No cough and an occasional runny nose. She has had it going on about 10 days now but not vomiting every night. She had a fever almost three weeks ago and we went to Dr and they found nothing and it went away after two days on its own. She is drinking fluids and is now wanting to eat but just not as much as she usually consumes.

Thanks for all these additional details.

Well, there is some underlying medical issue, and it has to be evaluated by doctor.

It can be due to Sinus infection or sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses).
Also, Changing weather fronts, cold temperatures, or excess dryness in the air may cause such symptoms. And Certain foods (like spicy foods can trigger mucus flow).

Allergies (called allergic postnasal drip)have to be checked by doctor.

Swollen gland on neck, can occur after a viral flu, or it can occur with underlying inflammatory condition.

She needs to have a correct diagnosis with a detailed ear, nose, and throat examination.
If there is underlying Bacterial infections, then they are treated with antibiotics. For allergic condition, she may require Antihistamines.

You should elevate the head of the bed six to eight inches, avoid foods and liquids for two to three hours before bedtime.

I would recommend, that she should be seen by Pediatrician for clinical evaluation, and get appropriate management.
