Beginning of December I came down with a cough and cold which lasted until first week of Jan. Just as the cough was going I noticed a lump on my chest, left side, between my collarbone and top of breast. Its hard, painless and doesn't move. I also started to get some breathing difficulties at this point too, struggling to take a deep breath, being very out of breath doing just basic things. With the breathing issues Ive also chest pains, sharp pains that come and go, twinges and just a general feeling of tight and heavy chest.
I went to the GP who listened to my chest and said it was clear and advised to carry on as usual and to come back if my breathing didn't improve when the cough goes. I mentioned the lump but she didn't look at it.
10 days later I return after the cough going and still feeling out of breath. Listened to chest and done obs again, all came back fine so was told to leave it until Friday, this was Monday, and again if still feeling same go back. This visit the GP did take a look at the lump and told me I was part of my body?!! Even thou know it isn't and did say this to her at the time.
So back again on the Friday with the same complaints, at this point another lump had come up, about an inch above the first. When she felt both lumps this visit she then admitted they were lumps and she was wrong before about it being part of my body. She didn't have any answers as to what the lumps were. She gave me antibiotics and said as I still couldn't breath properly she'll treat it as a chest infection, even tho she did say my chest sounded clear!
The antibiotics finished on Friday and I still feel the same, still struggling to catch my breath, still got the lumps there. I also have been getting terrible headaches and just generally feeling unwell, achy joints, neck and shoulder ache (mainly on left side, same side as lumps), very tired, no appetite, feeling shaky.
Can anyone else relate? Whenever I search the symptoms it brings up lymphoma.
Needless to say ill be going back to the GP tomorrow.
Sorry for the long post!
