I've read mixed things about this so it would be good to see if any of you have experienced it...when you're stressed (really badly , not just the day to day stresses) do you find your glands come up? I know this happened last time I had a really bad patch despite having no signs of being ill. I've been doing really well for about a year and hadn't noticed anything but I've taken a downward turn and the last couple of months I've been really anxious again. Just like last time my glands in my neck are popping up. I have now come down with a cold so some of it might be due to that but the glands were up over a month before this kicked in. I'm currently trying some tablets for suspected acid reflux so I mentioned it to the doctor when I saw her but she didn't seem bothered by them. If they're still up when I have to go back to review the meds in a month I'll mention it again but it just seems very coincidental. The problem is that my anxiety is over my health. Everything I get I seem to convince myself I have the big C so glands popping up everywhere just makes me even more worried. I wonder if there's a link to me running my body down by stressing so even though I'm not aware, my body is susceptible to little viruses etc even though I don't realise I'm ill.
