I am 6 weeks pregnant, and my lymph nodes are so darn swollen my whole neck hurts. Has anyone else been through this? Is it fairly common? Any advice on how to find relief?

Hi Michelle, I had a problem with swollen lymph nodes when I was about 14 weeks (I am now 22 weeks). I had a painful swelling in front of my right ear, and then a few days later there was one behind the ear. It made the whole side of my head hurt, and I could not figure out what caused it. My doctor even gave me antibiotics, and they did not help. They suggested warm compresses, which might help you. Mine went away on their own after about 2 weeks, but I still wonder what caused it. Maybe the fact that your immune system is slightly compromised during pregnancy. Good luck!

I had the same problem earlier in my pregnancy. I can't remember, I think I was around 3-4 months. Anyways, I wasn't too swollen, but it was VERY painful. My neck hurt really bad. I was worried about toxoplasmosis, so I called my doctors office after several days and the nurse I talked to acted like I was insane and asked me if I had been stressed lately! I wanted to say duh!! Does anyone live without stress anymore? Anyways, I'm not sure what it was. After a few weeks it went away. I talked to my sister in law later on and she said she had the same problem with her third pregnancy. I hope you feel better.

Thanks ladies! I feel a little better about it now. I was a little alarmed at first, but it sounds like maybe it is something a lot of women go through. I go in for my first ultrasound today, so I'm going to talk to her about the lymph nodes, too...... and the "morning" sickness that kicks my b___t morning, noon, and night! LOL
