Armpit pain and swollen, a week before this my massage therapist and i had frottage. Is this a symptom of hiv?
Probably not: A painful swollen area in the armpit (axilla) is often due to a swollen lymph gland or an abscess( collection of infection and pus). Hiv can cause swollen lymph glands but they are usually non-tender. You should see your physician to examen the area. If it is an abscess, a small incision, after numbing the skin, to let the pus drain will usually cure it. Don't attempt to do this yourself! ...Read more

I had an abortion a year and a half ago and now two weeks per month I still have severe breast and armpit pain. How can I get rid of it? Thank you.
Not related: The pain you describe would not be related to the procedure 18 months ago. What you describe may be breast pain due to fibrocystic breast disease (FCBD). That pain should improve with vitamin E. Vitamin E when taken for breast pain due to FCBD usually responds to doses of 800 to 1000 IU (international units) taken each day. Good luck. ...Read more

If they are both negative, and you do not feel morning sickness, then watch to see if the axillary (aka fancy term for armpit) pain would go away spontaneously. If it doesn't, then it's time to visit the healthcare professional for help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

BP management: If you are having pain during the daytime, perhaps it is related to muscular strain.

Since you have high BP, then regular check ups are indicated. ...Read more
