For a while now, I have been waking in the night, absolutely soaked through with sweat. This is accompanied with a throbbing gland (left side, under my ear, along the jaw line). The gland has been an issue in the past, but has now become quite painful. It has started to affect my hearing in the left ear when it is enlarged. I do feel very very tired and have been to see my G.P. many many times to get this resolved. Blood tests are done, and the results come back normal. I'm told that I probably "have a virus". My HIV status was negative. My thyroid TSH was 10 - apparently thats "normal" for me and my lymphocyte test was 0.03. Again, this is "normal" for me - as its been like this for years. No one seems interested in helping me, and i'm starting to find the pain and sweating quite distressing, which is increased with the fact that I am so so very tired. Someone tell me what I should do, am I really supposed to live like this forever, as my doctor expects..?:(
