lymph nodes that are swollen but not painful + other symptoms

6 months ago: I started having frequent night sweats. My mom says sometimes she walks in and it looks like someone dumped a bucket of water on me. I've never had night sweats before, now for the past 6 or so months i have them at least 5 out of 7 nights.

4 months ago: mild back pain, mostly in my back in the bones but some times my thigh bones and shoulder bones hurt as well. Also coupled with joint pain (knees & shoulders).

3 months ago: extreme drowsiness and fatigue. I usually sleep between 8-12 hours at night and then usually have a 2 hour nap during the day and I STILL feel extremely run down. I just don't have any energy.

2 months: light itching and tingling all over the body but w/ no rash or skin issues. Frequent shortness of breath.

about two weeks ago: decreased appetite. I can go about fourteen to twenty hours without being hungry. I find myself eating small portions as well. How much I eat food and the amount of food I need to feel full has decreased. Also there is slight nausea after I eat. Also I developed a sensitivity to cold; violent chills. I always have layers on.

about a week ago: frequent light headedness. I often feel very "spacey" as if there's a fog covering my brain. Almost lateral to the feeling of being in a daydream 24/7. also my glands in my neck and armpits have gone hard but not tender. +abdominal pain just below the rib cage +small fevers (99.5-100.0).


I'm seventeen just so that you have that information. I also have a history of migraines due to a slightly enlarged pituitary gland. But that was nothing too alarming for my doctor and the migraines have sinced cleared up on their own. During that time I was on tylenol 3 to treat the migraines and topamax to prevent them. I don't know if that's relevent or not.

I am concerned because my great aunt (blood related through my father) had NHL and died from it in '03.

Re: lymph nodes that are swollen but not painful + other symptoms

Have you been to the doctor? With your symptoms it could be something, or it could be nothing. But they can do a blood test first off and that will give you an idea. If the nodes have been enlarged for 4-6 weeks it is usually a sign that it's not something viral. But either way, best to get it checked!

I've been to my doctor for lymph nodes before and they're always interested, even if it's nothing. Good luck!!

Melrose did you ever find out what you had? Was it just an infection? I was kinda concerned with all your symptoms as I'm a HL survivor and was kinda worried about you. I hope all is well

Re: lymph nodes that are swollen but not painful + other symptoms

I've been dealing with almost identical symptoms thing for the last while too. Over a similar time-line as well.
My doc has recommended a biopsy of one of my enlarged nodes, may be something worth investigating!
I really feel your pain on this, it can be frustrating, especially when no-one can tell you quite what the problem is!

Keep battling through the brain fog, I'm doing the same!!
Good luck!!
