I have been suffering from this anxiety for awhile. I have gone to the GP many times about this and they just dismiss it as a sore muscles or some other crap. But i've been getting this pain on my left and right breast area (I'm a guy) I think its where my lymphnodes are, but cant be sure. It hurts when I press down on it and it radiates from about the left of my nipple area up towards my collar bone near my shoulder. It comes around once a month and it alternates from my left side to my right side. Then sometimes i feel that under my armpit its swollen since i feel some discomfort when I put my arms down, but no pain. What is this pain I feel when I press? i did have unprotected sex (about a year ago) with my b/f who I have been dating for two years, but only for less than 5 minutes. Last time I got tested was Aug 2011. always been safe besides that. I/m worried that this pain when I press down that occur every month is a sign of HIV! and the "swelling" which I cant visually see but can feel is due to the virus. Is this possible? I'm just freaking out that these lymphnodes on my chest / breast / armpit areas are letting me know that I have HIV. I also had a sore throat as well and hurts right in the middle of my throat. I'm mainly worried about the pain i get on my left and right chest in between my breast amd my underarm leading up to my collarbone. Can someone please help me and let me k now if this is something that is HIV related. I;ve had no fevers, only once but went away within a few hours and I did not have sex during them time I got this fever. I think its my anxiety and hypochondria, but can someone please help!
