Exclamation Somebody Help

I need someone to help me understand whether I should be concerned. In the past year I have had sporadic night sweats (once a month), constant headaches, dizziness, vertigo etc. I started reading about night sweats and stumbled on lymphomas.
In the past 2 years I have had really wonky things happen.
I have had 2 instances of incredible foot swelling lasting about 2 weeks with no explainable cause.
I have had tenderness in the lymph nodes on my left knee that lasted about 4 months.
I have had sporadic (once every 3 months) fevers with no other symptoms.
Right now my sternum feels like somebody punched me and bruised the bone.
I had bloodwork and a chest xray done.
Bloodwork was fine.
My x-ray noted a cardiac shadow that was "approaching the above normal range."
My doc is brushing me off and saying I'm fine. I want to believe him but how can I ignore all these things I've had.
PLEASE respond and give me some insight into whether I should be concerned.
I am active and otherwise healthy.
I forgot to mention that the past month I have been waking up with incredible back pain in my lower back.
I had mono twice in my teen years.

Re: Somebody Help

Saw my doc today and he berated me and basically told me I was a hypochondriac with emotional issues- good times...I officially give up.
