Hi,
Pain in left side of breast & left underarm can arise from -
- nerve kinking due to spondelitis.
- Muscle pain,weakness/exertion
- weak bones due to vitamin D & calcium deficiency.
-Shoulder joint problem- arthritis/ tendonitis/bursitis
You will need consultation of an orthopedic doctor.few investigations like blood for S Vit.D, S Calcium /xray of shoulder/ spine will be needful.
After pin pointing cause specific treatment will help.
Thanks.

Hi, I m 31 years old female which is on average weight and active and it s been about 2 months now I m feeling a sharp pain in my hard but that s not it right after the sharp pain follows a numbing feeling on my left side finger tips and recently the same is happening on my thigh and toes. Yesterday something out of the blue happened, someone put me down so bad that I was heartbroken and angry but I kept it within and few seconds later I couldn t lift up my right arm, it was feeling very heavy and a sharp pain, everytime I lifted my arm my shoulder would hurt, is this linked to the heart? Thank you for your time

I am a 21 year old female with sciatic pain on the left side and sever pain in my hips when doing anything, my dr has given me Gabapentin as I also suffer from hypertension and duplex kidney so I cant take aspirin and ibuprofen or anything like that she has also given me tramadol which I can only take as a very last resort if the pain inst settling, I have tried all of the usual heat treatments and nothing is settling the pain, I work with young children so I am always bending and running around and it does effect my back as well but even when I have time off the pain gets no better. Is there anything you can suggest that will stop this pain as its causing me to be depressed and effecting my relationships with friends and family as I am constantly in pain I am not in the best mood. I just want the pain to stop. Id appreciate any advise thank you.

I am a 66 year old female. I weigh 175 lbs and I am 5 8 . I have a history of hypertension and heart disease. I had two stents placed in my heart in 2006. I have been having bloating and some pain in my back on the right side just below my rib cage. I had an abdominal ultra sound. The results are: ABDOMINAL ULTRASOUND, 06/28/11       HISTORY       Abdominal pain, gas and bloating.       COMPARISON       None available.       FINDINGS       The abdominal aorta is unremarkable measuring 2.9 cm. Liver measures 16.1       cm and demonstrates diffusely increased echogenicity with posterior       shadowing which would likely obscure an underlying subtle lesion. Common       bile duct measures 3.4 mm. Gallbladder wall thickness is 6 mm. Sonographic       Murphy s sign is negative. Pancreas is poorly visualized. The right kidney       measures 11.3 cm and is unremarkable. The left kidney measures 11.8 cm and       contains a 3 cm cyst. The spleen is suboptimally visualized but appears       grossly unremarkable measuring up to 9.9 cm. No free intraperitoneal fluid       is identified. My doctor has ordered a CT scan of my bladder. Do you think this is necessary? Because of my heart problems and medications I take, I am opposed to having any type of surgery unless it is a life and death situation. The pain I have is mild and I know that certain foods make the bloating worse. Do you think losing weight and changing my eating habits could possible make this go away on its own. I also have sleep apnea and sleep with a cpap machine. Thanks for any advice you can give me. Gayle

I have a boil under my breast (where band of bra sits). I went to the doctor last week (7 days ago) & was prescribed a 14 day antibiotic. She said the boil would drain by itself & my body would absorb puss. The boil is still very painful & now along the side of my breast, moving away from the boil, it is becoming pink and tender. Like the infection/ puss is moving?? (about a 4 to 5 inch area of breast) Just wondering if this is normal or if I should go back to the doctor. (I am also doing hot packs a few times a day & I had to get a topical pain reliever). Thank you.
