Swollen lymph nodes. We mention this symptom before, and it is one of the last stages of laryngitis. Your swollen lymph nodes and other neck areas point that laryngitis is on its way to cause even more problems. Your lymph nodes are linked with armpits and groin areas. Those two points can also start swelling. And problems in those areas are a direct signal that you have laryngitis. Also, those areas will suffer not just from swollen but also from pain. You can also touch your lymph nodes and feel that they are warmer than usual.
