Swollen lymph nodes

Patient: I woke up the other morning with swollen glands in my neck, and a very slight soar throat. I’ve never had strep and don’t think that is the problem but I want to know if there is anything I can do for the swollen glands. I’ve never really gotten head colds the same way most people do, they tend to affect different parts of my body, such as joints etc instead of stuffing me up. Is this something I should be worried about? or is it just a cold that I need to wait out.
