It sounds like you need to see your family doctor, for starters. You are listing classic symptoms of lymphoma, but I wouldn't dare try to diagnose you. I'm sure there are other conditions which cause similar symptoms. The large percentage of your body weight lost in such a short time seems most alarming. I never had pruritis (itching) but can imagine how maddening it might be. Good luck to you and let us know what you find out?

Lizzy,

If I were you, I would ask my ENT to refer me to an oncologist.   If the ENT does not know what is wrong with you, it is time to move on.  Itching CAN BE a symptom of lymphoma, but of course it can be a lot of other things also, so there is no way to know yet. 

Severe itching with weakness, significant weight loss, and enlarged nodes  are matters that I would get to a new doctor with as quickly as possible. 

No one here can tell you what is causing this -- only your doctor can run the necessary test to determine that.

I totally agree with Max.  It could be nothing serious but it is best to find out what's going on.

We're here to support you.  Good luck and let us know what you find out.

Hugs - Jim

Lizzy,

Listen to all these great minds, they are right.....seek other Doctor's! I was told for 6 months that there was nothing wrong with me. I am not saying this to scare you or worry you, but at the end of the day those kids needs you to take care of yourself physically and emotionally. I am a single mother that was going to school full time and working 50 hours a week when I got diagnosed a few months ago. Bugs freak me out too, I have started itching recently, but it was not a side effect intially. I urge you to take care of yourself and not ignore it.

XXXOOO
