Dear people,

For the past few years I had a bunch of weird symptoms that could be very scary at some times. One of the things I have is chronically swollen lymp nodes. I had one in my neck for five years, this one got smaller but it just replaced itself and is now in my jaw region.

I think I had menigitis many times but I started to doubt my own sanity since these headache, high fever and stiff neck attacks never resulted in a deadly septic end, so I never went to the doctor because I did not want to be seen as a hypochrondiac.

Now, I also have bubbly urine, for which I will visit my doctor. I suffer photosensitivity since a year and my joints have also been very painful but no inflammation is present. I've had mouth ulcers since I was a child. I suffer chest pain, had a problem with my lungs.
Quitting smoking resulted in colitis so I smoke again but I will quit at another date.

One thing I noticed is that I have a discoloured area in my face. It doesn't really look like a butterfly though. It's a recent thing so I don't know if it's a latent malar rash? I will add a picture, and I hope anyone can tell me if they recognize it as a butterfly rash, or one that is just developing.

I have no history of acne in that area and no tendency to burn in the sun (partly Middle-Eastern ancestry).

Thank you in advance.
