I have had trouble with swollen lymph nodes in the past, but lately it has been pretty persistant. At least I think it is the lymph nodes. I've had trouble swallowing, my throat isn't sore at all...I just can't swallow. I thought at first it was a food allergy but it doesn't go away. Also my armpits have been swollen and extremely painful. Does anyone have trouble with this? I don't seem sicker than normal so I don't know if it is a viral infection or what. I feel kind of silly going to the doctor because my armpits hurt.

I think I'd call the doc - swollen lymph nodes can be painful (as you know!) and they can also be the sign of something going on in your body - you may have an ifnection, or be fighting one off.

Gentle hugs!
