Pain in the armpit and ribs. Neuroma?

I have sensitivity and electric shock type pain at back of my armpit. I also have similar pain over my left ribs - pain management thinks the pain on the left might be a neuroma subsequent to breaking 6/7 ribs 2 years ago. I am having an intercostal injection in a couple of weeks but it is my right armpit that is worrying me.
