It could be your glands or yes FM...

I have these *triggerpoints* around and under the arm pit and if u press them the pain will shoot as you would have hit the nerves.

Best to get it checked with GP as a precaution

I sometimes find a day or so after shaving my arms I get little lumps, deep under the skin. I went to my GP and she said mine were caused by shaving/then deodorant. But you can get myofascail trigger point lumps in your arms, so maybe its that?
