Worried about Lymph problems

Hi

I wonder if anyone can give me any advice, for the last year I have been constantly ill with flu's and virus's, and have been diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism, I have not been reacting well to my medication and thought that this was the main cause of my tiredness and feeling under the weather all of the time, over the last 2 months though, I have had a sore throat and constant ear blockages and problems, also I keep getting pains under my left rib cage, especially after drinking. At night I have been having night sweats only on the left side of my body with sweat coming from my ear area, my left breast and under my rib cage. It also feels really fliudy, when I have wake up I would then have tingles in my arms and feet, but in the morning it would go away and I would feel OK. I have recently had a blood test, I had a slight low red blood count but the doctor said that it wasn't serious and that I should take an iron suppliment, I went to the doctor about the swelling problem too and he said that he couldn't feel any lumps and that it was probably just an infection. All this is still happening though and I feel sick with worry I don't know whether to go back again as I already went 6 times over the summer when I had a virus and the doctor kept turning me away just saying it was a viral infection, but I know that this is not right. I was wondering if there may be a blockage with my lymphatic system? Can anyone help or give me any advice. I am going to see a thyroid specialist on monday do you think I could speak to him about these other problems? Thanks.

Re: Worried about Lymph problems

Hi Daisy,
I don't have exactly same problem as you but similar. Definitely go back to doctor if you worry and ask questions!!!!
I've been to doctor from january at least 5x and 1x at urgent care centre. I have a pain in my ribs on my left side, and burning pains in my left arm (feels as swollen), left side of body (breast as well) and left groin. I feel terribly tirred and I've been on Ibuprofen for last few days and feel awfully worried.Doctor thinks it's a constipation and virus but I know it is not too so I keep comming back.I have also low red blood count as you.
Keeps fingers crossed for you. andrea
