What is going on with me? I went to Er in September 2009 for a swollen bump on my leg that was purple and red with a white head. The dr told me it was a spider bite. He lanced it, packed it, gave me clindamycin and sent me home. A month later another bump appeared, I was in bed for a week. I started reading up on the internet and took the holisitic approach turmeric and garlic compresses. Then 2 more popped up. I went back to dr. I dont have insurance you guys. And remember that trip in Sept. $4000. This dr prescribed me Augmentin. Symptoms subsided for 2 weeks. Now today I have swollen lymph nodes in my neck towards the collar bone and a boil which dried up is now swollen again. All my boils have been in the same place my inner thigh more towards my knee. No its not herpes we know this for sure I was tested. Please help. Oh as for the gradual weight loss, I used to have a nice health butt seriously its slowly disappearing my stomach is also getting flatter so i know im losing weight. I was probably 171 now im probably 160. Ive lost the few pounds in 3 weeks. Maybe nothing serious but I wanted to add all things. It might be the fact that i stopped working out thats why im losing muscle.:confused:
