Another possible symptom of mesenteric adenitis is tenderness in the abdominal region which may extend to the top of the legs. Sensitivity is a symptom that frequently accompanies abdominal pain and discomfort. Tenderness can occur on different levels, ranging from mild to severe. The most common cause of tenderness is the inflammation or irritation of the abdominal cavity. In this case, swollen lymph nodes may also be a cause of tenderness. Even though this condition usually resolves on its own, it is always a good idea to get a check-up to make sure no permanent damage has occurred.
