Hi, thank you for your reply. I have very itchy legs, especially at night. My bloods have not flagged anything thus far other than my low kidney function and high creatinine, and my last full bloods was in September. My WBC was 8.6. The doctor just seemed very dismissive, telling me it’s “normal” I have asked for it ti be biopsied but his response was that he would refer me to haematology and let them decide if I need to be seen. 🙂

Hi, I am a 42 year old female. I have been having drenching night sweats for almost 2 years, they less frequently occur during the day. I am very tired all the time and tend to have itchy legs of an evening, scratching until blood drawn at times. Last March I found a lump in my left armpit. It is hard and moves and just smaller than a marble. I had a mammogram and an ultrasound and it was determined it was a normal reactive lymph node, however I was advised that if it got bigger or didn’t go down it would need re-evaluating. Well, it’s still the same & coupled with my symptoms Lymphoma fits, I have no weight loss at present but poor appetite. Gp has put me on a HRT gel for peri-menopause but it’s made no difference to my symptoms. I feel like I’m going round in circles as I keep going back to doctors with same symptoms. If anyone has any advice it would be appreciated. I had a melanoma in situ 10 years ago, which was only discovered as I didn’t like the mole exposed to the sun on the back of my neck (was a couple, different colours altogether) and I just had a gut feeling.
