Have CPT2 difiency with COPD, PAD, heart disease. had kidney failure. Noticed swelling in various part. Reason?

I m not sure exactly where to start or what type of doctor to ask theses questions but here goes I am a 49yr old female I have a rare muscle disease called CPT2 difiency , I also have many other medical conditions, COPD , PAD, heart disease, recurrent rhabdo with kidney failure due to the CPT2, heart stents and the list goes on, every time I see my doctor there is always more than one new thing going on so I don t want to constantly complain about any new things because I am starting to feel like a hypochondriac when I m not , I m actually having things going on , To start with I am concerned about different areas I am having swelling and soreness ...the groin area , the back of my neck just to the right of my spine , under my right arm pit, the right side of my chest area above the collar bone and right below the right butt cheek , I don t feel knots in these areas just swelling about the size of an egg and soreness, I was wondering if this are lymph nodes and should I get them checked out? Also I have repeatedly sprained my left ankle the summer of 2011. I went to my orthopedic and they did a x-ray . No broken bones but I did tear ligiments in it. , it has constantly been swollen since and keeps flaring up to the point I cannot put pressure on it , this has been going on for a year and a half now and hasn t gotten any better.. Can it be fixed now and how? Thank you for answering!

Thank for asking to HCM
I appreciate your concern, you really have multiple medical issues, and because of this your moral have broke down completely and ultimately your immune system also gone down that made you immunologically weak, if this is the situation then the chances of opportunistic infections are more likely I and guess it that this must be the case here, I would advise you to keep your self mentally fit to fight against all these conditions you do have this big weapons in your hand and you can defeat to all of them with this, will power, positive thinking high moral values, can make you feel better, have nice day.
