Anyone else with these type of symptoms fibromyalgia or lupus?

Posted , 6 users are following.

Okay so I just heard back from the doctor and they tell me that I have another swollen lymph node in my groin area but there is no infection anywhere in my body there is no other medication and he's going to give me other than Naproxen and he's telling me to follow up with the oncologist that saw me due to the swollen auxiliary lymph nodes. I guess I'm just really really tired and I really want to know what the heck is going on and this is taking too long and very upsetting. Has anybody ever gone through this with swollen lymph nodes in the auxiliary area and in the groin area but no infection and no arthritis?

    UGh...that is the last thing we want to hear is we have to see an oncologist.

    I was told I have to see one too...not for the glands..but for weird blood work.

    I am putting it off sad.

    I have swollen lymph nodes in my arm pits only cause I don't have odor and I don't sweat like most people . I get clammy . No infections never just annoying and I stop taking anything . Except Mobic it's easier on my stomach and helps with some pain makes it mild with my fibro . Also might wanna get a breast exam you might also have fibro tumors if you have swollen lymph nodes . I have one left side .

    I use a lavender or flaxseed heat bag to help when lymph nodes get swollen just a thought

      Thank you. I'm just so tired of all this pain I can not get a decent night's rest. I wake up every 2 hours. Stiff as a board when I get out of the bed in the morning. I was thinking about getting a deep tissue massage but now I'm having second thoughts because I think it may make it worse

      I have deep tissue massage once a month and it can be quite painful during the massage but after I feel a lot less tense and I am able to relax a bit better! Give it a try it may help x

      the dr. Just gave me the sizes of them and told me to see the oncologist. He also said that it's not cancer and it's not arthritis and it's not an infection. So I'm guessing it's some type of an autoimmune disease but no one has said anything about an autoimmune disease

      It's so worrying isn't it? Especially when you don't know what it is!! I get very anxious over mine and think all sorts of things but my doctor doesn't seem concerned at all!
