Okay, everyone, I've never posted on a message board but I just don't know what else to do. About a week ago I woke up deaf. Went to the ER and they cleaned my ears out, but still was deaf in the left ear. I just accepted that I lost my hearing unable to afford a doctor right now til March - then yesterday my left knee started having trouble straightening and hurt like heck when I tried to walk. I thought, arthritis (I'm 33 and have always had bad knees.) Then earlier today I glanced down at my left hand and noticed "nodules" on the last joints on my fingers - small, red bumps that are not painful. And now I have a swollen lymph node on my right underarm -it is very painful and quite large. I'm starting to lose my mind - everything but the lymph node lump is on my left side and I just figured maybe it was stress... but now the lump on the underarm is starting to make me wonder if there is something wrong with me. I've tried researching these combination of symptoms and are coming up with nothing. I sure don't want to go back to the ER to be told its all in my head. Any thoughts? thank you in advance!:confused:
