Great so another swollen lymph node has appeared in my groin, the last one went down a lot after a couple of weeks but is still there a little bit and now theres a large sore one next to it and I can feel another two on the other side which aren't massive but feelable......going to be a couple of days until I can see a doctor. Really worried its one of my meds causing this, my Crohn's and arthritis is great and can't be managed med-free so lord knows what state I'd end up in if I was taken off any of them.
Has anyone else been on immunosuppressants and had trouble with lymph nodes and its been OK? Its hard not to fear the worst but knowing my luck.....argh! I have bloodtests once a month so surely if it was something sinister it would show in those?

Sorry, I have not had any problems with Immunosuppressants. I would think that blood work would show something.

I've been on Humira for quite some time, and I have had issues with lymph nodes and glands being swollen. In the past, my doc has just put me on an antibiotics, assuming it was an infection. It always helped!
