It all started about a year and a half ago when I noticed slight swelling in my neck before bed.By the time I awoke that morning i had a huge ball next to my ear, under my jaw and in my armpit combined with excessive sweating,rash across my forehead, neck pain,migraines and seeing spots. I went to my doctors who immediately sent me to the hospital for further examination. I was put through a c scan lots,multiple drugs,blood tests, and lots of x-rays and even surgery. After the removal of the very enlarged lymphoid under my arm the symptoms appeared to disappear. For a couple months all was well then it was back. It has continued coming and going all this time. Ive been diagnosed with cat scratch fever, Possible rabies, mumps and many other ailments that have all failed to be true. There are two things that make it even wierder my sister has the same thing and it only occurs on the right side of our bodies. It tends to reoccur at the ending of my menstrual cycle, but im not sure if that has any meaning.I do have a low B-12 count and I'm on a glueten free diet but that was just recently started. The last bout of this began last monday and is still causing trouble and pain for me. Please help, my new doctor is willing to do anything, but she really is unsure as to what it is. Thanks Kim
