Since you have swollen lymph nodes over multiple areas of the body, the body aches and pains could be due to conditions causing these swollen lymph nodes. Swollen lymph nodes across multiple areas or generalized lymphadenopathy can be due to viral infections such as mono or EBV or cytomegalovirus or due to bacterial infections like TB. HIV or AIDS, leukemia, lymphomas and other cancers can also be a cause. This could also be due to inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. It is difficult to determine the cause on net. You need to run tests for a confirmed diagnosis. Fibromyalgia could exist with the above mentioned causes. However anemia, diabetes, hypothyroidism and low vitamin D or B12 too could cause generalized aches and pain. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!

WHEN WILL IT EVER END?
I was dx with fibromyalgia by a doctor in one city in 2008 moved to another city in 2010 and started seeing another doctor (with the notes/medical record from the first doctor). The doctor in the new city started me all over again!!!!! I am having to go thru all the "rule out" test again. The new doc has now sent me to the rheumatologist and the neurologist. WELL, hundreds of d$llars and 2 years later, I still don't have the dx or the meds. I am suffering with this pain and numbness and don't know what to do. I still work full time and plan to continue, but this is the hardest thing I have EVER done. How can I get my dx to get treatment. I only want treatment because suffering is not "helping". Doc gives me a prescription for 3 flexeril a day, but I can't function(like I said before, I WORK FULL TIME) I just want some relief from the pain and fatigue. What can I do?
How likely would it be that I have HIV??? The last time I was "at risk" was when I was with my ex husband. He had multiple affairs. I was checked up until 8 weeks post contact and my blood test was negative. Would that 8 week test be conclusive?? Could being pregnant affect the test??
My current husband is in the military and we have been together for 5 years and he gets a test every year. His last test was 8 months ago and it was negative as well as all his others. Wouldnt he have it too?? I havent had one since the one I had 5 years ago that was negative. I didnt see a need because im in a committed relationship with someone who does not cheat. I dont know my ex-husbands HIV status because we stopped talking, I was only tested for it because he cheated and I was pregnant.
I never thought about it until now but this scares me! I never thought much about my lymph nodes because they have always been very sensitive. They even swelled when I was on birth control and then went back down some.
I've had a condition that caused the similar aches and body pain and swollen lymph glands that was diagnosed as sarcoidosis it can show up under X-ray and also ct scan which I had they also can chk the level with a blood test called ACE it has to be written down on the lab req it's not one of the regular tests for it. Good luck and I wouldn't worry too much about the HIV and if your really worried go get another test done just to ease your mind
Well you just totally described my life story from 2009. I had a car accident and life has never been the same. Slowly deteriating, cronic central nerve pain, lumbar is deteriating and so is my mind. I totally hate life but the love for my children keeps me alive. I could never destroy their life because at 45 mine feels like it's over. I hate nights and mornings are even worse. Funtion is all I do. No motivation for anything at all.I thought my life was horrible when I was younger and and mid 20's and even 30's. From abusers to cheaters, to unemotional and extremely cold hearted people. Now alone once again, lost everything after being a real good Realtor for 16 years. Now I lay here , continplating driving 3 minutes down the road because I hurt so bad and can bearly keep eyes open. Next comes my breathing mask so I can hopefully sleep for more then 2 hours at a time, we shall see. All I know is I have little to a little larger "knots" deepnear my muscles from arm pit area all the way down to calves. Literally. But life has to continue no matter how painful or lonely. Trying to be Mom and Dad at the same time wears me down even more, but I have to raise my little ones as they are my only life now. I lost my soulmate when God took him home in 1989 and I miss him everyday. Totally agree stress andanxiety brings it on but then that's daily inmy life. I am tired and drained but I hold onto the love for my children as they need me as much as I need them. Hold on tight Proudmommmanwife, this is not an easy road we are traveling but hopefully we will be here to see a cure..... <3
