Alternating Lymph nodes underarms
« on: June 16, 2014, 02:45:01 PM »
So, it's been a LONG LONG time, since I've posted anything in reference to my own self.  But, I can't resist posting this one, just for the mere fact that I'm very curious if anyone else has every experience this...

For 2 years, I have flare ups of the lymph nodes in my underarms becoming very tender and swollen.  The weird thing is, it will only last for like a day and it will go away and then it will come back in the other arm and it can last for a few days and go away...and back and forth, between arms.

They hurt BAD when they do this.  And before I can actually "feel" the nodes, I will get the sensation of a bee sting in the arm pits.   I've noticed that my breast will also be tender and have random pains while this is going on.

I went for almost a year without a single problem and then in the last 2 weeks, I've had at least four "episodes" as I call them.

I've been to the doctor in the past...they have no idea.   ::)  I've had a mammogram and an ultrasound of the breast and under the arm.  They did note a swollen node at the time, but said it was of no significance.   

So..here I am again.  Luckily, I'm not really having an "HA freak out".... but, it does have my wheels turning.  I'm having to use every trick in the book and every  ounce of will power, not to go "there"...(I know you know where "there" is)....  So, far, so good.    :winking0008:

Thanks for letting me get it out here!!  :action-smiley-065:

Mine do this, too. It's been going on since last year. I never really took notice until my HA "came back" last month.

I stopped worrying about it. I went to my OBGYN & he said I was fine. He didn't feel any lumps or nodes.

But you aren't alone. =]

My wife does this as well.  "Bad nodes" don't work the ways yours are flaring up.  It's likely from you fighting some sort of infection.  Tenderness, waxing and waning, larger then smaller all point to reactive nodes doing their job.

I think mine are from this sinus infection I've had off & on. I live in Louisiana & the pollen mixed with the  humidity here causes me to constantly have sinus/allergy issues.

mroussa,

That's a BIG possibility for me too.  I live and Florida and it's the same here.  I'm constantly fighting congestion, sinus, coughing, etc...

BTW (Just got back from Louisiana last weekend).  My husband's family is all from there and still live there.  LOL

Most of his family lives in, Plaquemine- it's about 45 minutes or so from Baton Rouge.   

I really hope this lymph node thing is nothing to worry about.  The only thing that keeps me thinking about it is the stupid "bee sting" type feeling I get before one swells.  And also the strange sensations I'm feeling the breast.   I broke my golden rule and did a "little" googling today.  It wasn't pretty (of course).   I can't believe I let myself do that...now I've got to recover from falling off the wagon and practice what I preach around here!!  :(

I did make an appointment with my OBGYN for July 10th.  I was due for my annual anyways.
