I have to ask this,although I don't really want to8),but I'd rather know.Anyway,I've noticed that the lymph nodes near my elbows swell slightly and are painful after drinking alcohol.I know this is a symptom of Lyphoma ,but can it be a lupus symptom too?does anyone else get this?

hey i always have swollen lymph nodes alll around my neck and chin and sometimes in my groin when my lupus is flaring. never noticed any link with alcohol though...but wine that contains sulphites makes my lupus flare too... i never realised you had lymph nodes near your elbows that must be sore!!! xxx

Yes,the little suckers are everywhere!That's interesting about the sulphites though,because they make my asthma bad so maybe it is a reaction thing,ta,Mooks,

Julsie,

I am not a big drinker so I really do not know how alcohol may trigger swollen lymp nodes however I posted about unusual swelling throughout my body, ie: Breast, wrist, inside area of elbow and the entire leg from the knee down.

It seems like in the last 2 months I have been having unusual swelling to the point it has become annoying and yes, painful too.

My lymph nodes in my neck are always swollen as if I have a severe throat infection and yet I don't. Hope this helps. I think the swelling up and going down thing is all part of the inflammation process associated with auto immune disease process.

Hope you get feeling better soon.:wink2::wink2::wink2:
