lymph node enlargement

In the last 9 months my 11yr old son has had 3 bouts of enlarged lymph nodes. Twice the abdominal lymph nodes and once the one in neck. This last bout was in the stomach with so much pain he could not be in a sitting position. I had him to ER 3 times in two days they said CT scan only showed mesenteric adenitis and said blood counts were all normal. So, therefore they only treated him with pain meds (lortabs). The time before was in the neck and face where he looked like he had mumps, They tested for flu and mono at that time said all negative.
Any ideas as to what might be causing this.

There may be a low range infection causing this in your son. Do the lymph nodes go down after a few weeks?
