Does anyone else struggle with swollen lymph nodes? I quit taking imuran about 2 months ago and really am not on any immune suppressant. Now my glands have been so tender for a few weeks. I really don't have an appt with rheumy for another month. Anyone else struggle with this?

Hi Piffle,
 
If your Lupus is flaring it can cause your glands to swell and be tender. I had that a lot right before my diagnosis. Also, if you have Sjogren's Syndrome, that can cause swollen, tender glands too.  You might want to put a call into your rheumy's office just to give them the heads up.  They might be able to get you in sooner.

Thanks Ginny,
Think I'm going to call tomorrow. Just not sure if this is lupus or some crud going around. It seems to get better at times then it becomes so painful I can hardly move my neck around. Thanks again
