Hi all, me again!
I'm hoping to find some reassurance. Please no horror stories as I have serious health anxiety.
I have swollen lymphnodes in my groin area, I've had them for a few years now but I can't help but worry, the doctor checked them in September and she said she wasn't worried in the slightest as they are movable and she said she's been a doctor for a long time and isn't concerned by feeling my lymphnodes, she checked other places for them too, my underarms and collarbone, there were none she could feel. She could feel them in my neck but wasn't worried as they're very small. But why can't I stop worrying?? It's taking over my life again, I'm on my 3Rd week of 20mg citalopram, I'm having the odd night sweat (slightly) just worrying as I read that can be a sign of lymphoma!! But I'm hoping its just my tablets. I'm so scared, I have two beautiful young children to live for and my wonderful partner. I just want to be happy and healthy. I'm at that stage where I'm googling again and scaring myself. Oh and I also had full bloods done a few months ago and it came back fine, is that a good sign? I'm waiting to get an appointment with a psychiatrist so I'm hoping they will help.my way of thinking. This fear of terminal illness is ruining my life. Thanks for reading x
