    Lymphoma or not.................

    Hi everyone. I am 31 and have been battling whatever is going in my body for 6 months now. I am small framed 5'0 and weighed towards end of Dec first of Jan about 95-96 pounds. Since then I am down to 89/90 pds. My glands are swollen in my neck on both sides. I had a ct scan in March that showed small scattered lymph nodes through my neck and it was deemed as "probably" bengin.

    My blood work did not show much other than my red count being low and my absolute nutrophills being low. I went last week to see my thyroid specalist and she did an ultra sound. It showed the same thing as the ct scan, small lymph nodes in my neck. She felt under my arms and found them there. She suggested a bioposy to be done. I am waiting on that in the next few weeks.

    I was wondering if anyone else has any of the same syptoms?
    lost weight, itchy skin (bendrly doesn't help), swollen glands, very tired and worn out feeling, i get sick to my stomach sometimes, and bloated.

    Any help or directions would be greatly appreciated.

    Pretty much having the same symptoms as you - have you had any diagnosis yet? After going to some stupid specialists - one who said I had to lose weight and excersise and will feel better. My main health dr has me seeing a surgeon this thursday for a biopsy consultation. My blook work is also showing something going on.
