ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I’ve got many diseases and symptoms but the most current is “swollen lymph nodes”. I had an ultrasound which showed “masses” near my jaw line, followed up with a CT with contrast that showed every single lymph node from cervical up were swollen, then a biopsy was performed to determine if it was lymphoma cancer which tested negative. My lymph nodes are anywhere from 2cm - 2.9cm according to the CT with contrast. Most doctors do not know sjogrens and never even heard the name “sjogrens” before. My rheumatologist believes the swollen lymph nodes is from it but no one can agree to it. I have so much swelling in my head and neck that my ears have a lot of pressure which has caused pain and some decrease with hearing. My biggest concern is if no one can agree to the root cause, nothing further is being done to check into it, and they are already nearing 3cm in some areas, what happens if they keep growing? How can it be treated? What is the cause of it?
