So, I'm 18 and I've had mono for a little over two months now. What had originally made me want to get checked out was I had felt this hard lump under my skin on my neck. There are a total of three and I'll try to explain it the best I can. The first one is on my left side, about an inch away from my earlobe. It's maybe 2/3 the size of a golf ball, completely round, hard and immobile. The second on is on my nape, right under my skull and maybe just barely to the left of my nape, same shape, size, hardness and immobile as well. The last one is in the same position as the one on my left side, except it's on the right. An inch away from my earlobe, immobile, hard, etc. I first thought it was the C1 or C2 vertabra but I'm not even sure at this point. All three of them are evenly spaced out with each other and only seem to feel sore if I mess with them too much. Does anyone have any idea as to what these could be? I have one normal sized swollen lymph node lower on my neck as well as fatigue but those are pretty much my only symptoms at the moment, aside from some muscle twitching (possibly from the fatigue?). Can anyone help me with this?
Here's a full list of my symptoms. Keep in mind that I also have a cold on top of all of this so some symptoms may be from that.
Swollen lymph nodes
Pins and needles only in fingers (mainly on my right hand)
Increased acne around the back of my neck under skull (have been diagnosed with cystic acne)
The lumps that I had mentioned
Muscle twitches (just twitches, not spasms. Just in my fingers, hands, arms, legs and feet)
Thank you in advance to anyone who replies! My hypochondria is terrible and doesn't really let me rest when all of this is going on.
