. I would just simply like to know if I'm alone here.
I'm a 20 year old female and about a month ago I fell sick, runny nose, sore throat, congestion, night chills, fever, headache and really bad swollen lymph nodes. I couldnt turn my neck because of the lymph nodes. But I previously had an illness called chikungunya that is said to remain in your system after a year after the infected mosquito bite. The worst thing I did was i went on Google and searched about the flu and swollen lymph nodes.
I saw herpes,hiv, cancer. And this triggered my anxiety almost immediately. I started having panick attacks. I still do. And now one lymph in my right neck is still swollen and hurts but not as bad. I also recently went through a traumatic situation. I started to itch and soon found out my tonsils were infected. I treated that now its gone. But the lymph node is still there. (Keep in mind I also had eczema as a child). Now the lymph node is causing most of my worry. I went to an ENT and she couldnt find anything wrong with my throat and wasnt worried about my lymph node. But why?? Couldnt it be something serious? I'm still very worried still thinking every thing that I feel is related to some serious illness. I cry for no reason at night. I get panick attacks, neck pain, rib pain etc. Please help this is taking over my life!
