lymph nodes swollen
      #269020 - 11/17/12 02:59 PM

I have swollen lymph nodes in my groin and under my arms near my triceps and they are kinda painful. I have had this for a little over a week. i went to the doctor and he said they were not bad, not too big and not red or anything else like that. i have taken two oral tests, one at 6 weeks and one at 9 weeks. both neg. when i went to the doctor, he didn't order me another test even though i took the other two at home. Should i request another test, and should i be concern about the lymph nodes?

Just a bit more history, i got the flu like sick about four weeks after possible exposure. lasted about a day. the four weeks prior i had stomach aches and headache. after the flu, I was ok but then got little pimples on my chest area. never made white heads or anything, just little pimples. I have had diarrhea or loose stool for a while now off and on. also i have been feeling joint pain in my elbows, knees, fingers, and toes

the exposure was just a cut that I got from someone. don't know them and don't know how i got cut.
