hello my armpits are uncomfortable and sometimes i do feel pain.i have been feeling for lumps and have not noticed any.once a doctor felt under my armpits and said this was muscle comes and goes.what could really be causing this

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi There are lymph nodes present in your armpit area and when you are ill one of the areas the doctor can feel for swollen lymph nodes are in the area as well as your neck. Lymph nodes can be swollen for many different reasons not just HIV. You can also have muscle soreness from activity. The important thing is that if these symptoms continue to follow up with your health care provider.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
