Hi everyone, I am new to the site. I am wondering whether someone can share an opinion about my problem.
For around 6 months I have had painful lymph nodes - neck, under the arms and groin. It comes and goes but lately it is there more often than not. Sometimes it feels like a sharp pinch, but more often it is a nagging ache. It's worst in the groin and often throbs when I am trying to get to sleep.
The only other symptom I have is tiredness. I don't have night sweats, or weight loss.
I've had 2 blood tests so far, full blood work and nothing abnormal has come up. I've also been tested for HIV and that was negative.
My doctor doesn't seem to know what to do next or which specialist to send me to. I know my symptoms might be consistent with lymphoma but that has other symptoms too.
It is more irritating than debilitating but I can't help but think it is not normal and wonder what is causing it.
I'm otherwise healthy except that I have endometriosis, diagnosed 3 years ago. I have some lower abdominal pain but I don't know whether that is from the endometriosis or something else.
Anyway thanks for reading
