Weird pain....

Hey girls, I know this is going to sound kinda weird but pain in the armpit area? Around my collarbone and above my right breast, it is very tender and aches. It has been doing this for about 3 days. The pain has actually started to move to my shoulder...pulled muscle or what.? It feels swollen, anyone know anything about this, or am I just losing it. LOL Would love any info on this. I don't want to whine to my doc unless I have to

Weird pain....

Hi ((Shygirl)) <--love your username
I have been having pains in my upper right arm, thru my neck & shoulder that extends to right underneath my armpit also...
Mine started out as what I thot was pain from my Carpal Tunnel & maybe it was just extending to those areas. In Feb of this yr., I had a strange rash that appeared on the palm of my right hand, it seemed to be related to the pain as it had increased since the rash. When I called my Dr, they assumed it was from my CTS wrist splints that I slept in nightly so they told me to discontinue their use until they seen me. When the time came for my appt, the rash was almost gone but the pain had only worsened. They sent their Neurologist in who examined the area, asked some questions concerning the rash/pain. He dx'd it as shingles & prescribed some meds for it. Well, the months go by & I continue to experience this pain that has left my arm almost immobile. They then dx'd it as Post-Herpatic Neuralgia-a chronic pain condition caused by shingles & the damage it does to the nerves. The pain & symptoms only continued to worsen despite various meds, treatments...I am then DX'd w/ RSD that had begun to spread into my neck, shoulder & upper chest. Seems that all along, from Feb until about July-Aug..the nerves were becoming more damage & the RSD had already developed. I underwent Sympathetic Blocks to help calm the *Sympathetic nerve* unfortunately that only worsened my pain. There is no cure for RSD & not a lot is known but it can arise from the slightest trauma to an area. Most commonly the arms & legs. Here are a few links describing it & it's symptoms:

This is probably not what is cusing your own pain but you just never know I wanted to share b/c our sympoms were similar.
Good Luck in finding some answers Pls keep us posted...(((hugs)))
