Pain in the neck

I've had this lymph node in my neck for more than a month now. Crazy.  Unacceptable.  Seriously, it's a big pain in the neck.  I've now resorted to using heat packs to get the swelling down.  I got it worked up today and am now on antibiotics.  Let's hope that helps (I'm for the judicious use of antibiotics and all - but now this is turning ridiculous). 

In the meantime, I just saw the Feist album cover (above) and it reminded me of my predicament.

Don't we all have lymph nodes in our necks?

True dat. But usually they're small and non-bothersome. They become an issue when they become large and hurt, as mine have. Ah, but then again, I'm a known hypochondriac, so it's probably nothing.
Update: my lab test was completely normal. I can breathe a sigh of relief.
