Hi Mammasnook,

Your symptoms do fit with lymphoma; however, there are many other possibilities as well, including a viral infection causing diffuse inflammation of the body.

I would recommend you see your doctor for further evaluation to determine if more work up needs to be done (which is likely to be the case).

Best wishes.
