COPD Question

Does anyone have constant pain in their ribs & mid back area & painful lymph glands down side under arms?

At least it feels like my ribs hurt but my Dr. dismisses the pains as note being associated with COPD. He has ordered a CT scan of my chest but that's not until Mid February so I continue to fret about this. Especially those so very tender & sore lymph glands.
Anybody have this or heard of it?
