Hard Lump Behind Right Ear
dlink123 posted:
I have a hard Lump behind my Right Ear that does not move or hurt. It seems to also connect to a swollen spot allong the base of my skull on the same side. I have had ringing in my ears and severe lower back pain and my periods have been spiradic. In the last week I have started suffering from insomnia and hot flashes at night which are more like lust hot all over and sweating if under the blankets then have to take them off to cool's like my skin is burning. I also have noticed just since Sunday a raised place on my forehead on the left side runs from hairline down to eyebrow near my temple...not noticable to others but I know it's there. I have also had bowel changes which started several months ago and I have no idea if any of this is connected or not but it is starting to get alarming. I have an ob appointment on the 13th so guess we will start there.
