For past 3 months I've been experiencing pain in my left armpit. It comes and goes. Sometimes it's more in my underarm, sometimes on the side of my left breast, sometimes high up in the armpit. Only aware of it at night when I wake up to go the bathroom.

By day when I'm busy, I am unaware of it. What could be the cause? Otherwise fit and healthy with no health problems.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Pain under the arm pit that is not due to a muscle, tendon, or nerve injury can often be caused by a blockage or infection in the lymph node.
If the pain persists, I highly suggest you see a doctor.
