In the last two weeks I stared sweating in my armpits. I know that doesn't sound like much but, I only sweat in the heat of summer when I'm working outside. While I was at the R.A. dr. 3 weeks ago all of a sudden it was like a water tap was turned on. She was checking me for fibro. When she checked my armpits(how embarrissing) she said she could feel lymph nodes on both sides. Now I'm scared because I have already had breast cancer, and for the last two years I get this stabbing pain in my right armpit that shoots directly to my right breast. This is so painfull it doubles me over. It last a few minutes then goes away. Could there be any connection with the sweating and armpit pain? Has this happened to anyone else? For some reason I have hardly ever sweated very much. Thanks..

One home remedy for sweating is: use apple cider vinegar after you shower, let dry and then add your regualr deodorant/antipersperant
