Swollen lymphnodes in armpit and groin, tiredness with pain. Symptom of hypothyroidism?

Hello! I have had swollen lymph nodes in my armpit and groin for 1 month. I have also felt a bit tired over this time. I have had blood tests that have come back inconclusive. I have also had a biopsy of one node in my left armpit (found when getting a routine breast exam) - biopsy came back negative for cancerous cells. However, despite the tests my armpits and groin continue to hurt and I can feel the nodes under my skin. I have Hashimoto s Disease and wonder whether this is a common symptom for hypothyroidism . Thank you for any advice you can provide!

lymph node in groin and armpit is not related to hashimoto's thyroiditis. your tiredness can be related to this. every possible source of infection to be ruled out first. if any source identified then appropriate antibiotic to be used . if not regress go for excision biopsy again. consult a surgeon.
