Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Enlargement of the lymph nodes is a common finding, in many individuals, undergoing investigative procedures like ultrasounds or CT scans for other reasons.

In case, the CT has found nothing other than a enlarged lymph node, then the most probable cause of your pain could be due to musculoskeletal reasons.

You might consult with your treating doctor for prescription of muscle relaxants, which may help to reduce your symptoms.
