Lymph nodes and AS

Lymph nodes and AS - 07/01/15 01:37 PM

I am constantly hobbled by inguinal lymphadenitis or inflammation of the lymph node in the groin. I've done a cursory search and have found that while other inflammatory disease are mentioned as having problems with lymph nodes, AS usually isn't mentioned.
There were a couple of mentions of linking AS and lymphandenitis on PubMed.

If we cannot get them to calm down, I will probably have to have them removed because they impede my walking.

Does anyone else have chronically inflamed lymph nodes? Or is it just me confused2

I'm not sure if its Lymph Nodes or not, but earlier this week I have been plagued by inflammation I guess in my inner groin areas. Makes walking a bit weird. Mercifully, its gone today.

several years ago, during one of my horrible summer flares (the kind that cause not just typical spondy symptoms, but other "more general autoimmune symptoms like i was getting erythema nodosum during those bad flares),

i also got a buboes in my right armpit, then my left, then the right, back and forth over a few month period of time.

thankfully in the armpit, it wasn't painful unless i pressed it, and didn't cause any disfunction.

once i started treating my flares with steroids and finally on humira, the buboes have not been a problem.
