Customer:

hello

Customer:

no fever at all

Dr. P. Jyoti :

are the nodes tender?

Customer:

no

Dr. P. Jyoti :

there are a number of causes of such lymphadenopathy

Dr. P. Jyoti :

the most common cause is infections

Dr. P. Jyoti :

for swellings at different sites, autoimmune disorders are often the cause

Dr. P. Jyoti :

you now need to see your doctor for this

Customer:

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

Dr. P. Jyoti :

tests like fine needle aspiration biopsy may be needed for this

Dr. P. Jyoti :

discuss about this with your doctor

Dr. P. Jyoti :

blood tests are also needed to find your blood cell count, ESR, etc

Customer:

i have been havng my knuckles in my hands swell and the pan is awful

Dr. P. Jyoti :

discuss with your doctor about doing the ANA test which can detect autoimmune diseases

Dr. P. Jyoti :

that is very significant

Dr. P. Jyoti :

in that case, most likely is rheumatoid arthritis which can cause both this pain and the lymphadenopathy

Dr. P. Jyoti :

discuss about rheumatoid arthritis and other connective tissue disorders and autoimmune disorders with your doctor

Customer:

ok when i was in hosptal for surgery they were havng a really bad time fondng a vein for iv

Dr. P. Jyoti :

tests which are important for this include ESR, ANA and rheumatoid factor

Dr. P. Jyoti :

well, thats not related, just due to anatomy of your veins

Dr. P. Jyoti :

but you should approach your doctor and discuss all these aspects

Dr. P. Jyoti :

this will help get you an informed discussion

Dr. P. Jyoti :

you can go to your family physician/primary care physician

Dr. P. Jyoti :

they can refer you to a specialist if needed

Dr. P. Jyoti :

or if you want to go to a specialist directly, then go to an internal medicine specialist
