What could be causing the extreme pains in my lymph nodes under my neck and tingling the in head? Should I see a doctor in person? I had a sinus infection a month ago when the neck pains suddenly appeared. I was given antibiotics. It got rid of my other sinus symptoms, but not the lymph node pain. Recently, I was found to have an abscessed wisdom tooth and an abscessed crowned tooth. I had both pulled and was given Clindamycin for 10 days. Still, I have neck pains.I have been on a ton of antibiotics so not sure if bacteria are even responsive anymore. Should I be concerned about meningitis or that the infection has spread to lymph nodes? It has been about a month or two that neck pain has continued. Would blood work or an ultrasound be a better way to see what is going on? Is there anything I can do to treat this at home?
