Hi, I have a painful & swollen Lymph node at the back of my neck. I think this has happened because I've been blighted with cold bugs since Christmas & this has come along with the lastest bug this week. I'm concerned as I have a swollen node in my elbow which appeared last summer after my hashi meltdown. Are they connected to hashimotos? Should I be worried especially as I have them in different places? My gp isn't concerned at all & can offer no feasible explanation or relief.
