I'm looking for some advice on where to go for the next step to investigate and find the problem that surfaced about 2.5 months ago.
I'm a 37 YO male and I've always been active and healthy. This is really my first time trying to navigate (the very frustrating and slow) healthcare system.
Four months ago I visited a doctor for a regular checkup. They did bloodwork and found that my testosterone
was low. I was put on TRT injections of 1cc a week. Within two weeks I was feeling fantastic, more active, better sleep.....I was happy.
About 5 weeks after I started I woke up with a tightness and pressure on the left side of my throat, that turned into a mild sore throat in that one spot, a lot of fatigue
and enlarged lymph nodes. A week later I went to this same doctor who prescribed Prednisone and the antibiotic (Augmentin).
Two weeks later I started to itch, it's a mild but annoying itch that can be relieved with a quick scratch. There is no specific area and it seems to be more prevalent in the evening. It may be behind the ear, on the leg or under my arm. It is very random but annoying.
With this new symptom I went back into the doctor who ordered a contract CT of the head and neck, check x-ray and series of standard bloodwork (CBC, thyroid
, mono etc).
He specifically said the xray and CT was to look at the rare possibility of something like Lymphoma. According to him, everything came back in the normal ranges. My lymph nodes while enlarged were not out of the normal size range and the CT and xray were not alarming and very normal.
He then sent me to an ENT. I was scoped and prodded, more bloodwork was done for allergies and everything came back normal.
This is where I am at today and I am not sure where to go next. I've very in tune with my body and physically active. I still have slightly enlarged lymph nodes in my neck and shoulder areas and I am itchy everyday.
What would be a recommended next step, my current primary care surely is out of ideas.
Thanks in advance.
