What could cause lymphnodes in both sides of neck to swell? And what other tests are done to check for swelling of other lymphs in body? Swollen 3 yea

Monitoring Centers: The lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph to see if anything bad is there like bacteria, viruses, cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and they enlarge in response to inflammation when they react. If no problem, they shrink. Biopsy for concerns. ...Read more

Swelling, tingling an numbness on left side of the body only aware of pinched nerve, however swelling an constant feel of pins an needles are recent.

Tingling: Tingling and numbness that affects half of the body (which most people mean as including an upper limb, a lower limb, one side of the trunk, and sometimes one half of the face) can be caused by a problem in the brain or spinal cord. A pinched nerve can not cause those sorts of problems. Swelling of half the body is very uncommon. Such problems should be evaluated by a primary care doctor (family practice or internal medicine) who can help determine if a specialist is needed. ...Read more

Still got swelling right side abdomen ten days post laparoscopy. Dr said body is trying to push out the stitches. What does this mean?

Likely normal: I do not know what surgery you had, or if the swelling you describe is located at one of the surgical sites. Swelling after any surgery is normal, and it can take a few weeks for swelling at a healing scar to resolve. It can depend on the size & location of the incision, what sutures were used, etc. Follow the directions of your surgeon. ...Read more

Can you tell me if the side effects from a salt load infusion is body swelling, face, legs, ankles, hands. A week later still?

Yes but: It would have to be several liters/bags
if you are/were ill in order to recieve the infusion, then it is more likely that your blood vessels were "leaky" and the fluid seeped out and under your skin. The body usually gets rid of it as you get better.

But it could be part of the adrenal problem you seem to be getting tests for. ...Read more

Hi doctor I've s swelling on left hand side of my body just under rib cage which is sore all over that area?

This may involve lab testing& imaging too. So, don't delay. If it's still painful over this area, it won't get better faster w/o med care. ...Read more
