I went tubing on Wednesday, in brackish water in Texas. It hasn't been too hot lately so I wouldn't expect water temperature to be too high, it didn't feel it anyway.
I've had a headache ever since, though I had daily headaches before that as well. I found a very very small bump on the backside of my neck just above the hairline, I'm worried that this is a lymph node.
I have an insane phobia of N. Fowleri, and I'm scared that this bump is a lymph node due to infection by this amoeba. I know I'm being ridiculous I know, but I cannot settle down! It's been 72 hours since possible exposure, this is my 3rd bout with this fear and playing the waiting game. I feel as if I'll go insane if I have to wait another 10 days to see if I'm still here and well.
This thing scares me like no other, someone please help!
I have no fever, do have mild headache, I do have a stiff neck but not the kind they say it causes. Last time I had this fear, both times previously actually, I somatisized this same stiff neck feeling so I think it could be that. I don't know where to go from here... If I turn out to be okay once again, I still have a major issue on my hands and that's anxiety.
