anyone a doctor?- small update

Im getting really concerned. For the last month and a half, the lower half of my body hurts when I wake up in the morning.. and continues to hurt through out the day. At first I thought it was my mattress... but now Ive developed groups of small bumps (im assuming swollen lymph nodes) on the lower parts of my leg. Also, ive been getting horrid charlie horses in my feet more often

I looked up lymph nodes in the legs online.. and they don't give me much information
Im going to the doctor this week.. but ive never ever heard of someone getting swollen lymph nodes on their legs... has anyone else?

~*~~*~* UPDATE*~*~*~*~
I flipped over my mattress and im sleeping so so so so much better. Im not in pain anymore when i wake up. I bought some iron supplements at the store last night.. and im taking my antibiotics... I am on the road to recovery. Thanks so much everyone for all of you concern, suggestions and prayers *big hugs*

Go. To. The. Doctor. NOW.


Legs are nothing to joke with, Many times a clot can form in them...and travel to the lungs...and death follows swiftly after.

They are on my tibia (er, the lower,frontal part of my leg...that bone)

I started drinking slim fast and it has a lot of potassiam and I get a lot of sodium in my diet

I thought it could be the potassium.. but I think im getting enough

thanks for the link electrikat... that one doesnt say legs have lymph nodes but some other websites do hmm

Im definatly going to the doctor on Monday, I was just wondering if anyone has known someone with the same problems

I am extremly concerned, this pain has gone on way to long to just shrug off as sleeping weird

thanks

I guess I should also mention I had a HUGE lymph node elsewhere that was there for a long time as well

bah

Hopefully they can give me some medicine to help drain the lymph nodes and that it isn't serious

*worried*
