I feel like I've been living in a GP's surgery half my life. It's hard someitmes to explain to docotrs what one needs and ne taken seriously, everytime I go I feel like an idiot. I know I'm having syptoms that unrelated to a disease I'd been diagnosed with but I'm not getting any real answers from the doctors and it make me feel worse.

I sweat excessively and it isn't normal sweat, it's heavy and stains my clothes! Then I get painful arm pits and breasts during and after my cycle - very painful. I then have dizzy spells and a nostril that bleeds sporadically after a sharp pain in my head, one side of my neck is always swollen - the glands on the side near the jaw.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  You need to change your doctor or get a second opinion from another physician.  It's important for your doctor to do testing such as imaging test and blood work to know what can be causing all these symptoms.  The fact you are having dizziness and swollen neck, can also be fluids in your middle ear.  But only a doctor or specialist can diagnose your symptoms.  With the proper testings.
