Hello,

I'm a 40-something year old male. Nearly three years ago I got sick with a terrible case of the flu and immediately after developed some kind of autoimmune disease. I have had many symptoms since then: fatigue, joint pain, pins and needles feelings, acid reflux, digestive problems, heart palpitations, cold hands and feet, skin that "dents" in more than it used to and gets red and irritated easily, swallowing discomfort, overall cold sensitivity, and a bunch of other things I cannot even remember right now.

I have obvious signs of inflammation in my body yet my stupid blood tests are always normal. I have individual diagnoses of: raynauds in hands and feet, supraventricular tachycardia, irritable bowel and acid reflux. Anyway, getting to my question - about 5 or 6 weeks ago I suddenly developed tender lymph nodes throughout my body. I have them everywhere it seems - in my groin, my underarms, behind my knees, the sides of my abdomen and above my buttocks. Some of them are somewhat enlarged too but the main problem is the pain. I have been so concerned about some kind of cancer (like leukemia) but so far my blood tests are fine. Could the lymph nodes be related to my autoimmune disease? Is there anyone else out there who has had lymph node pain or swewlling as part of their autoimmune disease?
I'd really appreciate hearing from you if you can relate to any of this.

Thanks....Mr. Strangeheart.

I'm not sure if I have an autoimmune disease for sure, but everyone on my fathers side of the family has an autoimmune disease. Also I have MANY MANY symptoms of an autoimmune disease. My glads are also tender as yours are. The one lymph node under my left ear is so big and lumpy I thought it might be cancerous but the my Dr. ensured me it is not. He also said it would go away with some antibiotics but the lumps still there.
