Have rheumatoid Arthritis. Lump behind ear, neck and arm pit, painful wrist, dizziness. Suggestions?

Hello, I am 20 years old and the only health problem I have is rheumatoid arthritis . I have had a lump behind my left ear for about 2 years, then another one has appeared next too as well as the back of my neck and under my arm pit on my right side in the last 6 months. I have been passing out and feeling sick and dizzy for the past 2 weeks but doctors just keep sending me home. I fainted about two hours ago and now i have hurt my wrist I m fed up and wonder if there is anything i can do. Thank you

thanks for writing to us ,

i need to ask you if the lump behind your ear /neck/armpit was evaluated . have you undergone an ultrasound /FNAC( fine needle aspiration cytology ). if not you need to see an ENT specialist at the earliest and get that evaluated .

meanwhile do you have reccurent fever , weight loss , loss of appetite . please do post in your recent blood reports . i would be able to guide you

i hope this helps
