Hi, I have been having problems with swollen glands for over 9 years. The doctors recommended a tonsillectemy which I had over a year ago. However, I am still having the same problems. I feel like my face is swollen all over but especially under my eyes and chin. And my cheeks feel like there burning up but im not sick. When im swollen I lose my appetite but still apear overweight even tho I eat very well. I get very sweaty but always cold. My sweat has a very specific sweet smell unlike usual sweat. I get muscle spasms and pain in my legs, sore throats, extreme tiredness, bladder weakness, pressure headaches due to the swelling, insomnia and hormone fluctuations. Yet my doctor refuses to pay any attention since I was diagnosed with ME in 2000. But I am convinced theres more too it but I dont know what is wrong with me. No one will listen and the swelling is driving me crazy. Please can anyone help me?
