I was diagnosed with Lupus in January 2009 by a lymph node biospy of my neck nodes. I had inflammation in pain in all my neck and facial lymph nodes for like 6 months, with a sore throat as well.
They found necrotizing histiocytic lymphadenitis. My pathology was done at the Mayo Clinic.
This is how I finally got a diagnosis after suffering for so long. I am still in pain and feeling crappy every day. It seems like there is always something new.
I just wondered if anyone out there had the lymph node symptom or surgery with this dx???
