Swollen lymph nodes that won't go away...

I have swollen lymph nodes on the right side of my neck and no where else on my body that I have noticed. I had one very large lymph node which was biopsied recently. They told me that it was consistent with cat scratch fever. I took the antibiotics yet the lymph nodes remain swollen. I have not been around cats or allergens that I am aware of. I have symptoms including general and consistent fatigue for which I take amphetamine salts. I find that no matter how much sleep I get I can barely get out of bed and never feel rested. My blood work is all normal. I had consistent joint pain and ear infections- tubes put in and removed twice- as a child, I do not know if that is relevant.

Re: Swollen lymph nodes that won't go away...

Did they test you for Epstein-Barr Virus? I was having swollen lymph nodes and my doctor checked and saw that I'd been positive for EBV on previous bloodwork (which he'd never told me about! Although I read later than most people test positive for it because it's a very common thing but most people don't know they have it because it stays dormant their whole lives). But I had the same symptoms as you that went along with the swollen lymph nodes- feeling tired all the time, fatigued, headaches... He advised me to take Vitamin B supplements, which usually help when I get a flare-up of the virus.
Good luck.
