my glands are also swallen on both sides of my groin and my armpits do ache but no obvious lumps. i really do not know if this has got anything to do with behind my knee also being in pain and there feels like swelling behind my knee also.
my muscles do ache but nothing to cry about , its just dont feel right.
ive been to my doc and they also put me on antibiotic and added you have an infection somewhere well i dont feel like i have an infection but you cant really argue with the doctor can you anyway ive finished the course and still there is swelling .
i dont feel sick just a bit tired sometimes.
im so woried it may be cancer and have no one to speak to this about . im going back to the docs tomorrow as this cant be write .
I'm 31 years old and 4 months ago I started feeling bad, and felt the lymph nodes in my neck swollen, I though I was catching a cold or something. But after a few days the doc. told me it might be an infection (throat) so he put me on antibiotics, after a weeks I was feeling just the same, so he thought that those antibiotics were not working for this (supposedly) infection so he change it for another kind of antibiotics. 2 weeks later my symptoms were even worse so decided to go to another doc, she did a culture of my throat and found strep so more antibiotics for almost 3 weeks.
After that I was still feeling bad but the doctor said the infection was gone, and that it was a matter of time for my lymph nodes to go back to normal.
A few weeks later a node in my armpit got swollen and also one in my groin. My gynecologist said it was because I was PMSing... long story short it's been 4 months and now I have swollen lymph nodes in my neck, armpits and groin.
Sometimes they're painful, sometimes just a few of them and sometimes they're painless. Sometimes they're small and hard, and other they're soft and they can move around easily. I too search for symptoms of lymphoma, and I think these are not symptoms of cancer.
Since my blood test were coming out fine, 2 months ago I decided to try a different approach I went to see Dr. Ann Boroch in LA, she's been great she put me on a detox diet (because of all the antibiotics) and also gave me some supplements and teas. It has helped a lot with the symptoms, I don't feel so bad, but I'm still getting more swollen lymph nodes.
I've been freaking out so much, I've spent sleepless nights and sometimes I feel like I'm having anxiety attacks.
My lastest tests showed a lot of allergens in my blood (if that makes any sense) so the doctor said that could be one cause, but she also said I should be tested for Lyme Disease and Lymphoma (finally)
I'll be going tomorrow morning.
I'm still hoping is not cancer.
Also I've done a lot of research on the internet (thank God for it) over something Dr. Ann Boroch told me: Multiple Chemical Sensitivities. It sounds interesting and I've already made and appointment with a doctor on Environmental Medicine here in San Diego and I'm having my house tested for allergens, chemical gases, mold, bacteria.
I would like to hear from you and maybe try to find a way to go through this together.
I've been reading your posts as I have the same symptoms. I was just wondering if there are any updates on your situations? Did your various doc visits reveal anything? Im worried sick.
Iv had them now for 3 weeks.
Im not really sure what they are.The dostor only knew about the ones on my neck.This morning i found the ones in the groin area and the one in my armpit. Im going to try and call the doctor today and tell him that i have found others.
Please if you have any information,please tell.
I am extremely worried as i feel like there is something terribly wrong. All i can do is live in hope until my blood results come in but i am hoping that there is someone out there that might have some idea as to what is going on with my body.
It all started with a red, pimple-like lump on the side of my arm. When I went to my doctor, he put me on antibiotics for about 1-2 weeks. I went to another doctor, and he did the same. I've had ultrasounds and they all show swollen lymphs.
I went back on antibiotics and everything seemed to get better until the red lump appeared again. And now the lymph node under my armpit is swollen and painful. I'm pretty sure the infection is making my lymph nodes swell, but once it disappears, it comes back again!
A few days ago, I was put back on antibiotics... >:(
I'm going to get a blood test in two days. Hopefully they'll figure something out because I'm worried crazy!
I find it interesting that so many of us are so young who are posting these similar issues. I have had recurrent swellings under my arms for several years now. My blood tests always come back normal as well. It's usually under my left arm, but sometimes under the right. Sometimes they form in clusters, with some bigger than others. When they get quite large is when they become painful. I found out I had some food allergies back in April. Due to ongoing problems with absent periods, acne, joint pain, mood swings, dry skin, chemical sensitivity, etc., my doctor recommended I have my hormones tested as well. I'm only 25. The results were astonishing. I have some major hormonal imbalances. I'm currently using progesterone cream and whole food supplements to support female organs, adrenals, and thyroid. My doc says the food allergies and chemical sensitivity is tied in with the hormonal imbalance. At first I was scared like many of you that my swollen lymph could be cancer-related. But I'm thinking they may be related to chemical sensitivity. They just recently flared up again after moving into a house with new paint/ carpet. I'm praying the treatment I'm on now will work. I'm continuing to look into the swollen lymph and chemical sensitivity connection. I hope you all find answers for your health questions!
Hoping and Praying
but mine have happened in the matter of 5 days..
ive had about 3 months of a blocked nose. started right after i gave up smoking after about 2 ana half years.
about to weeks ago i noticed a small pea sized lump just on the edge of my rectom
then now 3 months later with still a blocked nose i have developed painfull and swollen lymph nodes exspecially the one behind my right ear..feels hmm kinda rubbery but quite densense inside it..it feels like its attached to a bone in my neck to.
the next day i felt as if i had the sweats an that night developed a realy intense neck pain
took my temperature an it read 36.6 degrees celcius..which is fairly normal i think.

i go to the doctors an he doesn't tell me much just prescibes me parecetemol and ibuprofen for the sore muscles plus some other anti skin infection stuff for my right elbowey area around the part of your arm that you can easily see when you raise ur arm.
ibuprofen was deffinantly helping the pain until i went to bed then my neck an lower back really started hurting but i couldnt take anymore because they were at the other place i sometimes stay. but i drifted to sleep pretty quickly..
i woke up today 'thursday' feeling quite good..just a slight pain in my shoulders and lowerback.
