Hello and welcome to healthcare magic!!
When did you last get the test done and what test have you got a MRI
spine done?
If the chronic swelling of lymph nodes is in your neck or surrounding area and it started along with the back ache it could be due to a latent infection of TB which infects the spine and is called potts spine.
Get an MRI Spine done and consult an orthopaedician or a spinal surgeon.
