How can i relive the Pain under arm ?

I ve been on the HCG diet . About a week ago I had to quit taking the drops because I was not drinking enough water with them. My inner thighs and areas under my armpits were swelling up. I still have a pain, like a bruise or tissue pain under my right arm where my bra strap hits. I ve been drinking a lot of water and the swelling is down but the pain is still there. I don t currently have Health Insurance and I m on a pretty tight budget. I don t want to have to go to a doctor if I don t have too. Do you have any idea what it is?

Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
HCG is a Hormone produced by women during pregnancy. Since you are taking HCG you are experiencing the signs and symptoms of Pregnancy like swelling, pain, breast tenderness, these are not healthy signs and one of the serious side effects is OHSS (Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome). So, stop taking HCG diet, your symptoms will subside on their own. If you really want to burn calories and reduce weight, The best way to deal with the problem is to exercise regularly and develop healthy dietary habits. Make changes to your lifestyle and say no to weight gain. Take Care
