In brief: No

Swollen lymph nodes under armpits suggests a more systemic problem. You need to see a doctor.

In brief: No

A urinary tract infection could cause bodyaches, but i doubt it would be responsible for enlarged axillary lymph nodes.
More than likely some other condition is going on to account for these lymph nodes. Conditions can co-exist together. Look for something other than UTI to explain the nodes.
