I have been sick pretty much nonstop since July, 06. I thought it was cold or bronchittis, but have been through tests for Lymphoma (which still has not been rulled out completely). I had a biopsy of a lymphnode in my neck and it was inconclusive, but was sent to oncologist who could not confirm or deny diagnosis. In mean time, was having horrible coughing fits and have been to the ER several times to get relief. My lungs are perfectly clear. I have had numerous CT scans and a PET scan and some lymph nodes are still inflamed. I have been going to a pulmonary specialist who did a CT scan of my nasal area and I have severe swelling in my nasal passages. Now, when I am no on prednisone I cough really bad, but now I am SNEEZING horribly. I have probably sneezed about 150 times today, my nose is stuffed up and my eyes are wattering.

I could go on and on - but wanting to know if anyone has had anything like this.
I am scheduled to go to the ENT on Tuesday. But I am miserable NOW.

  • My friend's daughter had some of your symptoms and was hospitalized for a few weeks. They finally discovered it was a bacterial infection....
