My girlfriend has these tender soft lumps under her armpits since 6 months, they developed right after her last SLE-flare. Her run-of-the-mill rheumatologist and dermatologist didn't know what to make of it and dismissed it as anything related to SLE. Her LLMD however did examine the lumps and believes it's not the lymph nodes but lymph-fluid being stuck, the lymph nodes themselves are not enlarged. Does anyone suffer from the same symptom or know what to do about it? She suffers from SLE + vasculitis and has been diagnosed with lyme disease as well.
