Hello all,
The lymph nodes on my left AND right groin have been swollen and getting elongated and bigger for the last 2 1/2 to 3 years. Before this, I never felt anything in that area. There are about 3 on the left side and 4 on the right side. I had a lymph node biopsy a year ago and they said they didn't find anything to worry about. About the same time I noticed the swollen nodes, my pelvis/hips/hamstring/butt area started getting sore/achey/tender after about 15 minutes of standing in one place. It's has been geetting worse and worse, my leg muscles ache and don't "respond" or contract like they used to. The muscles in my pelvis area just don't want to support my lower back/body like they used to, and they ache and swell up/get stiff after like I said, being on my feet for extended periods of time. Also, all my joints all over my body have progressively been cracking LOUD and feeling stiff, and just very weird things like the feeling of muscle tearing or ripping off bone from by buttox to my lower back when I do squats. I'm not a brain surgeon but I would bet whatever is happening is not good, or normal for that matter! I'm only 24 years old for god's sake and I feel like over the last 3 years my body has aged 10 years. I'm 6'2", 180 lbs, eat healthy, work out, have always been active... I've seen neurologists, reumatologists, ect ect and had emg's/ blood tests/ MRI? ect and nothing. They seem to believe it must be psychological and I should take antidepressents. LOL. It almost seems like a joke. I'm completely happy and content with everything in my life...EXCEPT for the fact that my body hurts and hinder's some activities I would otherwise be 100% enjoying. I'm at a loss on what to do. I've seen my GP and "specialists" too many times and gotten the same answer "we don't see any obvious signs for common issues, can't help you", to keep going back. There are millions of diseases and conditions out there and if you don't fit one of the main one's they see most often, I guess you're out of luck. If anyone has had similar symptoms or any advice on my situation, I would GREATLY appreciate your response. Thanks in advance! :)
