What causes swollen lymph glands on neck?

Yes. I have had swollen lymph glands in my neck for four months now. I was diagnosed with the whooping cough in September. I feel very fatigued most of the time but have continued to work. I am 50 years old diagnosed with RA when I was 40. I am med free due to a green and clean diet and generally active hiking about one hour daily.

Thanks for your query. I have gone through your query.
The swollen lymphnodes can be because of any infection in the head and neck region. Even in RA, you can have swollen lymph nodes. So consult a general physician and oral physician and get it evaluated. If it is because of the infection in the head and neck region you need to get it treated.
I hope i have answered your query. Take care.
