I have noticed the past couple of months that my lymph nodes become tender and swollen during mestruation and ovulation. The lymph nodes that I have noticed are in my neck, under arms, and bends of my legs. My cycles are normal. I feel run down during these times as well. What should I be concerned about?
Feeling "run down" during your menses is quite normal and is a common premenstrual complaint. I'm not sure what to make of your tender lymph nodes. Perhaps a visit to your doctor when these symptoms are present will be helpful.
