Re: Could this be lymphoma? After recent appointment with blood specialist?

Unfortunately I don't know much about lupus. You might want to lurk over in the lupus boards and read some of the symptoms but I can't imagine swollen lymph nodes not being a symptom. Having swollen glands/nodes means that your body is trying to fight off an infection. I would go see a hematologist asap so they can give you the proper diagnoses. When you say you feel warm, do you have a fever?

I have had swollen lymph nodes on several occasions always when I am sick or fighting an infection. You did the right thing by telling your folks and seeing the doc and consultant. Keep positive. I don't think it's anything life threatening.

You also mentioned you have Raynauds disease. Could that be the causeof all this and the positive ANA? Sorry not to familiar with that one.
