i am female and i have the same situation onset about 1 year ago. im in mid twenties and the past few weeks ive started to notice my left lymph node in throat swollen up as well as i believe to be my spleen... which is part of the lympathic system. i had a colonoscopy and endoscopy because my left side always severly bloats... i thought that would help give me answers but all that was found was imflamation. i get pain in my left ribcage and back... my odor changes daily but it hard to go from outgoing and pretty female to wonder what is wrong with me? how do i find answers!! i believe if i knew what the problem was than that might be just enough to help than not knowing at all... also i have notice my ears produce wet ear waz and are sometimes itchy (like an allergy) possibly.. how about you... i think there is a link somehow to liver/spleen/lympathic system as well as ear. i know its something internal it is nothing to do with bathing!! which i live my life a lie.. and sit at home now because of the embaressment... it just happened and why!!! sucks really bad. :( wish god would give me answers and help us through this...but i think its all to do with the lympathic system!
