Relationship To The Difficulty Of Gaining Weight With Enlarged Lymph Nodes?
Hi I want to ask. I have long wanted to raise my BB but my BB is easy to go down if I am stressed or have a lot of thoughts and stay up late. Does the difficulty of raising my BB have something to do with this submental lymph node? and I also have anemia. I have experienced this lymph node for about 7 years but it still exists and there are around 4 pieces. Is it dangerous if it is allowed to continue?

Thank you for the question.
Lymph nodes are important organs that function as a haven and the proliferation of white blood cells. These lymph nodes spread almost throughout the body, but what is more easily observed is around the jaw (including the submental lymph nodes located under the chin), behind the ears, neck, armpits, and also the groin.
Enlarged lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy) can trigger many possibilities, including benign or malignant infections (such as tuberculosis, HIV, cytomegalovirus, syphilis, toxoplasmosis), inflammatory disorders (such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus), benign or malignant tumors (such as tuberculosis, HIV, cytomegalovirus, syphilis, toxoplasmosis), inflammatory disorders (such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus), benign or malignant tumors (such as tuberculosis, HIV, cytomegalovirus, syphilis, toxoplasmosis), inflammatory disorders (such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus) others that metastasize to lymph nodes), side effects of drugs (such as anti-malaria drugs), and so on. Most of these conditions can indeed cause an increase in metabolism, and the impact of weight loss often decreases dramatically.
Not only because of the influence of stress, staying up late or enlarged lymph nodes, your weight can also be difficult to rise due to various other factors, such as inadequate nutritional intake, chronic vomiting or diarrhea, the influence of drugs, hyperthyroidism, diabetes, and so on. Anemia that you experience, can also occur due to the influence of various conditions causing enlargement of lymph nodes and weight gain is difficult to rise as we have mentioned above.
Related to your question, whether or not the enlarged glands in your chin depends on the underlying cause. Therefore, ideally you need to see yourself directly to a doctor or internist. With a physical examination, blood test, ultrasound, biopsy, or other supporting tests, often the doctor can determine the cause of your complaint, along with the best treatment.
However, if there are currently no emergency complaints that you are experiencing, you should postpone seeing a doctor first. Because the current outbreak of COVID-19 can make you more at risk of contracting the disease if you leave the house without urgent reasons. Safer, first resolve your complaint by:
Improve your personal hygiene
Increase your endurance, including by eating a variety of nutritious foods and contain antioxidants rich, drink lots, don't stress, sleep regularly, don't stay up late, discipline to exercise for at least 30 minutes every day
Do not smoke
Don't take any medicine or herbal medicine without doctor's advice
Do not over-press or move the swollen lymph nodes
If later severe complaints arise, such as high fever for more than 3 days, swelling in the jaw that is difficult when eating and talking, weight loss of more than 5% in a period of less than 6 months, and so on, immediately check with your doctor or internal medicine doctor to be handled properly according to the cause huh ..
I hope this helps.
