Since Friday, I have had a lump in my armpit. This has happened before in the other armpit (is there a more feminine word for armpit? It sounds gross.) and has gone away within a week. The one I have now is horrible. I talked to my mom this weekend, and she said it is either a clogged gland or my lymphnode. Whatever it is, it kills. It is so large, it is protruding from my under-arm. When I shift into 2nd gear in my car, I get a shocking pain. Every time I move my arm, it hurts. Heck, Todd had to help me out of my shirt tonight.
I know I should have it looked at. It aches all day long.
So I dont know what to do. Should I try to get a rush appointment with any doctor who will take me within the next few days or suck it up until Monday when I have my Internal Medicine appointment? In the past when this has happened, by the time I got to the appointment, it was gone (and the doctor said that sometimes this happens around that time of the month.) But as I mentioned, this one is the worst one I've ever had.
I dont normally complain about pain unless it's REAL BAD. I havent taken anything for the pain which Todd keeps telling me I should. I dont know what to do...but it hurts.
((My apologies in advance for sounding like a whining baby.))
