I am having a terrible flare for the past two months. I am getting rib/thorasic/groin pain.

I have a lymph node in my groin that is very swollen and tender. I feel like it is worse when my other inflamation subsides a bit. I have a few more nodes that are in the same area that are less big and tender, but still noticable.

I am obviously going to the Dr to make sure it is "nothing else",

but I am wondering if anyone else has experienced painful lymph nodes during a flare up. I have read that this is common in RA, but have not seen so much info about AS.

Any experiences/thoughts?

Thanks so much.

Just wanted you to know I am thinking of you. I get the groin pain but I haven't had the swollen lymph nodes. I am glad you are going to the dr.

Keep in touch.

Hugs.

I hate flares! Jan/Feb is often tough for me, here's hoping Spring brings with it some health! I get a swollen gland in my neck on one side...seems like ever since I got ill one time in my 20s, it is the side that just reacts to whatever is going on. Weird. I think it responds to inflammation and/or my immune system. Best wishes for you and your gland issue!

My doctors are investigating swollen lymph glands are painful, in neck/jaw/under arm/ groin on me.

I am so tired all the time. I deal with uncontrolled pain A.S. pain all the time. Doesn't help with Psoriasis and gut rot pain.

Hopefully you will be feeling better soon.
