They are the same thing. The other things you may be feeling there are saliva glands (parotid etc) which may become sore and swollen from a bacterial infection if the pathway(s) become clogged. The term "lymph nodes" and "glands" are used interchangeably by many people. You will hear someone refer to having "swollen glands" when they catch a cold right?, These are in fact swollen and reactive lymph nodes which swell and become sore when they fill with white blood cells as part of an immune response to a pathogen of some sort.

Lymph nodes are not glands – that is the biggest difference. As far as what you feel it doesn’t really matter, if you don’t feel well see a doctor, if you feel okay leave them alone.
