Swollen lymph nodes over body

It started appx 6 mos ago with a swollen armpit lymph node. I ignored it for 5 months but the fatigue was getting worse so I went to the Dr and he ordered an ultrasound, mammogram and CBC and a trip to a surgeon who ruled out breast cancer. All test results were negative. When I returned to the Dr's a few days ago for a followup, I still had the swollen lymph node under armpit, as well as the back of my neck, collarbone and inside elbow. I was sent for more blood work and a CT Scan of my chest area and am awaiting the results. Since that visit, in the past three days, I now have noticed swollen areas, along with the others on my upper chest and top of foot. All of the swelling is on the left side. Doesn't this sound more like an infection out of control rather than lymphoma or anything else. Thanks!

I don't know what it may be, but I'm having similar symptoms and as a precaution I think I'm just going to insist on a PET scan and biopsy. Best wishes to you.
