How are you doing now? Swollen lymph nodes freak people out but we all get them. We are SUPPOSED to. It's our body fighting off infections or viruses. Having covid will do it. Not at all unusual to have a lymph node swell during an illness and it usually lasts for a bit of time after. It's a sign that your body is working. It's a GOOD thing.

Hi. I still have swollen lymphnodes. They are reactive. But all my blood tests HIV CBC LDH and more are good. Dont know what to test more.
The point of my post was to tell you that reactive lymph nodes are normal and a positive. It can take six months for a reactive lymph node to go down and having covid or any virus like a cold could result in them. So, I wouldn't worry. Quit worrying about std's that you don't have. You are right, no more testing.
