I am a new user here and am looking for some help. I have had swollen Lympth nodes, and various other issues. Below is a list of some of these symptoms. About four months ago I started to get this pressure in my head so I seen my ENT and they did blood work and CT scans all of which came back as normal. Then about two months after this had shown up I started to get glands in my neck that were enlarged and painful..I didn't think much of it as I had a Parotid and Submandibular Salivary Gland removed by the same ENT that I seen for these other problems and thought it was related. Now I have glands throughout my body that are painful and swollen. I have been a a variety of meds including medication for a chronic back problem. These include Pennicillin V for 7 days due to an infected tooth, then Pennicillin V again for three weeks for the head pressue, Singualar then followed as well as anti virals all perscribed by my ENT. This same DR. did several CT scans and an MRI all of which came back normal. Now I am seeing an internist and he has done blood work twice now which has come back as, surprise...surprise, normal. He aslo put me on Augmentin which has done nothing.. It seems like it is getting worse and not better. Now I have the pressure in my head, swollen lymph nodes throughout my body which are painful and now feel like they are on fire, sinus pressure accross the cheeks, a low grade fever that never gets over 100 degrees, muscle weakness in my arms which I think is associated with the Lymph Nodes, I also have a few teeth that need to be pulled as I have one that is eating itself from the inside out. You would think that if this was some systemic type of infection that I would have responded to the antibiotics. I feel really bad and can't get an answers from any of the doctors, they all say that they are confused. The internist has mentioned in passing that he thinks its Dercum's Disease, but I have looked it up and it is a very rare condition that usually affects post meno-pauseal women, and is rarely seen in men well I am a man, besides the fact that this disease is fatty tumors and not Lymph nodes. Anyone have any clues??
