Sorry everybody. im having hard time controlling my anxiety. Almost 2 week a ago i picked up some viral infection. I had a fever for 2 days and i went to urgent Care. They put me on antibiotics for 10 days and i finished it on Monday. Since the infection started i have been having night sweats (my neck and chest). I already had a panic attack twice when walk up in the middle of the night and felt sweaty. I started to cry and convinced myself it is lymphoma. i went to doctor yesterday to do all my blood work and he said i dont have a swollen lymph nodes but i cant stop thinking about it. please help me.

Antibiotics won't cure a viral infection - they are only effective against bacterial infections. Maybe you are still suffering from the effects of the virus. It may be worth discussing that with the medics.

I spoke with my doctor on Wed. he did physical on me and said everything looks good but I asked him to do all my bloodwork for everything and anything. I had chest xray done last year and it was clear. Im just freaking about about those night sweats. I can barely get through the day
