Have fever, swollen lymph nodes in neck, tiredness. Should I be concerned?

I have had a chronic low grade fever for approximately 8 months along with swollen lymph nodes on both sides of my neck for the past year and have not felt well in general. I have been extremely tired/exhausted regardless of the amount of sleep I get. I have been putting off going back to the Dr. because the last few times I saw her (about a year ago) she tells me everything looks good ( blood work, etc,) and I end up leaving her office feeling dismissed and contemplating if I m crazy. I have a copy of my blood work and would like to know if there is anything in the results that I should be concerned about.

Welcome to HCM,
After going through your history,You have chronic low grade fever with Lymph nodes in neck( Cervical region).
You have constitutional symptoms and you should not ignore your health, please visit your Physician and after physical examination workup CBC,FBS,S. Creatinine,an X ray chest and if required FNAC or excision biopsy of Lymph Node.
Your further line of action depends on result of such investigation, we need to know cause like any infection or Tuberculosis,any kind of Lymphoma, Hodgkin.
If nothing comes then proceed to CT scan Chest and abdominal Ultrasonography.
You can always take second opinion.
Please take care
Good Luck.
