Suggest treatment for intermittent breast pain, sudden upper back pain near the shoulder joint and heaviness in the head
It doesn't seem to be related, further check-up is needed. Follow the advice.
Well, severe upper back pain near the shoulder joints can be due to spondylosis / spondylolisthesis as they are primarily nerve compression induced.
However, the right breast pain and those strange feelings don't seem to be related to this. It can be due to several other reasons (most notably, some lymph-node involvement, some other lump inside the breast or even hormonal). To diagnose the exact cause, she needs to be examined thoroughly.
I'd suggest you get her check-up done by any nearby General Surgeon. Some further investigations like ultrasonogram of the breast, mammogram study and a few others may also be needed.
In the meanwhile, let her take rest. Avoid sitting down for prolonged hours. Please refrain from any kind of strenuous activities. Use spine supporting collars/belts, continue taking the pain medications (eg. Gabapentin, Pregabalin etc.) for nerve related pain (as per her Orthopedician's advice for the spondylosis related problems).
Additionally, take a mild pain-killer i.e. Tab paracetamol thrice daily after food for the next 3-4 days. Avoid any kind of unsupervised massaging.
Hope I have answered your query.
