    As you know, I’ve been seeing a counselor and it helps, but I’m starting to think it’s not enough. As much as I don’t like the idea, I’m thinking medication might be the answer.

    Thanks, John. My biggest concern is the collarbone region, as everything Iíve read online says you shouldnít really be able to feel nodes there. I did have drenching night sweats before my original...
