Yes- I see you have posted your concerns numerous times on other questions, and I have reviewed them.
Yes, your stress can cause all your current symptoms. But I still would advise follow up testing at 3 months, as previously suggested.
If they are still enlarged now- I would suggest having a doctor examine them to confirm they are enlarged lymph nodes. Sometimes people feel normal lymph nodes and think they are abnormal- so a physicians' assessment would be indicated.
Yes, enlarged lymph nodes- if truly enlarged and abnormal, would merit further investigations- as this could be from a whole variety of infections, tumors or other conditions. If for instance you had a skin infection in the arm- from pimples, that could lead to enlarged lymph nodes ( but not usually both arms at the same time).
The location, firmness, mobility, and overlying skin changes all are important in evaluation lymph nodes- These are things that a good physician can tell by examining you, to let you know if it is something significant or not.
