I have been anxious and worried about possible medical issues since I first noticed a lump on my jaw that wouldn't go away.  Since then, I've had an impossible time first trying to get a doctor to look at me at all, and second, getting any answers, which hasn't helped the anxiety, as well as long waits for specialists.  And every new symptom I find I get nervous wondering whether it is related to the lymph node and a sign of something worse, or whether it's completely unrelated.

When doctors can't provide answers, every new symptom is a possible link to finding out what caused the first issue in the first place, but I know my doctor's annoyed by my constant pushing to get answers and constantly coming in with every little thing...

I found this forum while searching for possible causes of my newest issue...I just want this all to go away.  This sounds like just the place I need to be right now.
