This forum is a great place for help! Good luck. Hi I had the same symptoms as you describe, with only the left lymph node at the neck swollen. I did not experience any problem with my health except for kidney stones which I thought were caused by dehydration during my daily jogging of 12 km.
Two doctors told me to drink lots of water, and only worry about the lymph node if it became bigger. I eventually consulted a Homeopath who found my ACE level to be extremely high and suspected sarcoidosis. I was diagnosed with sarcoid at age 43 by a pulmonologist. I am now I was prescribed 40 mg of prednisone reduced over 6 weeks to nil. The lymph node had disappeared completely but started showing up again after treatment was stopped. I am back on prednisone; with a reduced dose of 5 mg daily.
Two weeks ago I decided to try 5mg every alternative day; but my right temple area has began random twitching. Yesterday, I decided to go back to the 5 mg daily and see if the twitching stops. My personal approach was to get control over the disease first, because I had 8 kidney stones removed over a 6 year period, and it's an experience I never want to live through again.
So the prednisone for me is a 'blessing'. Prednisone just triggered these diseases earlier than I expected. All the best to you and hope your symptoms go away too. I have been on plaquniel for the last year and my lymph nodes have gone down to where the pulmorary specialist thinks I may be in remission but he is going to wait another six months before taking me off the drug.
This drug if taken based on the body mass not your weight should not affect your eyes. Keep it mind that, although we all have sarcoidosis, each case is unique- what works for one may not work for another.

I was diagnosed in late November of So far so good, apart from the lymph nodes in my neck and jaw. They have been swollen pretty much since my very first needle biopsy and then a full surgical excision from my neck which resulted in my diagnosis as the needle biopsy was inconclusive. I am now getting over the cold, but the lymph nodes don't seem to be shrinking accordingly. I had heard that this could happen, where lymphocytes flood to an area of infection, including the cancerous ones, then decide to stick around afterwards.
I just wanted to know if anyone out there has experienced any treatment for reducing the lymph node burden without going to full Chemo? I have read that steroids prednisone? I'm back to see my specialist mid April, and I'm so worried that I will be pushed to treatment just because of the lymph node swelling! At 47, I don't really want to use up one of my 'treatment bullets' so early on although a part of me want's the treatment just to get a few years remission and get on with life - maybe with the hope that I'm one of the lucky few for which FCR provides a cure.
The problem with large nodes in the neck is that they press on any arteries and blood vessels and this can cause other problems. If these become serious it may be that treatment will be considered. You are obviously concerned so if I was in your position I would make a call to my consultant or specialist nurse to discuss the concerns you have.
Remember they understand not only the condition but also the psychological situation we all face. I have done 3 courses of chlorambucil to debulk them. Its an old chemo, pretty mild. It halves my wbc and makes my nodes shrink. I look at it as a delaying tactic from "real" treatment. I agree with pkenn though; the expert consensus is to hit the CLL hard with an effective treatment, rather than have a gentle go at it and waste some of the value of your first treatment and risk ending up with a shorter remission.
I suspect that's why rituximab monotherapy is rarely if ever used by CLL specialists. It is possible to selectively shrink nodes with radiation therapy, but they'd need to be a threat to your health for that to be offered I expect.
You could try a high dose of green tea capsules 2 to 4 grams of the active ingredient EGCG daily , which a Mayo clinic trial found to reduce node size in many of those on the phase II trial. There's plenty of discussion on that elsewhere here if you search for 'cllsupport green tea EGCG'. It's turned me into a hypochondriac! I take a green tea capsule every morning and have 3 - 4 cups of green tea a day, so hopefully that's helping a bit.
None of my nodes are bigger than 1cm normally Cammie, which I know isn't really big at all, although there are quite a few of them. I've suffered from body dysmorphia pretty much all my life, and I'm told that when people first meet me they don't even notice my neck and jaw swelling although I'm sure my beard helps , but when I can no longer avoid looking in a mirror for whatever reason, I see a hamster hoarding food!
Jasonfox, I was diagnosed 5 years ago age 48 at the time and have had 2 rounds of Rituxan treatments since then. My issue is much the same in that the nodes in the neck contract my throat and it makes it hard to swallow. Eyes have been swollen for 3 years now. Don't know if it is the treatments or affects of the Lymphoma. The treatments are not bad and very little side affects.
I will try the green tea suggested here. Haven't done that one yet. Good Luck. I feel your pain on the using up the bullets. After 2 rounds of Rituxan then Chemo is next and I will try to hold out as long as possible. Last round of Rituzan was in the fall and I'm hoping to get a couple years out of that.
It seems that the watch and wait treatment is the standard here. Lots of stuff going on out there and I'm hoping blood replacement or something like that can provide a cure.
Again Good Luck! I know this is an old post, but I am just now interested in prednisone. Can you tell me your dosage and how soon it shrank your lymph nodes. I'm just interested as to what happened about your lymph nodes?
I've had the same issue just recently. I had some kind of virus I think??? I'm going back to the doctor shortly but its left me pretty worried.
I had a blood test just recently and it came back within the range that it normally fluctuates within. Apart from the nodes, I'm as fit as a fiddle with no other symptoms. My consultant explained that the lymph nodes were just part of my CLL being 'active' and there was worry that another virus or infection could close off my airways!
I was also losing weight quite rapidly. Long story short, I ended up having FCR treatment. I have just finished cycle 6 of 6, and feel better than I have in a long time! It's true with chronic diseases that you don't realise how sick you are until you have treatment. About 5 months ago, swollen lymph node on neck appeared about size of golf ball.
