Hi. I'd really appreciate some feedback on my situation, to get an insite into if what I have at the moment is normal or should be checked out further.

I have three lumps at the top of my neck, they are quite big, the size of bouncy balls. I had one to start off with after I had an elevated level of white blood cells. Its been 2 weeks and now I've got 3 lumps in my neck, the reason why I am concerned is I am always breaking out in rash, have to constantly take nausea pills when I get these hot flushes/pale episodes which leaves me very fatigued, I also have been waking up in sweat, and my legs, back and shirt will be very sweaty, and quite damp. I am always breaking out in bruises for no reason.
I went back to the doctor, who felt my neck and said that my left side of the neck felt quite firm and to come back in a month if anything has grown. I didn't feel him touching the lumps, he felt my neck and said it's normal anything less then pea sized is normal, but these arent pea sized.. so I'm confused.
Is this something to worry about? Or just move on and leave it be?
