i have had swollen lymph nodes on both sides of my neck and one on the back of my head. I have now had them for over 6months. they are painless and mobile but the one on the back of my head is firm and hard. i went to my doctor about 3 months ago and my bloodwork was fine. I had one that was faily larger then the rest on the left side of my neck but it has slowly gone down in size but now all my nodes seem to be the same size. I do feel more fatigued, i am not looseing weight nor am i getting night sweats...i don't think. The thing is i can't remeber getting an infection when my lymph nodes become evident at first. they seem like they appearded from nowhere. my doctor basically told me to wait and call back if they get larger or dont decrease in size. anyone had similar exp or know any usefull info. i am 20yrs old.
