Epstein Barr, Thyroid and lump on Neck

I was diagnosed with Eprstien Barr in the early 90's later told it is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  Have Hypothyroid and feel awful at the moment.  Was told my T3 is low at 1.3 and T4 at 10.7 am 5'2" tall and weigh 97 lbs.  Was put onto Armour 125mg per day and 0.5 mg of Thyroxin per day.  I feel worse, weight loss and now have developed a lump at the top of my spine and neck, also on my jaw just in front of my ear on the right.  The areas feel hot when touched but yet my temperature is normal when taken.  Tingling feeling on my thyroid, dizzy spells and often feel cold and chilly.  Full Blood count was done - shoed normal.  I am awating the outcome of tests done for Multiple Myeloma.  Not sure is this the Epstein Barr again, thyroid or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  I am a South African Living in Hong Kong - was recently exposed to a virus at the school where I teach with several children in the school being ill.  Fever and lots of vomiting.

Thanks for any advice or help
