I recently noticed that the lymph node on the left side of my neck began to swell, and there is pain for the past two days, and it has not subsided. I also have chronic diarrhea for almost two days with a mild headache, night sweats, and congestion. Could this be a sign of flu or illness? Should I be worried?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
There is absolutely nothing that you need to worry about. Diarrhea with headache and congestion could be due to acute viral gastroenteritis. There could be an anaerobic infection as well. I suggest the following treatment plan:
The lymph node in the neck could be due to reactionary hypertrophy to the current viremia and infection. Your symptoms should come down in a week, failing which it is always adviced to get yourself examined by a physician.
I hope I have answered your query in detail. If there is anything more that you need to know, please do let me know, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
