I have swollen and painful lymph nodes in my arm pits for about a year. I have been on a few different antibiotics and not helped at all. I have Parkinson's disease and wondered if it was a part of the disease or should I get a second opinion as I was told it was nothing to be worried about.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
No,these lymp nodes are not associated with Parkinson's disease.Painful lymph nodes are due to infection or inflammation.I would suggest you to have intralesional steriods to settle the issue.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
