Fibro, Painful nodes armpits neck Normal CBC 01/01/07 05:33 PM I have posted before about lymph nodes. If you have swollen lymph nodes would a CBC come back completely normal. I have had pain in my armpits for 2 years and in my neck. My doctor says he can't feel them. I just had a chest xray and CBC and they came back normal. I am thinking maybe Fibro. I have pain in my shoulders both sides of the neck, just above the elbow, thigh, buttocks, knee, etc.. My real question is if I had swollen lymph nodes would a CBC come back normal or would it show some type of elevated counts. Thank you.
