I am 52, female, have chronic pain from spine - nerve damage by surgery - and hands hurt. I tend to get lightheaded. (I have Hypertension - on Hdchlorz/Potass.I drink water and eat fruit every day.) A few days ago I was seen for some NEW- 8week old underarm lumps - Doc thinks they are "lymph nodes" maybe enlarged, not to worry. I told her I have been very nauseated for three weeks and it is getting worse. No response from her. This year I began having occassional 'nerve' freakouts I call them - where my body cannot relax, my head and neck get intensely stiff. I have intolerance for being cold - I get out of control shakes. Either that or I get intermittent overheating that weakens me badly and I sweat. I am sleeping 9-10 hours a night. My friend thinks my stomach muscle seems hard and is protruding.
Any ideas as to what I should be looking at?
