I first experienced HS after having my son 4 months ago, never had any symptoms before. At 5 days old he was admitted to hospital with meningitis, then again at 2 weeks old as he had a UTI in which MRSA was found in his bladder. I developed the first lumps under my armpit sometime in between, however, i was breastfeeding & put it down to that. Last month i decided i couldnt put up with the pain anymore, they were so frequent, i was getting new ones every day & they were really getting me down so i went to my dr who diagnosed HS. She gave me antibiotics which did actually seem to work. The past week however, i have had several new lumps appear which have gradually got bigger & bigger. They look like one huge lump now, maybe twice the size of a golf ball. Im in agony. I couldnt sleep at all lastnight with the pain. Throughout the day i have noticed i can hardly lift my arm, there are red blotches going down my arm away from the site, my arm feels dead & i have pins & needles in my hand. I feel like im coming down with something too. I have a drs appointment for friday but just wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this before?
