My E.S.R. rate is at 53. I have about 2 tender to touch glands both sides starting at arm pit down on sides. Hurt when I press. Have them for 7 weeks.
And your question is: So far we know you have an elevated ESR indicating a likely acute inflammatory reaction of some type supported by your report of swollen lymph glands (i.e. lyphmadenopathy) which are painful to touch. But that's where the story ends. They will not go away without treatment. I suspect you are following with someone otherwise, how would you know the sed rate. Plan to biopsy I imagine?

Elevated WBC with lseft shift is prominent and even the "painless" abdomen when approached carefully will demonstrate some rebound tenderness and guarding. Fortunately we do have CT scanning - about 90% accurate. ...Read more
Needs evaluation!: Take him in - even if he's shy! he could have an infection in a part of the testicle. But my worry with any testicular change is malignancy. Ultrasound is a painless way to look at the testicle and be sure that there are no tumors. I don't want to frighten you, but they say some people would rather "die of embarrassment" than be examined.

Biopsy not show infl: The myofascial tender spots do not show changes in biopsy histology. There are a lot of theories - it appears to be related to muscular pain and may be related to de-conditioning.
