For the past two years I have not felt hunger pains at all.

Customer Question
Often I eat just because...
For the past two years I have not felt hunger pains at all. Often I eat just because I know I have to. However, I could go days without eating until I feel weak. Over the last four months, I have noticed two swollen lymph nodes under my chin. One about 1.5 cm. I have also noticed three smaller nodes in my neck. Lately, I have been feeling very nauseas after I eat anything. I have gone to rhe doctor constantly to get nodes checked but they all say there is nothing to be worried about. I also suffer from anxiery and worry. Therefore, I am scared that this is something very serious. Should I be considered?

Hi--can you tell me all the blood tests you've had?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I believe a complete blood count test
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 3 years ago
As in a CBC? What about liver and kidney functions, thyroid function, cortisol levels, vitamin levels, etc?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
that's right. I also had the liver and kidney enzymes looked at as well, I believe. I am unsure about thyroid function, cortisol and vitamin levels.
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 3 years ago
OK--sorry if this scares you but have you been screened for HIV?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
No I have not, I'm not sure how I would get that tho. I have been in contact with any needles and I have had the same sexual partner for four years who has been tested.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Should I get tested for that? I am concerned it's a form of cancer. Such as stomach or lymphoma?
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 3 years ago
OK. What exactly did your doctor tell you about the nodes?
And have you been screened for mononucleosis with an EBV viral titer or a mono spot test?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Well four months ago I got the one on thee left side looked at and they said not to worry. Now four months later I atill have the one on left side. I got an ultra sound on it and it measures 1.5 cm and the technician said benign. How ever since then I have had one appear on the other side under chin and small ones on neck. I just recently got been checked, last week. And the doctor looked at all of them plus groin and armpits and was not concerned.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I have not been screened for any of those other things you just listed.
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 3 years ago
Sorry for all the questions--
Have you been screened for an H pylori stomach infection?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
No worries, I want to know what is wrong. And no I have not.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Would something like that last two years and cause these symptoms?
Health Professional: Dr. Chip, Doctor (MD) replied 3 years ago
OK We can certainly continue after this if you'd like
From what you've told me I don't think we're dealing with any cancer--leukemia, lymphoma, or any other
I would do the mono and EBV screening since that may all this is.
That said, you also need thyroid screening, B12 and vitamin D levels checked, and cortisol levels checked.
But also I would do the H pylori screen. And any of those, untreated, could last two years or longer

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
