A lot of tension in my neck, shoulder area due to stress?! Pain in groin area, not sure if it's lymphnodes or very tight muscles, can not feel any lumps but very tight and painful. Stomach cramps that feel like sharp pains as well. I have anixiety and worrying about how I feel is driving me crazy. Please help

Hi beautyofthemind,
Lymph nodes commonly enlarge as a result of an infection because they are the bodies filtering system for bacteria etc., and may not return to their pre-infectious state. Enlarged Lymph nodes may be suspicious when they, for example, are hard, fixed, continue to enlarge despite treatment with Antibiotics etc. Are you experiencing any other symptoms? Have you had a recent infection? An evaluation by your physician would identify if the enlarged Lymph nodes are suspicious in nature.
Sincerely,
Rntdj
