Have taken Ritalin as a study aid over last 2 years but am done w school now so no more...

Issue
7/19/07 I noticed some bumps (like bug bites) on my scalp (right side). They itched so I scratched. They are and have been tender since. Right side above ear is also tender.
7/20/07 I noticed what I thought was a pimple behind my ear (Right side) over skull . It also itched so I scratched. There are now two small lumps. Somewhat hard like a caper and a grape. Also tender.
7/217/23/07 I have has a series of swollen lymph glands in my neck (right side). From the 21st close to ear. This morning the 23rd extending to mid to lower neck (right side). All range from caper to grape. All tender to touch.Abput 4 total.

I am not feverish, no night sweats, no fatigue aside from normal working too much. Stool is normal…

What’s the deal? I’m going in for a blood panel tomorrow if I can be squeezed in.

Please advise. I’m freaking out. Way too much to do to expire now.

Thanks!

Went to Dr today and had my blood drawn They did a series of tests and find nothing abnormal.
