Lymph nodes revisited
« on: January 22, 2014, 06:32:06 PM »
SO. i posted on here around this time last year about lymph nodes i can feel in various places, neck armpits groin. its worth mentioning that these nodes have not grown in the year and a bit ive been monitoring, and i have no symptoms of lymphoma. first doctor i asked about them was like what? no they arent even swollen. alright. i  accepted that for about a month. then began to freak out again. i dealt with it for about a year. just poking them unmercifully. i went to the dentist a few months ago, and i had him feel them too. he said "he didnt feel anything out of the ordinary." accepted that for a few days, anxiety kicks in. i FINALLY made an appointment with my GP, had him feel all of them. He too says they arent swollen. i had also become obsessed with the fact that my spleen was enlarged, i was SO sure it was. turns out its not. i was there not even 2 hours ago and already im driving myself nuts with what if's! "what if he missed something?" "what if he missed the one im worried about most?" i dont know why i cant accept the fact that 2 doctors and a dentist cant find anything. i need help.

thank you. i am trying so hard to stop touching and forget about it. dont know why i cant let go. i feel like i have a close relationship with that fear and when it goes away i wont know what to do with myself. how horribly sad the psychological aspect of hypochondria is :(
