do you have any fever, etc?
no fever at all
are the nodes tender?
there are a number of causes of such lymphadenopathy
the most common cause is infections
for swellings at different sites, autoimmune disorders are often the cause
you now need to see your doctor for this
after i got out of shower i didnt even no they were there til i felt under arm i thought it was a pimple but the same exact bumps are under each arm
tests like fine needle aspiration biopsy may be needed for this
discuss about this with your doctor
blood tests are also needed to find your blood cell count, ESR, etc
i have been havng my knuckles in my hands swell and the pan is awful
discuss with your doctor about doing the ANA test which can detect autoimmune diseases
that is very significant
in that case, most likely is rheumatoid arthritis which can cause both this pain and the lymphadenopathy
discuss about rheumatoid arthritis and other connective tissue disorders and autoimmune disorders with your doctor
ok when i was in hosptal for surgery they were havng a really bad time fondng a vein for iv
tests which are important for this include ESR, ANA and rheumatoid factor
well, thats not related, just due to anatomy of your veins
but you should approach your doctor and discuss all these aspects
this will help get you an informed discussion

yes thats right, that may be associated
you also need testing for female hormones
ok and what type of doc do i need to see to get the answer to these questions
you can go to your family physician/primary care physician
i had a complete hysterectomy
they can refer you to a specialist if needed
or if you want to go to a specialist directly, then go to an internal medicine specialist
but it is usually best to go to a primary care physician first
o ok wasnt sure on who to go to
well, go to a primary care physician first would be my recommendation
ok ty vm
for the initial testing, because they are usually more easily and quickly accessible
no that will be it
glad to help
Hope this shows you the way forward - wish you good health and a quick recovery.
