Lymphodema

I have enlarged lymph nodes on both of my inner thighs, and they burn like someone is putting a match down there and lighting it up. I went to my doctor who started me on a course of anti-biotics. Six days later, I called her to tell her that I was not feeling any better. So, she started me on a course of another anti-biotic. Since I started the new medicine the pain is not constant, but it does flair up. It really hurts.

I had two other doctors suggest that I see a general surgeon, but my primary care doctor needs to do the referal (due to insurance reasons) and she won't.

She wants me to try another week of anti-biotics. I don't know how much more pain I can take.
