Swollen glands, spreading, worried :(

Woke up Sunday with painful underarms, worked out it was my glands. In the evening I felt achy and shivery. Stayed off work the next day to rest. Went back to work Tuesday, arms still painful but not as bad as they were, all fine today until I get home and get changed and can see and feel painful lumps on groin area, glands again.
Googled a bit and says if one place its fine generally, by if its more than one location it's serious sad.

My underarm on the left is getting worse again now too.

Any ideas anyone?

As far as I'm aware, if glands are hurting it tends not to be serious. I think it's hard, painless enlarged glands in a number of areas that may be more sinister. STOP GOOGLING!!

I'd maybe so and see the GP for piece of mind. Have you had cold like symptoms too? Sounds a bit fluey

Might be Glandular Fever, you need to see your GP op.

Had aches and chills the first night the underarm glands came up. Then nothing after that for a couple of days until the groin ones came up,
