I smoked for 3months, and just decided to stop. A week after never touching a cigarette again, I suddenly started getting sick.
*I had gotten swollen lymph nodes, which randomly appeared and use to hurt - they still remain (8different spots on my neck and back of head). *A weak after the lumps appeared, I had gotten pink eye . *It is now a week after treating the pink eye and it's only improved so little, and now my left ear hurts (probable ear infection). *2 days later (yesterday), my ears started leaking clear fluids.
- I've also noticed I don't get up and do things around the house anymore. I haven't mowed, washed dishes, taken out garbage, ran to the store... I've literally not eaten a real meal since the lumps appeared. I've been living off cheesecake, candies, and cereal. All of which I've gotten really tired of eating but cannot find the energy to go get real food.
The hospital says the lumps are just my body fighting off an infection, and the pink eye may have came because of that. But I'm severely worried now that I have an ear infection, and clear fluids leaking. Plus the eating.
I'm seriously thinking it's because I stopped smoking. I was a 1pack, 2days smoker.View Thread
