I am very scared that i may have lymphoma, i wanted to ask some questions on this board since you all seem very knowledgeable on this subject.
About 2 weeks ago i was at my friends house and had about 5 beers. I woke up the next morning and had pain in my neck. Sharp pains on both sides of my front neck.
This pain consisted over a week with headache, Then the pain started to move into my shoulders, my jaw, and into the back of my head.
A few days later the pain moved into my back, lower back, into my pelvis; forearms, hands, feet, legs, fingers, hips, pretty much everywhere. i have also had abdominal pain. No noticeable fever so far. Chills every now and then.
I went to the hospital about a week into the neck symptoms, and they did a CT scan of my neck and head and found " Some swollen lymph nodes ". The hospital sent these CT scans to my primary care doctor who i saw the very next day.
My primary care doctor ran some blood tests, CBC and all that. He said that my bilirubin was high ( 2.6 instead of 1.5), and that he was going to send my blood off to test it for cat scratch.
Cat scratch came back negative, sadly. So now i am going back in on monday and he wants to do an ultrasound of my liver and gallbladder, As well as more bloodwork.
I am just very scared because i started itching all over last night, And i have had mild night sweats ONCE. I have had some indigestion and yellow foamy diarrhea for about a week and a half.
Please note that i do not have any REALLY prominent lymph nodes sticking out of my skin, except for a small lump behind my right ear. ( Not sure if that is a lymph node). And my doctor said that the nodes he saw in the CT scan looked consistent with a viral syndrome.
Please give me some advice on what to expect. I am a 17 year old healthy male, and i am very scared.
Right now I am waiting for results on my blood test to see if i have celiacs. I have started itching all over. please help me.
