mono.  The white cells that had created the high white count were not monocytes, but lymphocytes.  I don't know what all that means, but, it was nice to have a month off from the nightmare of school and to watch cartoons and game shows instead.

I've done this daily. I'm not saying there normal because I don't know what normal is after feeling my throat these past few weeks. I THINK they are normal though.

If those notes were plenty I wouldn't be asking ya'll

I have not been working, but I have been doing step ups 8" 400-500 bilateral. I should do more, but I'm lazy.

You may be right in the coincidence. I only know what I felt. The feces transpiring is odd, but to each his own. Free clinics in my neighborhood aren't free, go figure?

I don't have a trampoline. Walking with my dogs, hopping over creeks, logs, etc...
