    I have had this on and off for about 6 years. I believe mine is sore lymph nodes (they are located in the underarm s well as behind the knee and in the neck). My understanding is that this is a common symptom of CFS. Somedays it is a pulsating type of pain, other times it is a stabbing pain, and somedays nonexistent, but it's always the underarm lymphnodes.
    Hope this helps...

    I get them everywhere. Used to just be in the tops of my legs but not anymore.

    Lymph nodes are located in several areas of your body; head, neck, underarms, groin, chest, and abdomen. It could be that but not always if it's pertaining to fibro. I don't know much about fibro--although I have it--but my doc told me that much. Usually, there's a tenderness in an isolated area if it's pertaining to lymph.

    I have had this as well for 1+ years and went to docs many times complaining of a burning, stabbing pain more so in the left than right. I had numerous ultrasounds and mammograms which they found fibrocystic disease in breasts and even though the cysts were causing pain, this pain was a different burning. After the ultrasound came back clean, I finally diagnosed myself with FM and confirmed by rheumy. That pain lasted for a little over a year and has eased down but still flares every now and then if I overdo exercise.... Definately an uncomfortable pain though...

    are a symptom of lyme disease. Have you been tested for lyme or is there any chance you could have been bitten by a tick?

    I used to get stabbing pains and pains that felt like a bee was stinging me. I later tested positive for lyme.

    my underarm pain went down into my left side and i started getting pain like the pain i get from shingles. i thought that maybe they were connected. but lymph node pain makes more sense.
