A few months ago I suddenly had strong under arm

A few months ago I suddenly had strong under arm odor. Nothing drastic changed in my life that I can recall. After a few weeks it stopped, everything was normal.

Now for the past three days it's happening again. I scrubbed my armpits three times today before work and it didn't help. Within minutes it started to smell again. At work after an hour or so I reeked.

The only difference this time is that two weeks ago I had a vasectomy.

These are the only two instances in my 37 years of life that this has happened.

The smell is strong and smells different than normal under arm sweat. It happens when doing almost nothing. If I'm slightly active my arm pits begin to sweat and stink to high heaven.

Should I wait this out again seeing as how this second time I had a drastic change (vasectomy) in my life, or go to a specialist now?

About a month ago I noticed an unexplained bruise on my arm the size of a pea, then later realized there was a lump under the bruise as well maybe slightly smaller than a pea, however the bruise went away and I forgot about it for a week and then again I noticed the bruise with the lump. Any ideas?

Why has my right arm been falling asleep for the past 2 months. I ha e a 22 month old that is 30 pounds and I lift him and hold him with that arm. I was pregnant and miscarried 4 weeks ago. I am also over weight and was told a year ago my cholesterol was up but not enough for meds. It happens from mostly my elbow down but I do feel it in my upper arm a little. Mostly at night when I curl my arm under me. Tonight it started when I sat down for the first time leaning to the right and curling my arm. It is hard to get it to completely go away and it is partially numb now curling my arm to type this. I am nervous. There is a possibility I am pregnant again as my doctorsaid it was ok. I have Read about pregnancy induced carpal tunnel syndrome or could it be something worse? Thank you.

My arm suddenly went numb and when I tried to move it it worked but it felt like someone else was moving it. I could only tell it moved by watching it. Then the speed slowed down and I could barely move it at all. It was cold when it hit my other hand. Then my chest started to burn and my other arm started going numb. And everything started getting farther away as the numbness crept over my entire body. I hoped it was restricted blood flow from my previous wrist surgery. Because it started with that arm. I tried hard and jerked my right shoulder around. Hoping it would jar the senses like when your foot falls asleep. I could barely feel it but that s more than I had prior so I did it again. Then I sat on the bed and everything came back to me. I am a 21 year old female and I was not drinking or doing drugs. I had just woke up and had cooked food and drink and went to my room to eat. I am also a smoker, 5 4 weighing 104. I mention because it could be of importance. Please help it scared me. It s happened before about 8 months ago but not as severe. Simply numbness and far away and watching my body move
