Lymph nodes

"Okay: so as far as my illness stuff is concerned heres what i know. The lymph nodes in my neck are pretty swollen. However all my vitals and cbc counts are good. My TSH level is health and I dont have any liver issues or mono. From what Ive read, I should tak e it easy and rest. If my symptoms dont improve in 2 weeks I'll need to get another checkup cuz it could be something more. In the case that it is serious it hasnt become serious yet. If you have any tips I could use it cuz my neck feels like its on fire. (stayin positive :)"

"ive had a severe increase in migraines too. most i would get was 3 a month now its 8 a month."

"Why would anyone want to fake throwing up and be in tremendous pain? i dont even care if it doesnt show up in labs i dont ever like feeling that sick and really dont wish it on anyone."

Obviously you are not crazy, have you been tested for HTLV?

Best wishes.
