    Hi everyone..
    I went to see the doc about those lympy nodes. I had all that blood work done and it came back normal! My mamogram was fine. He gave me predisone and told me to take it everytime my lymph nodes statr to swell up. To only take it for two days. He thinks it should help. He didnt think it was anything serious because the labs were fine.
    He would not do a biopsy, said not nessesary..
    Do any of you have this problem and does your doc give you that kind of medicne for it?
    He said this is common with cfs and fibro...

    Hanging in there
    and not with a rope LOLOLOLO

    my lymph nodes are swollen most of the time,
    sometimes its severe enough to cause alot of pain in my neck...
    but it hasn't cause any bad problems.
    i can tell i'm going to get worse though if they swell up.

    +i think it is pretty common with FM/CFS.
    i had alot of tests done, too, and everything was normal.
    my doctor doesn't give me anything for it though,
    it doesn't seem to cause many problems

    That swollen lymph nodes always signify infection in the body. We tend to have chronic stealth infections and many of us have swollen lymph nodes. I think it is important to identify and treat these infections.

    Glad to hear that your appointment went well. Back when I first got sick my glands were always swollen, but not so much now...
