Scared of these symptoms

I am a 40 year old man.

In the past 24 hours, I've got some very unusual pain in my armpits (both sides). Also on my right breast, right on the edge of the brown skin that surrounds the nipple, I've got pain. If I were to describe the pain, it kinda feels like what a deep infected pimple feels like. All three areas popped up overnight at the same time. None of the areas have any visible signs.

The only recent significant medical history is In 2001 while serving in the military, I suffered severe adverse effects after six weeks of Mefolquine prophylaxis. I have never fully recovered from some of the damage and still suffer from some of the symptoms ... sleep, balance, mood, diet, etc.

Wondering if anyone knows how common these symptoms are and what kind of doctor or exam I should seek.

All my medical care is through the VA ... which is hit and miss as far as quality and availability of care.

Thanks much.
