Lymph node pain?

Hi there

Quick question, probably really obvious... I am just coming out of a flare joint-pain wise but feel tired and sick, and now have a really sore what I assume is a lymph node on the side of my neck. It is very tender to touch and really hurts when I swallow - it's a real battle to eat! Is this lupus-related and will it go away soon please? I do so love my food normally! Is there anything that helps?

I'm driving my poor husband mad with 3 new problems in the last 2 weeks: he's only just adjusting to the idea of me being photosensitive...

Hi Hatty,

Is it possible you have some viral infection or something like that? My lymph nodes with Lupus are not usually sensitive to touch and they don't hurt, they are just very prominent.
