Hi,
I'm really worried about this. It all started with a really bad case of tonsilltus (sp?) where both tonsils swelled and were really painful. Took antibiotics for it and it went away. A month later it returned so I took more antibiotics.

Since then my right tonsil and lymph node (the one below the jawline) has been swollen. Neither are painful. Also my sublingular gland has swollen (this swelled a year before any of the others and hasn't changed size, it too is painless).

I've also found a weird long lump in my lower stomach near my hipbone (the left side) it too is painless and can be moved about.

Over the past month I've been experiencing a very bad outbreak of unclers and cankersores in all areas of my mouth. My gums are sore, espically the lower ones near the floor of the mouth.

Went to the doctor and he gave me antispectic mouth wash and inflammtory pills (why I have no idea! I live in Spain and the docs are kind of crappy out here.)

I do think its any infection as there are no signs of fever. I have been tested for major STDs before and due to being English we have jabs to TB when we are in highschool. I'm 21 don't smoke, I drink in moderation and i'm a vegaterian.

Does anyone else think this is abnormal? I am going back to the doctors in a week.

Many thanks

Amy

  • OK,I went to a different doctor this time and found her much more helpful. She checked to see if any other lymph nodes where englarged in my neck, armpits, and groin area. She then ordered a blood test and an x-rey of the chest, to which both came back clean. However, due to having the weird lump in my lower stomach for such a long time (4 nearly 5 months now I forgot to mention how long in the post above) she's made an appoinment for me with internal medicine, where they'll do further tests to see what's causing the swelling. So now I have to wait two weeks.
