I'm am desperate, I have posted recently about general itchiness all over my body, that was over 7 weeks ago. then my lymph node under my ear swelled, its a hard inch about a inch and half big and now theres a large swelling at the base of my neck near my collar bone, its like a couple of inches big and tender and soft, but not very sore.

And this morning i've woken up with what feels like vertigo, i can barely walk in a straight line, i went to the doctor and told her my new symptoms, escpecially the lymph node in my shoulder but she didn't even examine me. She told me to go home and wait it out, that it was probably a virus. But this is nearly 8 weeks and I'm feeling really ill, my bones ache, I am exhausted but I've had no cold or sore throat.

Surely "just wait and see" can't be good, I need to be able to walk around, I need to be able to get on with my life, and the doctor is just turning a blind eye. Someone must have had symptoms like this or know what this could be. Please someone help.
