Sharp pain in arm pit and right breast, feel like bee stinging. Have Fibromyalgia. Suggestion?

I have back trouble and fibromyalgia . Lately I have been getting a sharp pain many times a day in my air pit that feels like a bee is stinging me. It lasts 4-10 seconds each time. Sometimes the pain goes into my right breast and other times it goes under and down my right arm . It is becoming more and more frequent. I ve experienced the bee sting effect in other parts of my body but it leaves quickly and doesn t return in that same spot for long periods of time. Should I be worried?

thank you for your query.
fibromyalgia has widespread musculoskeletal stiffness and pain, in conjunction with specific tender points, generalized fatigue, and sleep disturbance.
the pain is located in specific tender points.hence there will be pain and increased sensation called as allodynia only in specific spots and not throughout the body.

Treatment includes-

-medications, behavioral modifications, patient education, diet and exercise.

-Some special ingrediants such as SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine), a naturally occurring substance which has been shown to reduce the pain, fatigue, and stiffness of fibromyalgia for some patients.

-also try to take epsom salt baths.

-and most importantly exercise is necessary.Try Gentle stretching and low-impact aerobic exercises, such as walking and swimming.

there is no permanent cure for fibromyalgia but following all the above steps reduces the pain and heightened sensitivity.

thank you,
wishing you good health
