I've been posting on here for some time, just to get some kind of responses. I'm getting a little scared now.
I've been sick with non-specific symptoms for a couple of years now...nausea, vomiting, on and off low-grade fevers, body aches, joint pain, fatigue, nosebleeds, heavy menstrual bleeding, GI bleeding, jaundice, anemia , and night sweats.
I've read that the night sweats may be the key symptom for figuring out what's wrong, since they shouldn't be happening so much...they're chronic, been going on for almost 6 months now, absolutely DRENCHING my clothes and sheets. I've had a negative TB skin test. I also have had a swollen gland in the right side of my neck that once swelled to over an inch and was very hard. Now, I notice, there is a lump, like a rock, behind my jaw, near my ear. I have to slightly adjust my head to feel it, but its definitely there, and hasn't always been. It also isn't there on the other side. It doesn't move. I have had negative GI tests for UC and ulcers, negative for pancreatitis, and everything else my doc has suspected. The night sweats are so bad that they are waking me up several times a night. Should I be worried? When I got tested for TB the other day, I asked the urgent care doc if she could reccomend anything to reduce the night sweats. She said we'd better figure out the cause, instead.
What could it be?
