Hi I recently noticed by lymph node on the left side of my neck began to swell and pain 2 days ago and it hasn't gone down. I also have been having chronic diarrhea for almost 2 days with a mild headache, night sweats, and congestion. Could this be a sign of a flu or illness? And should I be worried?
