hi, i am 18 years old and am told to have three lymph nodes on my neck (all painless). i was prescribed antibiotics that i was told to take for 10 days, but so far, my lymph nodes are still there. i have been doing research on my symptoms and have been getting scary results on cancer.

my symptoms as of late include: reduced sweating (i sweat only a little at night time), unexplained fatigue, feeling dizzy, slower bowel movements (accompanied by a softer, clustered, stool), chills, NO FEVERS, chest tightness, difficulty concentrating/impaired memory.

around march, i started getting waves of unexplained fatigue but ignored it. in may, i developed the lymph node under my chin. my doctor told me that my bloodwork was fine, and told me that the lymph nodes were not an infection from mono - which scared me. she told me to continue my antibiotics, but so far, i've gotten worse.

could my symptoms be the side effects from the antibiotics? i got worse after taking them. what should i do? i'm scared...

  • Being scared is understandable. You best bet is first, go to another doctor and explain what you are doing. Bring along your pills and everything associated. This will give you a second frame of reference and if its on your head alot, as it would be mine, express your thoughts on what you may think it is. When it doubt, go. More experience is good and ask for tests relating to cancer research just to get that out of the way. Hopefully you are just experiencing the symptoms cause of the medication and because you are looking for them. I wish you the best of luck.Be sure to search out the effects of your medicine as well to see if the effects match.
