History of biopsy on the neck, infection, swollen lumph nodes, stress fractures, elevated TSH hormone, neuropathy. Whats the reason?

Not sure if I should take my 14 year old to the doctor or straight to ER . He has a history of a biopsy on his left side of his neck, turned out to be an infection. His lymph nodes have been swollen since Friday on his right side of his neck, he has a history of unknown stress fractures , which have now caused neuropathy, or RSD. At time of fractures they discovered elevated parathyroid levels, but they were not enlarged, then the level later of very low, latest blood work showed TSH hormone slightly elevated.

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
What type of infection is seen on lymph node biopsy?
If there is bacterial infection it has to be treated by antibiotics.
Stress fractures are suggestive of decreased bone strength because of decreased bone density and it will happen in conditions such as huperparathyroidism and osteogenesis imperfecta, and rickets or local bone problems such as bone tumors or bone cysts.
Elevate TSH has to be correlated clinically and with T3 and T4 levels.
Therefore I suggest you to take him to the doctor.
Hope I have answered your query.
