I am suffering pain and discomfort in my lymph glands in my chest, armpits and neck area. I had a mammogram yesterday which was clear. Is it possible I just have an infection?

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Do you have fever or cough ?

Any rash ?

Swollen lymph glands ??

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No fever or cough, no rash, I don't think they are swollen they just hurt

Thanks for the information

The possibility of infection is quite likely but considering you have hair loss and fatigue as well I would suggest that you do get some blood work including an ANA . This will show if you doesn,t have an autoimmune problem like lupus which can give these symptoms. Another thing which should be checked is a thyroid hormone profile . If you haven,t seen your doctor yet then do have an examination and then get the tests as required

Good luck
