I know that there’s a lot of reasons other than cancer, and I don’t want to sound like I’m making symptoms up and making myself seem like I have cancer but I’m very worried.
Two weeks ago I started with night sweats, I would wake up so hot and thirsty, like I hadn’t drank in days. I would sleep around 8pm and then wake up at 9 ish, I wouldn’t be drenched in sweat but I’d call it a night sweat because of how hot I felt. I would wake up several times again. I went to the doctor and he wanted bloods. Two days later they came back a bit abnormal and he wanted to test my thyroid next (blood test looking for certain antibodies.)
Then a few days later i felt a hard lump in my side, painful. I had a look online and it seemed to be a lymph node. Then more appeared VERY FAST. Within a few days I had them on my groin and armpits (both sides.)
I never ever have cramps before my period so I knew that wasn’t causing the cramps I have now. The other morning I had a painful cramp/ache in the lower abdomen. I tried ibuprofen, nothing. I fell asleep finally at 3am.
Its been three days and it’s still there. This stomach ache is worse at night but overall it’s there 24/7. I can’t sleep at night, it’s 5 am and I’m very awake.
Yeaterday I went to A&E because these problems were scaring me and I genuinely thought they’d find something in my blood. Nothing. Low protein (creanitine) but he didn’t seem bothered, haematology was fine.
Now, I have extra swollen lymph nodes. My foream at the top and above my right collarbone. Also another two on my right groin (now three on each groin) I just keep finding more and more.
its scary how fast these symptoms are progressing. I don’t fancy eating, no appetite. Usually at lunch time I’m starving and excited for it, but all of a sudden that’s gone.if I don’t eat properly one day usually the next I am looking forward to food.
its bank holiday Monday tomorrow so I’ll try and get into the doctors Tuesday but I’m worried. A&E didn’t even tell me what it possibly could be, they didn’t even tell me one thing it could be.
Whenever I type this in I always get ‘non-hodgkins lymphoma’ but I’m really hoping it’s not. I just want a reason for this..:
i don’t have a fever, can’t be glandular fever. Doubt it’s mono as I don’t share any utensils and i haven’t been kissing anyone. I doubt it’s lupus as I have no rash.
I’m hoping someone could give me some advice. I know nobody can give me medical advice as such but im not sure what to do next ??
