hello, I had glandular fever about 15 yrs ago and was very very poorly. My glands have sollen up several types since -particularly when I am run down or have a cold. I have a flu jab every year and after the flu jab, in the same arm, my armpit lymph node swells up and becomes very painful. This lasts for about a week. is this normal? should I see a doctor?
i am ok to continue waiting for a response
I was diagnosed originally with glandular fever. I remember feeling like something had popped and being violently sick. I had recurrent episodes of what I thought was glandular fever. (My lymph nodes would swell up etc) I remember this particularly after a night of being out and drinking alcohol. My glands swell up always when I have a cold, am over tired or am run down. My armpit lymph node always swells up in the arm I had the flu jab in, for about 5-7 days after having the jab. I sometimes get a dead leg -also when I'm tired or run down.
I remember having lots of blood tests over the years. I have had episodes of psychosis over the past 14 yrs and am on a minimum dosage of olanzapine for this. My immune system seems okay -I don't catch many colds and am in okay health.
Thank you for your help and please ask if you need further info
