I haven't been on in some time due to health problems and I guess along with the problems a lack of motivation. I lost 55lbs using spark and sad to say I've gained 20 back. UGH! So here I am on this journey again. Diagnosed with RA last year and it's been a bumpy road getting used to my new body. Anyway I'm hoping to meet some new people on here that can relate to what I've been going through. Unless you've got RA I don't think people truly get it.
I do have a question I'm wondering if anyone could help with. Around January I started noticing my lymph nodes were swelling up. I've had over a dozen Dr. appointments in the past few months, 2 ultrasounds and 3 cat scans. 5 different Doctors trying to figure out why my lymph nodes in neck, clavicle, groin are palpable. Ended up going to University of Michigan's cancer center and met with the Chief of Oncology. He say's they are there yes but don't feel malignant and possibly could be just normal for me. Anyways they are still there, no reason still as to why. I know my body they weren't always like this. Has anyone had issues with RA and lymph nodes???
I am not taking any meds for the RA other than an occasional pain killer because some mornings its hard to move. I'm afraid to take the methotrexate prescribed to me because I read it can cause cancer. I know it's probably stupid of me but I just don't want things to be worse than right now! I hope I posted this in the right area if not sorry I wasn't sure where to post. Thanks a bunch for any help!
