Have swollen lymph nodes in neck, suffer insomnia, extreme tiredness, sore throat. Cure?

I have swollen lymph nodes in my neck (cervical) had ultra sound and the 2 largest nodes are just under 2 cm. biopsy came back normal. I suffer insomnia, extreme tiredness after normal activities, and recently had an itchy spot on my right shoulder blade which has now become a weird uncomfortable burning sensation. Is this all linked? Doctors just won't listen. I also noticed a pea like lump that's hard but movable on my jaw. My lymph nodes cause great dis comfort, as they are painful. This has been ongoing for many many years. I always feel run down and like I'm getting the flu, but the worst is I occasionally get a sore throat. This health issue is depressing and no one can give me answers.

ENT Specialist 's  Response
Do not get depressed as they are lymph nodes and they enlarge if there is infection in their drainage area.
Shoulder lesion may not cause it and there can be enlargement of nodes in the axilla.
If you have recurrent complaints of sore throat then you must see an ENT specialist.
Do you have nasal blockage or discharge ,do you have headaches again and again---then there can be nasal infections and sinus disease and so the infected material is trickling down the throat and the throat is getting infected again and again .n such condition after consultation you can get done CT scan of nose and sinuses to rule out the disease and get treated.
If you do not have the nasal disease then their can be reflux disease ie acidity ,heart burn --for that---
Take antacid tablets half an hour before meals
Syp. antacid gel half an hour before meals
multivitamin twice daily
Keep head end of bed elevated.
Avoid alcohol, Smoking
Do brisk walking daily
Go for walk after dinner
Avoid spicy food     
Avoid late night coffee
follow up after 7 days.
