If your urine is darker than it should be, you need to increase your water intake. Dehydration can cause dark urine and constipation, accompanying stomach pain and even headaches.
It sounds like you don't drink nearly enough fluids.
Swollen glands can come and go, and unless they stay that way for a period of time, generally resolve on their own. Sometimes a course of antibiotics can ease the swelling, as a bacteria or virus can remain in the swollen gland/lymph nose, especially after strep and others like it.
I do not know what is wrong with you or whether or not you drink plenty of water; but, water is necessary for all the body's organs to function properly. Some of your symptoms go along with dehydration. Too much sugar may be a hindrance also. I hope you will learn to love water as I do.
My urologist ran a DHEA-S blood level (I dont know why) it came back '9" VERY low in range of 38-400 what can cause this--before anyone answers-I did some research says :LUPUS-=I dont have LUPUS cancer-I dont think I have cancer-MRI of abdomen all organs clean .clean colonoscopy biopsy this year, says Osteoporosis-I dont have that, Hypothyroidimsm-I have that but myTSH and T2 are NORMAL and my T4 is SLIGHLY high--it;s not hypothyroidism.

I ave pre=Diabetes but Glucose levels are NORMAL (taking ACTOS) WHAT SYMPTOMS do I have---CHRONIS FATIGUE,CHRONIC PAIN in body, No rashes--NO headaches---No other significant symptoms a level of 9 ois very concernng!!!
You have something SERIOUS. I oo not know what-yo uneed to see a HEMATLOGIST for multiple blood panels and a RHUEMATOLOGIST-for tests for SARCOID, or aother auto immune--unfortunaely there are a lot of bad doctors who dont do all tests needed-- I cant tell you what you have-but I suggest diligent trips to qulaified doctors--do not SELF MEDICATE-you dont know what you have, Best of luck. Drinkin WATER will NOT solve your problem--Yes- drink water-but it WONT FIX YOU>
Dark urine typically indicates dehydration. Most doctors start with the most logical, common reasons/explanations for symptoms. Once those have been ruled in or out, they may start looking for other causes and explanations.
There isn't any need to be offended, just suggesting we be cautious about suggesting to someone they are seriously ill. We can't know that.
I do agree he/she needs to see her doctor, in person and follow through on their recommendations for further treatment.
We all want the same thing, for each poster to get the medical care they need.
