Low Blood Pressure Swollen Lymph Nodes
Hypotension is defined as "low blood pressure". Blood pressure is measured as two numbers and expressed as systolic blood pressure (sbp) / diastolic blood pressure (dbp). The sbp is the pressure that is generated when the heart squeezes. Dbp occurs when the heart relaxes. 120/70 is considered normal in adults. Less than 100/60 (of either number) can ...Read more
Generalised lymphadenopathy with 8 or so swollen lymph nodes, no more than 2cm, fevers that come and go, loss of appetite, low white/red blood count?
I have swollen lymph nodes on my neck. I have them all the time. I am not sick though. My blood has been tested. What could it be?
Maybe nothing: In a young person, a thin person, children, sometimes lymph nodes are very easy to feel. They aren't really swollen, just easily felt. Are they tender, growing? Ask your doctor. If there is a definite concern a ct scan or a biopsy would help. But check first if they are concrend. It may be nothing to worry about. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my little boy (3) has had a swollen lymph nodes in groin and neck for months but bloods all normal?
2 options: If he is seemingly healthy, active, appetite good and no other symptoms, I would recommend watchful waiting. If any concurrent symptoms, he just isn't himself, poor growth or weight loss, fevers, then I would suggest a biopsy of one of the nodes. Make sure he has also had a TB test done as well. Also, if you have a cat, have him checked for cat-scratch disease (blood test). ...Read more
What do you suggest if my son (3) has swollen lymph nodes in neck and groin but bloods all normal should I still be worried?
Depends on situation: Lymph glands generally swell after stimulation and can do so after a general illness, vaccinations, or if limited to one area, some local factors. If they enlarge and gradually shrink back to resting size within 3-4 weeks, they are behaving normally. You have done the initial baseline workup, so I would give it time and recheck if it persists too long. ...Read more
2 swollen lymph nodes below ear and a few other places and no other symptoms at all. Something to worry about? We are waiting for the blood results.
Catscratch disease?: Single or few, large, mildly painful lymphnode (s) is the most common presentation after the initial several small papules (zit-like) at the site-of-infection/innoculation, usually 1-3 wks later. Most of the cases resolve on their own without treatment in 2-12 month, but some have fever/fatigue, headache, anorexia, joint pain, and other rare/severe symptoms. Consult to make sure this is catscratch. ...Read more
Hi, I'm about to have blood tests, worried. I have lots of swollen lymph nodes (not big in size) and have been feeling disoriented + weak for a while?
Bloodwork: Sorry to hear that, but not sure what to do at this time besides to encourage you to go forth and do the bloodwork. If negative, it'll be a great relief! ...Read more
Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more

Swollen lymph nodes all over body. All less than 2 cm but I keep getting more. Low grade temps over 6mths. Normal CT scan... What can it be?
Maybe nothing wrong: With small nodes and normal CT -- implying no enlarged nodes internally, no abnormalities of spleen or liver -- maybe nothing is wrong. Lymph nodes under 2 cm may not be enlarged at all -- assuming the lumps you feel are lymph nodes in the first place. Has your doctor confirmed them? Any lab results, e.g. HIV, syphilis, blood count? If your doc has reassured you all is well, I would agree. ...Read more

Possibly: Usually reaction or activity is more related to hormonal (example thyroid and blood glucose levels), general health (age, weight, exercise status, presence of sleep apnea, anemia/liver/kidney issues), and cerebral-cognitive issues (level of wakefulness, depression). A good review by your doc might help if the problem is severe enough. BP and med issues (ex-treating htn), could be involved. ...Read more
