Resolved Question:

hi , I am a 20 year old female
The top of my back has been sore for about 3 days now. more so when i look down at my feet it feels like my spine hurts , or else a muscle on both sides of spine, kind of confusing.
I also feel that my glands around my neck and throat are swollen,(my neck is also stiff ,quite sore) although my throat is not sore. its as though glands near my ears are also swollen... and It only happenend today. I also have had a light head since this morning and a kind of pressure headache or some kind of tension.
I think I may have had a bit of a temperature this morning which may be away now (couldnt check as the home thermometer is broke) :/

I have Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and asthma.
