Last Wednesday I woke up with tender lymph nodes under my arms. It was worse Thursday and progressed to really bad by Sunday. Not only are the lymph nodes under my arms swollen, but my breasts are very sore as well. Today, the nodes down the underside of my arms have become painful as well. This afternoon, I had serious discomfort in my chest and back that improved after I took extra strength Tylenol and sat still for an hour or more. I went to Urgent Care on Sunday and was told it was Lymphadenitis. The doctor there gave me 500 mg Amoxcicillin to take 3 times a day. But, it seems to be getting worse, not better. I feel awful. Headache, tired, and sore all over when I get up from lying down. What else can I do? When do I need to consider returning to a doctor? What kind of doctor?
