I dont want to scare you but I have a friend who saw a doctor for four years about a "hernia" in her stomach which ended up being Hodgkins Disease and was actually a tumor. There is NO way a doctor can feel a lump and tell you what it is, just is not possible. Take care and good luck
I appreciate your comment. It helps me to want to investigate and know more about
this possibility. The doctors I've seen have had no curiosity as to why I've lost 100 pounds in one year, why I'm anemic or why some of my blood tests are a little off here and there. They just don't seem to care or they are clueless.
How does someone determine if they have Hodgkin's Disease? Is there blood tests for this? What kind of a doctor would I go to to check me for this?
I've had the scope, colonoscopy, x-rays, MRI's of my stomach in the past one year. Everything has turned up negative. I have no clue what to do next. Any suggestions?
Off topic, I saw my ENT today and he said my sinuses were badly inflamed and I had an infection. I had no clue about
that either since my sinuses seemed fine to me. But after waking up the past three days with swelling in my head and pain in my eyes I decided to see him because my alternative doctor suspected I had a sinus infection. Rather than take his word for it I went to my ENT (excellent doctor by not lyme literate) and he prescribed me some cortisone spray Nasacort AQ, plus some amoxy.
I wonder if it's safe to take a cortisone nasal spray with lyme disease, do you know? I also wonder if the infection and inflammation is lyme related. Probably no way to know that but the doctor did say it was serious and that I NEEDED to take the nasal spray asap.
Anyway, thanks for bringing up Hodgkin's Disease. I'm going to do some researching on this and see what the symptoms are. Feel free to respond to anything I've said.
