Is soreness under the armpit a symptom of a swollen lymph node?

I am experiencing extreme fatigue that is progressively getting worse by the day. I cannot get through a shower without feeling weak and faint and have to sit down and get help from my husband to get out. I have fibromyalgia and hbp but something is different. Also have soreness under left armpit and breast area. I wondered if it is a swollen lymph node.

Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. Please check once again for enlarged lymph nodes . Fibromyalgia may present like enlarged lymph nodes.

Hot water bath may cause hypotension and giddiness due to vasodilation or vasovagal syncope. Also check for cardiac and central nervous system causes for this problem. Use tablet Vertin thrice a day for five days.

Use tablet Pantoprazole before breakfast for one week. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hi, I have a lump on the side of my neck under the skin. Pretty sure its a node but feels enlarged. Ive had a sore throat, but doesnt look red. Have been getting over bronchitis that started with cold symptoms and low grade fever for two days about 4 weeks ago.

With this group of symptoms - what would be your first course of action and first thoughts of possible diagnoses? swollen and tender glands/lymph nodes under chin and along collar bone, persistent cold sores at L nares that doesn t clear up with acyclovir cream, widespread muscle pains with some weakness in the hands and constant sinus drainage.
