So sorry you feel like that.

I too suffer from health anxiety and I'd be in the same state as you.

I don't know what the blood count figure means- sorry.

If your blood test was okay then hopefully it's nothing to worry about. Maybe pop into the doctor just to talk it through.

Probably you have an infection or a cold which can make your lymph nodes swell.

Try and stay calm.

Hi, I am sure is not cancer . There is so many reasons for swollen lymp nodes, get to your doctor and have it check out . Did you have your thyroid checked ! .? anxiety is an emotion and it start from a thought in your head . So when you start working and thinking the worst that bring out the symptoms of anxiety . You need stop worring so much and do not check any online places for symptoms please this is the worts and it only will make you more anxious , speak to your doctor as you could just have an infection in your body and hence the White blood count. Try relaxation and mindfulness .


Yes dont worry too much about it. Colds flu infection can all cause your lymph nodes to swell. Trust its nothing bad. Im the same i always think the worst of a situation. Hope you stay anxiety free
