This all started with a swollen lymph node on the side of my neck. It's small, almost like a bug bite, but related to where the tonsils would be. I went to a school nurse this morning as I am incapable of getting to a doctor's in my current financial state. With two very quick tests, she determined that most of my pains were from the slightly inflamed (but not infected i think) tonsils and the excessive mucas coating everything.
Allergy season just started, and I'm a huge hypochondriac. So naturally, when my aches and pains started, I googled and saw the worse. I'm 16 years old, and am also under INTENSE stress for my situation.
Headache, nausea, (TMI) constant running to the bathroom, mild sore throat, occasional loss of voice but resolved by coughing/drinking water, difficulty breathing, tight chest, chills, blanking out, body aches, general fatigue, etc. The sore on my neck has not increased in size, rather, it went from a red to a pale white as is now.
Does this sound like a miX of SEVERE allergies/stress? Or is it the worst case like I thought? I'm so scared and I don't know what I can do....
