unsure what to do about some of my symptoms

Posted , 3 users are following.

hi, i've been concerned about many many symptoms lately, but some of them i'm good with waiting until my physical next month to talk about them.

but since yesterday i've been having fatigue. i'm usually fatigued, because i have depression, but yesterday it was way worse than usual. i kept falling asleep! and even after i finally got up at like 1pm i was insanely drowsy. today i am still fairly drowsy and also slept more than usual.

last night i also noticed i have a swollen lymph node. it's behind my ear and it's painful. and i have also had a slight fever since yesterday, today a tad bit higher than yesterday. i am unsure how long the lymph node has been swollen for.

i don't feel sick, either. i know nodes can get a bit swollen when you have a cold or something, but i don't have one. just this light fever and insane fatigue.

long story short... should i wait until my physical next month to talk about this or make a sooner appointment? do i wait it out some more to see if it gets better at all? i have health anxiety so i get very concerned with every symptom i feel, so i am unsure what to do.
