Welcome to the boards!! I'm so sorry you're going through this, and in my opinion, I'd have it seen about ASAP! It may be nothing more than a swollen lymph node, but it could be something that needs attention. Never hurts to get it checked out. I'll be praying for you! Please keep us posted...
Thank you for the welcome! I am happy to be here.
I called the Dr. on call, and here is what he said, he said "Doesnt sound like anything that I would really worry about, if it's still there on Monday, go in and see your Dr.". Then he said, if you start having other symptoms, like Neurologic issues, Vomitting, Fever, or Drainage - then go to the ER or re-contact him again.
He thinks too, that it's a "clogged up" lymph node, from an infection in my body (as I am suffering with a common cold right now).
But, for whatever reason - I am a paranoid one, when it comes to these kinds of issues, and I have a hard time taking "You're OK" as an answer.
It's starting to become "itchy" in a way. My DH says that means it's healing.
I think that's a wise tail?
The other thing I think is............. since it came on SO SUDDEN, like literally OVERNIGHT. That it can't be anything too dangerous? As like cancer, gradually grows, etc. Don't you agree?
I will keep you posted for sure! Thanks for replying!
Do you ever go to the Chiropractor? I get what sounds like what you have when my neck is out of place and needs to be adjusted. I asked the chiro about it once because I was concerned also because it hurt. He feels for those "lumps" whenever he works on my neck.
It "could" be a cyst(boil, or what ever you may call it)? I have had them in various locations, and when they are going to "come to a head" they DO get itchy, but extreamly painful! OR on another note, could be a bite of some sort, "spider", or other critter?? Is It Red and raised, I know you cant see it, but maybe someone to look at it, that would tell you if its something on the outside, being a cyst or bite, or inside being a lymph node.
I hope you have found some relief by now, since posting.
Good luck, God bless,
