Question: worried about a friend: lumps and other symptoms

 Reebeks - Sun Sep 23, 2007 12:32 am

this friend is a 15 year old female. she began feeling unusually fatigued a while ago and went to see her general practitioner. there, she had a blood test, the results showing a virus and iron deficiency although glandular fever had been a possibility. she is now nauseous and her temperature has gone up slightly. she has no past serious medical issues, no surgeries and is currently on iron tablets for the iron deficiency. she had a rash shortly after she began taking these tablets but that has been gone for some weeks now. what are the possibilities?

I forgot to mention that she has two small lumps on the back of her neck near the hairline. they are painful when pressed and have not been tested for anything.
