I have had night sweats that are getting increasingly worse. I am having to get up several times per night, shower & change bedding.
Could this just be stress or anxiety?

random and not sure rleavent, I also developed an itchy patch just under my right shoulder blade nothing helps it and there is no visible sign it is there, I am thinking it is all just stress/anxiety

I had a tubal ligation almost 2 years ago, fairly regular
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i do get severe pain in my right side around that time and a couple days after
Doctor: khagihara, Doctor replied 1 year ago

The ear, head, neck problem could be due to ear infection. Night sweats makes me concerned. It could be due to lymphoma, leukemia, TB, and so forth. The nausea, stomach pain could be due to lymphoma. People with lymphoma, leukemia get infection easily. You should see your primary care doctor to have exam and a blood test.

i had blood work done over a year ago, could things change that quickly? could it just be stress/anxiety?
Doctor: khagihara, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Yes because you have some symptoms now. Less likely they are due to stress/anxiety.

if there a cold or flu going around that has these symtons that are just lingering? I do not have the best insurance right now and have been putting off doctors visits until we change carriers
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i apologize, i hope i am not wasting your time, i guess i was more looking for someone to tell me it was all in my head or stress/anxiety related. I have been on celexa in the past for anxiety but an not fond of feeling like a zombie
Doctor: khagihara, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Do you have anxiety/stress recently?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have a very demanding high stress job, my not feeling well and exhaustion are stressing me out
Doctor: khagihara, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Have you had similar symptoms before? If so, was your symptoms gone after taking celexa?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No I have not had all of this at once. Celexa made me feel comatose.
Doctor: khagihara, Doctor replied 1 year ago

Anxiety/stress doesn't cause ear redness and an itchy patch just under my right shoulder blade but could cause the other symptoms. I recommend you see your doctor soon after you change your insurance.

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.

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.
