Avatar f tn It feels like I have a tennis ball under my arm and I have to hold my arm at an angle. The pain is worse in the mornings and when I raise my arm up to stretch, but never goes away completely. I don't have any cuts or nicks of any kind anywhere and I do not have a cold or any other illness. Wondering if this is something that needs immediate attention or if it is just a reaction to something that my body is fighting?
Avatar n tn However, in reading your thoughts on Breast rash, I noticed for a while that I have a rash under my left breast. On my initial visit to the M.D. I failed to mention this to him. Again, today after the biopsy I being very anxious had other questions but did not present my concern about the rash. I am in my mid-50's have a history of fibroid cystitis but never anything more serious.

No swelling or lumps detected. Compromised immune system. Raised ESR's showing low grade fever normal for me. 9 years mammograms free of change.

Avatar f tn I sometimes experience shoulder pain, pain radiating to my left breast and tingling pain in my thumb. I don't know if taking vitamin B12 and using ice and cold patches will be good for you but they certainly help me. Maybe you can ask your doctor before trying. I hope and pray for your fast recovery.
Avatar n tn Thank God for mammos. My only symptom was a pain radiating from my armpit down to my wrist - like an electric shock, and I never thought to go to the GP. I had the tumour removed, and then went back a month later for all the axillary lymph nodes removed. Had to have chemo and radiotherapy as there was concern that the cancer had already spread to other organs. I had bone, live and chest scans and all okay. You really to know the status of your axillary nodes - go back to your surgeon and ask!
Avatar f tn I talked to her even more about the arm pain issue because after seeing the DR the night before the burning has now spread to the area right above my left breast. She examined me again, and basically said the same thing as the DR and said that there is nothing to her that indicates any cardiovasculer issue to her. We discussed my anxiety in length too.
Avatar n tn ULTRA SOUND, anything I thought do not give up on me, my pain is real, this pain is new to me. I had my youngest brother ignore his pain, until it sent him to the Hospital, by then he was diagnosed with terminal Pancreatic Cancer, he was diagnosed in early Nov. passed away Dec.23, 2006, he had just turned 44yrs old. If there is anything going on I want to catch it early, if you know what I mean.
Avatar f tn My pain started on Friday morning around 10a.m., pain is intermittent radiating from anterior forearm and elbow, up through tricep (all of which is dull, ache with burning sensation and occasional stabbing sensation) through entire shoulder region, to upper front right chest above breast and complete thru clavicle, to back at right shoulder blade, leaving me to think there is a knot just under my blade but nobody can find or feel it, but it feels like it to me.
Avatar n tn I am still nursing my child, and this isn't mastitis. For six months I've had stabbing pains in my left breast. I also feel some pain radiating down my arm now and then. I also feel this heaviness, like sometimes it is painful to breathe. I even went to the ER (first time ever) in April, thinking I was having a heart attack. They said it was anxiety with the pending surgery. I've read about IBC, but I have absolutely no visual changes in my breast, just this pain!
Avatar n tn in the breast, where fluid builds up in the ducts and glands and causes discomfort. Pain radiating to the underarm from the breast is pretty common. Some things that help the pain of fibrocystic breasts is eliminating caffeine, taking vitamin E, wearing good support, even at night. It's typical for a mammogram to be not useful at your age.
Avatar n tn Occasionally, noncyclic pain may be caused by a fibroadenoma or a cyst (Both benign findings) that may appear on further testings such as a mammogram/Ultrasound or MRI. (if needed). Other reasons for pain in the breast radiating to the arm and back could be due to gastric problem or pectoral muscle injury that can happen with certain exercises or arm overuse.
Avatar n tn I have a swollen left breast and swelling under my arm. I also have radiating pain from my breast all the way down my left arm. Could this be breast cancer?
Avatar n tn In intercostals neuritis there is inflammation of the nerve between the ribs and radiating to the chest. Heart and lung problems can also lead to pain in ribs. Some abdominal problems like gallbladder stones; liver disease all can cause referred pain on right side of chest. Seek medical help. A clinical examination and investigations will help. Keep us posted. Best of luck and regards!
Avatar n tn I stopped sleeping on that shoulder but it has continued to worsen. Now, I have a HUGE numb/pain feeling in R upper arm (breast level), some shoulder & forearm pain, and much pain in my palm and wrist. I have NO neck or back pain. Co-workers have suggested a chiropractor or neurologist but I couldn't get an appt w/ a neurologist for 2 months. Any ideas for possible diagnosis? Any other recommendations than just waiting for appt?
211940 tn?1267884866 I finally caved in and decided to have carpal tunnel release surgery in the right hand (even though the doctor said it was well advanced and may not relieve the pain in my arm if there is damage to the nerve). I am happy to say that the pain in my upper arm and the numbness in my hand is completely gone! It's been a long time since I was able to sleep all night, it's amazing, and no more wearing braces on my arms to bed which did little to relieve the symptoms anyway!
Avatar n tn These posts are the only thing that keep me from running to the doctor every time I have a chest/arm pain. For the last 7 years I have had on and off episodes of chest pain, arm pain, shortness of breath, racing heart, fatigue, etc. After several EKG's over the years, my symptoms too have been diagnosed as anxiety related. I took Lexapro for 9 months which seemed to help tremendously. I went off it in May and now the physical symptoms are creaping up on me again....
Avatar n tn It feels like a burning pain usually in the center of my chest radiating through to my back and up into my throat. Sometimes I get a sharp pain beneath my left breast and at the top of my rib cage. The last few days my left arm has been achy, more so at night. Sometimes the pain reaches all the way down to my hand and fingers. I've also noticed a couple (canker?) sores in my mouth--I don't know if they are related since I occasionally get them if sick/stressed.
Avatar f tn Lump on upper arm..radiating pain under breast, along right side of rib cage and upper arm. Doctor sent me for Breast Exam two years ago when it wasn't too painful, nothing found. Just one month ago, had to get mole removed and sent for testing from my leg. All my bloods are 'normal'. But the pain in my arm is getting worse. Doctor says it may be a cyst on a nerve. Should I get a second opinion or does it sound like a cyst? Thank you for your help.
Avatar n tn He also said that he punctured a gland and that is why I had this terrible pain in the breast radiating to the back.(I had a muscle in a knot below my shoulderblade, in spasm). The thing is now, I do not trust anyone!I am scared to death and do not believe anything any more.Should this cyst be removed or not?
Avatar n tn What could be causing me to have burning and aching in my breasts around the outside of them radiating all the way around and towards my arm pit ?? Don't know if their is any history of breast cancer in my family or not. Mother is deceased. So I have know way of knowing. Would appreciate any kind of response. Thank You !
Avatar n tn The pain which is almost never associated with breast cancer may be felt in only one breast or may be felt as a radiating sensation in the under-arm region. The pain may also be a result of hormones received from contraceptive methods (i.e. birth control pills). Try to avoid caffeine (coffee,chocolate colas etc..) because it can increase your breast pain.
Avatar n tn , level 8-10) as if a knife was plunged into the center of my bicep. When the pain happens, I have to use my right arm to pick up the left arm and move it into a neutral position down and in front of me. Depending on how intense the episode was, it can take anywhere from 5-10 seconds for the pain to subside and disappear completely. The pain happens when I lift my arm into certain positions (i.e., overhead presses especially when my arm lifts next to my head or behind my head).
