Thank you for replying

I am sorry to hear this, indeed this could be secondary to you recent infection.

Lymph nodes change with recent infection, therefore this could be expected, but you could get a blood test to ensure there is nothing else going on and get someone to listen to your chest, as secondary bacterial infections are not uncommon, therefore antibitocs could be needed.

No problem.

Could this be unrelated to covid?

I get worried if achy lymph nodes occur especially in the armpit?
Customer: replied 14 days ago.
but I do seem to be achy in both the right worse than the left

It could, but given the recent infection, seems COVID is more likely the cause.
