lyquidphyre, I had Cat Scratch Fever. No laughing it really is a disorder. I got scratched on my hand by a cat and the lymph gland under my arm swol up to the size of a golf ball. It was no big deal, really. I had surgery to have it removed, but no big deal.
The difference was that mine did not hurt. It could be that there are two different problems. The lymph glands could be from an infection. The pain in your legs could be from sciatica. Which is compression of a nerve/s in your spinal cord (a more serious problem) Yes you should see a doctor. Keep us informed

well I just read the rest of the thread. Anemia could cause cramps, but I'm not sure why it would be mainly in the morning.

*edit* I'm no doctor so pay attention to what he says closely

Well my other test came back... and everything is normal apparently- my cholesterol, glucose levels, she said everything was perfect and she doesn't know what is causing the cramps in my legs

The lymph nodes might be from the viral and bacterial infection I have

Im wondering if its my mattress thats making my legs hurt?

I was just going to post about it being the mattress. That is definetly a common problem... and just a coincidence that you had something going on with your lymph nodes at the same time.

I would see what you can do about trying out a different mattress for a few nights. Even if it's not something brand new (since you don't want to jump to that conclusion), sleeping on a different one might make a difference!

What type of mattress do you currently have and are you utilizing both a boxspring and mattress setup? It's possible for the springs in a mattress to wear to the point where they are no longer flexible and cause parts of the body to "sink" into a depressed area cutting off circulation. Did you mention this to your doctor?

I use both a box spring and mattress and right now. The box spring is fairly new (a little over a year and a half old I think) but the mattress we have had forever. but, at the same time.. my boyfriend isn't having these same problems and he sleeps there too.
I will talk to my parents about getting a new mattress and maybe I can pull out the couch bed and see if I sleep better there ... or maybe turn the mattress over or something

Yea. Well every person is different so he may not experience the same thing. It may be a combination of the old mattress, and the way you sleep.

I definetly agree though that the old mattress would sink, causing your body to be in very uncomfortable positions.

My water bed has too little water in it (haven't gotten around to fixing it yet) and on the weekends if I sleep late my back hurts when I get up. I was told by a doctor friend of mine that I needed a harder/stiffer matress. I don't think the sofa/bed will give any more support. Try rolling up a towel lengthwise and tucking it under your back. Add to it a little at a time till you find something that feels good. Lumbar support is what you are going for.
