Swollen glands

Hi I am new to writing posts so bear with me. I was diagnosed with Lupus in 1997 and have had many different treatments. For the past 12 weeks I have been feeling generally unwell, had swollen glands in my neck and feeling very lethargic. Over the last week my neck has become quite stiff with an ache going down my spine. My rheumatologist is so caring but so far has drawn a blank as to what this could be. Can anybody give me any advice please?

Did you get a blood test for glandular fever ??


Hi, Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. No I haven't had a blood test for glandular fever but my ESR and CRP are raised at 75 and 30.

Im not so good with blood tests , not sure if glandular fever raises ESR or CRP but its worth asking about. You should get it checked out particularly if this has been going on for awhile. Best wishes x
