about 4 days ago my left armpit started to become painful. it throbs fairly constant now. having a feel, it does not appear swollen but there is a tender spoke at the back near my shoulder blade. the only other symptom i have is stiffness in both hamstrings and feeling a bit tired. Any idea?

  • If you are suffering stiffness and tenderness and your armpit is throbbing you may have some type of virus. The lymphs are in the armpits and this may be why one is sore. Go see your GP who should be able to detect any inflamatin of the lymph glands and hopefully will send you for bloods for a white blood cell count and take it from there. But hopefully it will just pass, but if it start to get worse definitely go see your GP. Drink heaps of fluids and get rest.Agape,searchingsam.
