I looked it up online, and one of the reasons/causes for it is an infection in the body (which is pretty much what the candida overgrowth is, right?).
That would be an example of my immune system being taxed huh…
The lymph organs are very closely tied to the immune system, you can see this when you consider what these organs include, that being: spleen, bone marrow, and thymus. If you read my post earlier today, you may remember that all three of these were named as being part of the immune system.
Kirsty, I’m afraid your immune system is always taxed when you have a body infestation of Candida albicans.
It isn’t that unusual for sufferers of Candida to have swollen lymph nodes, this is especially true if you’ve had thrush.
