    • Swollen lymph node behind head extremely tender tender and sore terrified it's lymphoma or some other cancer been stolen now for 3 days hurting for the last two help if anyone's ever had this before 
    • So I was doing better and then my life became a Sh*t Show. I won't bore you (or trigger you) with the details but suffice it to say, I'm dealing with my mother and mother-in-law both having severe health problems with a sudden onset (like overnight)...and my dog had what the vet thinks was a series of seizures...which I witnessed, while alone...not good. I adore my dog. Vet has no explanation. Long story short...things are what they are and I know that things with my mom and mother-in-law are not likely to improve too much. AND there's a lot of sibling family drama. Oh and yeah, the pandemic, social and political unrest, you know...the state of the world as a backdrop. So I was doing good...and then bam...the burning skin reared it's ugly head. I've had other symptoms but for some reason that one in my groin area always freaks me out. It's all external so likely not yeast. I see NO redness whatsoever. I've had burning skin there and elsewhere before. I've had this before and it has gone away on it's own for no particular reason. I've been seen by my gyno before and trust derm before but not this time. No one ever found anything though they both prescribed some kind of cream which I never used and it spontaneously went away. I've switched soaps...and that helped. I have chronically dry skin all over my body so a milder soap can't hurt and it did help...I think. Anyhow, can someone please talk me down from the ledge. 
    • I have  had Tinnutis for so long I am used to it. A friend of mine who is a physician has it too and he at one point had trouble dealing with it too. At this point I wish my Tinnutis was my biggest issue to deal with in my life so I try to put things in perspective. 
    • It would need to be something like an actual sound that can pull your mind away from your ears.  Nature would be good,  I am not sure about a rainstorm because it would sound too much like white noise.
    • Yes, white noise works.  I usually have Youtube audio playing while I try to fall asleep.  I also play a little bit of solitaire on my phone or something simple and relaxing to help me fall asleep as well. I still suggest you find a psychiatrist to talk to.  Simply talking to someone who knows how to deal with these situations will help you deal with the waiting period.
