Constant armpit and upper back pain, what could be this ?

For the last week I have been suffering from almost constant pain under both armpits and upper back. I have been in to the doctor and he did not find any swollen lymph glands under my arms. There is some irritation under my arms (minor). I have not had any night sweats , dramatic weight loss or loss of appetite . I wonder if this could be computer related injury. I recently fell off a ladder about one week ago but did not have any injuries that I know of. It is probably not cancer but I am concerned. Also I have not had any fever.

Welcome to health care magic family,
It seems that you might have got some infection mostly fungal as this is common site for fungus to grow and as you are working on computer there is less chance of evaporation or absorption of sweat.
There may be some irritation of skin may lead to pain.
Clean the area with clean shaving and by applying good branded talcum or antifungal powder.
Ok and bye.
