My armpits are killing me. First it was just my left one, but now it's both. I've tried heat, cold compress, everything I can think of. I have hard knots also. My b**bs are not sore at all. Could this be something related to my pregnancy?

I googled it and this was posted on yahoo... hope it helps. Sounds right.



If it hurts worse when you push on it, it's probably a swollen lymph node. These can be caused by a number of things. Usually, it means you're fighting off an infection (so, a cold or something like that). Sometimes they appear during pregnancy as a result of fluctuating hormones, too. My best friend had a swollen lymph node under her armpit for almost two weeks when she was pregnant. Finally, one day she woke up and it was gone. If it gets really hard, or if it's generally causing you stress (and therefore causing your baby stress), see a doctor. If it's nothing, then you'll know and stop stressing. If it is something, you will have caught it and be able to do something about it.

Definitely lymph nodes. You might be getting sick.

You have lots of lymph nodes in your arm pit area. Could be fighting off an infection... I actually get really sore under my left arm pit a couple days before I get sick with something like a flu or a cold. I have ever since I was a child. If it continues, I would see a doctor to make sure you don't have an infection in the lymph nodes.

It does hurt worse when any pressure is put on it. I see my midwife on tues hopefully she can let me know what's going on.

I don't feel sick, and I rarely get sick (last time was five years our so ago)
That would definitely suck :(

Now I'm paranoid, but at least I know what I'm looking forward to. My moms bf was sick and I spent the night there on thursday. I started hurting on friday.

it could also be a sort of pimple? I know a friend who had a sore knot under her armpit for a few days & when she squeezed it, it popped and went away.

I now have welps going down my left arm and the pain has only got worse. I've had a headache since I woke up and my arms hurt as well. I was going to wait till my appointment on tues, but I can barley move my arms. Fml
