I have no clue if this is related to the CLL or not- I had lymp nodes behind the ear really bothering me and acting 'strange' about 10 days or so ago. I emailed the oncologist and he said it was an infection & to go see my regular dr. ASAP. Did that and she gave me an antibiotic.
Finished that on tue., the lymph nodes are still bothering me a lot but I guess it must have been thurs. Night or fri. AM I started having issues with my neck and by fri. AM I was in immense pain, I want to cry- I discovered a huge nodule (bump?) on the back of the right side of my head. I immediately emailed my dr. who referred me to my oncologist. I emailed him but haven't heard.
Now I have discovered another good size one and a couple smaller ones. All are basically the back of the head.
The only one that bothers me is the one on the right, it makes me nauseous and I can't move my neck much that direction.
I haven't been in any accidents or anything.
Yesterday, I tried ice/heat pack off and on all day but the Ice made it hurt more. I was given a pain pill, that didn't help but when I took a REALLY hot shower my head was 'numbed' so that helped but as soon as I got out, it was throbbing again...I put a hot towel on for about 20 minutes this am, I'm not sure if it did anything or not.
IF my dr. Can't figure it out, I know the ER's here won't likely plus I just can't spend 6-7 hours waiting (that's how long my roommate had to wait AFTER the triage nurse determined she had a stroke!)....I hurt too much (plus thanks to the CLL, I can't stay awake that long!)
Anyone have any ideas/advice???
