Swollen lymph nodes? Just feeling very defeated
I was wondering if anyone's been experiencing any issues with swollen or enlarged lymph nodes? I have been noticing that the side of my neck throbs or feels like it's sticking out. I thought I had seen pretty much everything in terms of symptoms ever since I developed long covid in Jan 2022, but I seem to continue to experience more terrifying things as time goes on.
I know it's been so hard for so many of us — going to doctor after doctor, trying to seek help for endless symptoms that appear. My anxiety and depression swing wildly because I'm constantly afraid for my health. I don't even recognize my life anymore.
I'm thankful for the few good days I do have, but lately with the added stress from work, my symptoms are starting to get worse again and now I've been really concerned worrying about lymph nodes. Your mind starts to go to the worst case scenario.
I could live with these symptoms that continue to linger if I could just find a way to quiet my mind and keep me from thinking the worst. How do you turn your thoughts off when something feels wrong?
Thank you for listening. Appreciate any advice or thoughts
