been having some symptoms for about 6 months now. used to have severe left sided pain in the chest and down the left arm. thought it was the heart, but echo was normal. this pain has gone in the last 8 or so weeks, so thats good. but the other symptoms are still here. i have a rash on both legs. very itchy,raised bumps. usually red,although look a little purple after showering.
very tired most of the time,sleep a lot. lost some of my apetite,and due to that have lost a bit of weight.
constant cough for 5 months at least. started with a very bad chest infection which because of an ignorant doctor, went untreated for about 3 months. was coughing up green sputum then. but that improved completely in the past few months, though i do feel it's coming back and my sputum is now green again. when there is no sputum, the cough is dry and usually worse when lying down,changing position in bed, or when running up stairs.
i found an enlarged lymph on my left side just above the collar bone. found it about 6 weeks ago and then it was about 2cm, not its less than 1cm i think. so has shrunk.
but about a week ago i think i found another lymph on the right side of my neck a little higher than the collar bone ( more on the neck ). not sure if it's a lymph or not.....
chest xray shows some sort of shadow or something on the left side. right side looks ok. the left lung did look a lot better 5 weeks ago, although there was still what i was tld might be a lymph in the chest. it was almost in the middle between the 2 lungs, but sightly more to the left.
now the new xray as shown more shadows which could be 2 other lymphs below this one, or something else....don't know.
sometimes have a slightly fast heartbeat. 108,sometmes 114.
ok. blood tests:
most of the blood test have improved although some still abnormal.
wbc was just over 33 but has gone down to 28 in a month or so.
rbc was normal at 4.89 but has gone up to 5.22
esr only tested once about a week ago and was 80
lymphocytes were 2.26 a week ago
neutrophil was just over 29 and a week ago went down to 24.

platelets were 409-5 weeks ago, and last week were 561

cretanine was 72 5 weeks ago, last week went down to 44
alk phos was 370 but went down to 163 last week
that's it as far as i know. will add any new results if i get any.
please help me figure out what it is that i have. im only young and don't want to wait till the doctors decide they have a job to do....if that ever happens....
please share your thoughts on this.
