Swollen Lymph Nodes

Hi,
I am on my second try of the combo, but this time doing a nightly shot of 5 miu's and the 1200 mgs of Ribavarin.  Just recently I felt a swollen spot which was hard and was part of my skull, as I thought. I was asked how long they had been there.  I was told they were Lymph Nodes.  The Node below left ear is is normal one that is in the soft area, has been swollen and it comes to a point.  The ones up higher which I thought was nothing do not go away, as well as ones in neck and the one on behind left ears soft area.  Could this be caused by the heavy dosage I am doing?  I am doing this without a Dr so if you know anything please let me know.  Just recently I lost being able to get blood work done I followed it closely to see if needed to back off some.  Now I have no idea whats going on inside me. I am on disability from former Govt. job.  I have had Hep C 10 years not sure of month but is either November or December of 1991.  I was in a burn unit and was given 28 pints of blood during grafting.  I was also given Hep B but my body fought it off.  The C is chronic.........Thank You
