It is likely that your sore throat and swollen lymph nodes on the neck are one problem and the stomach ache is another problem. It doesn’t seem likely that they are somehow connected. If your sore throat and swollen lymph nodes exists for a long time you can request a microbiological examination of throat and nose samples to identify if there is an infective agent causing your throat symptoms. A standard blood analyses (blood count, sedimentation, CRP, ASO etc.) can be also requested.

If there is nothing wrong with your stomach you might have IBS; there are also certain other disorders that need to be ruled out first.
