    These days I've been getting pain under my arms. Nothing's swollen, and there is no pain if I put pressure there, but I'll just be relaxing and they'll be pain under the arm, probably in the muscle? All I know is I barely exercise at all, masturbation basically is the only "work out" I get....anyone have an idea as to why this is happening?

    I don't know, but I just wanted to say I have that same problem sometimes. It kind of freaks me out.

    Is it really under the arm or more "in" the shoulder?
    If you stand still and grab something over your head (imagine you're trying to pick an apple that you can barely reach from a tree) or if you stretch out your arms in front of you and do a steering wheel motion .. do you notice the pain then as well?

    For me it's just like below the armpit. Like from the armpit down, and I mean technically I'd think it's lymph nodes but they aren't swollen. It's just random pain...

    Yeah that what I was thinking it was. Just random lymph node pain.

    I don't like the idea that my lymph nodes are randomly hurting. I mean is this a sign of HIV? I mean I've had pain before and it's just to be clear, my doctor also declared I have very low muscle strength....like non-existent. He told me to actually hit the gym....

    I think I might know the other possible reason people, because of being a hypochondriac I'm always checking for swollen lymph nodes and by doing so I'm pressing down underneath my arms FREQUENTLY and remember there's the nodes, tendons, muscles, nerves, that altogether I think basically is just causing pain because the nerves are inflamed from too much prodding.

    I do not know. If you think it may be a sign of HIV infection then get tested immediately.
