I'm new to this group..
I joined because I'm trying to get information regarding my swollen lymph nodes.
About me: I'm a healthy 30 year old mother, I don't smoke, don't do drugs (well, marijuana once in a while... Once every few months I would say) and I only drink occasionally. Im not on any medication and have no allergies to foods or products that I am aware of. No medical conditions or injuries either.
My problem is that back in February my lymph nodes on the right side of my neck were swollen big enough that you could see them. I waited a while and then went to the doctor, the doctor didn't do anything besides say "if they're still swollen in a week, come back"
I made an appointment a few weeks later, and they said "if it's still swollen in a month come back again"... Ookay then.
I went back AGAIN and this time they sent me for blood work, an ultrasound, and next is a biopsy.
It's weird because sometimes my lymph nodes are huge and hard, other times they're huge and soft and squishy and other times they're kind of small (still large enough to feel and usually see)
I didn't have mono or any kind of cold, I rarely ever get sick, haven't been overly tired, no side throats or fevers, weight loss or weight gain. My biopsy isn't scheduled for another several weeks.
So this is 6 months with huge swollen lymph nodes, it feels like a few more of them are swollen in the same area but nowhere else, just the right side of my neck.
OH!!! something important that I need to mention...
I started a diet, deciding I wanted to lose some weight. It was a no-processed-sugar diet. No bread, pasta, sweets, etc. At the same time I started running/walking nightly. By day 4 my swollen lymph nodes went away entirely. But then by day 9 or 10, keeping with the same diet/workout plan, they came back anyway.
Anyways, I have some severe anxiety issues as it is, lol. I'd rather hear "you're dying and only have 2 weeks to live" than not know what's going on lol
