Hello! I first wanted to say I'm not posting because I think I Have lymphoma, I am posting because I want to know if anyone has gone through this...and before someone can say ask a doctor I am.
I'm making my appt a week from now when I can get off of work. I posted this in another board belonging to healthboards, but sadly no one wrote back.
For awhile now I've been searching for answers to my fatigue, my joint pain, and a list of other symptoms to no avail. It's very frustrating, so I am not new to the mystery medical issues. In fact, I almost put off going to the doctors regarding my growing lymph nodes because I am worried I'll just get brushed off, but I know I can't delay this.
I first noticed my lymph nodes over 2 months ago by accident. I was rubbing my neck when I found a small pea sized lump. I then found another. Over the course of two months those two small lymph nodes (lower neck) have grown. I have find them easily, and grab them with my fingers. They feel hard, and maybe rubbery. I found 3 more towards the middle back of my neck that are close together. The only other new symptoms that have showed up with these lymph nodes is increased fatigue (worse than before) waking up frequently/feeling over heated. There are times I feel so hot I have to undress, or crank up the air. I also get really itchy (not all the time) but when I do I tend to scratch so hard that I break skin and it bleeds underneath. (skin turns red like a bruise) has anybody else gone through something similar to this? I'm completely baffled and am hoping my doctor just doesn't brush this off. <--- I have always liked my doctor but at my last visit he kind of brushed me off and it just make me iffy to go back. So, hopefully I won't have that experience again. Thank you.
Just looking for someone to talk to, or listen. Again, thank you.
