Swollen lymph glands in the neck is a sign that your lymphatic system is busy working to rid your body of whatever is causing inflammation in that part of the body. Swollen lymph glands in the head and neck area as described by you are normally cause by something like an ear infection. It could also be that you have a throat infection – there is a tiny tube that links the throat and ears and it is possible that a throat infection may also cause ear pain in both ears. Get yourself some over-the-counter medication from your local pharmacist - if the problem does not resolve within 10 days, make sure to visit your doctor. (MCH).
