Hello all. I have posted in a couple of the other forums, but after reading here thought i might get some advice. I am a 34 yr old female living in the uk + my problem started in June 07, when i found just 1 small hard fixed lump behind my right ear. My dentist recomended i c my doc, which i did in Aug + she told me it was a lymph node + that i also had them in my groin. Went to haem in nov + they admitted me 4 tests. CT scan-normal, bloods-normal, biopsy of right groin node-reactive. last infection i had was in May 06 + my CRP levels r perfect, so no infection there. Currently being shoved from pillar 2 post it seems. Dermatology 4 livido reticularis(purple skin mottle) and eruptive rash, he thinks lupus is poss. Gastro 4 loose bowels + weight loss(21 pounds so far). While all this has been going on lymph nodes have popped up all over the place. Neck, armpits, groin, behind knees + left wrist. I ache all over, particularly neck + back, am mildly anemic, soooooo tired, have temp swings, get very hot in bed tho only sweat bad occ. Haem have recently virtually accused me of being anorexic, but i eat loads 2 try + keep my weight up. They say i have nothing 2 worry about cos apart from groin nodes which are really visible, other nodes only measure about 1cm. Thing is a new one appears, grows to about 1cm, stops growing then another pops up. Also started gettin a red pinprick rash on both legs + lower abdomen. Sorry this is so long but am worried that summat is very wrong. Haven't been able 2 work since Nov cos i feel sooo ill but no-one seems 2b listening to me and i dont no which way 2 turn anymore :(
