Suggest medication for lump under left armpit and left sided chest pain

I am a nearly 40 year old female...I was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis about 3 years ago through a right breast biopsy...when I was 22 I had an ablation for Wolfe Parkinson White Syndrome, I have had pericarditis and recently diagnosed with chronic lung disease and AFib with Syncope...I am now suffering with a lump under my left armpit and it is extremely painful and have some moderate left sided chest pain that radiates into my armpit on exhillation...could this be related to Sarcoid. i know it can affect the lymphatic system but so far it has not been involved. I also have an implanted loop recorder and was wondering if maybe that is causing some of my problems...any ideas would be appreciated...I am scheduled for an ultrasound of that armpit in the near future but was wondering if I should be worried especially with the chest pain...Thanks so much.

The lump under the forearm could be a gland. It could be due to infection since it is painful. It could also be due to sarcoidosis. An ultrasound is a must and if required, a fine needle aspiration biopsy should also be done to arrive at a diagnosis.

I have been experiencing chest pain. It started in the soft spot right under my sternum. First, I was having palpitations, then pressure would start to grow. Now I am experiencing pain on the left side of my chest right above the breast. It feels like a sharp steady pain. Comes on a few times a day. This has all developed in the past two months. I do not have enough money, even with my health insurance, to go to the emergency room. I do not smoke or drink. The only medications I am on are Birth Control pills. I ve been taking them for four years. For the past year I have been on Yaz. Is this serious or just a muscle pain?Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi i am a 31 year old female my height is 5 4 and my weight is 158. I have had severe left sided chest pain for going on almost six years now and i have tried it all. I have had a full heart work up, countless x-rays, acupuncture, physical therapy, narcotic therapy, intercostal nerve block, radio frequency ablation, trial spinal cord stimulator and many other things but nothing has helped my symptoms or situation. i also have some other medical issues i have GERD which i am on meds for, i have autonomic disorder, and had superior mensentary artery syndrome which i had surgery to correct. My symptoms get worse when i lay down or when i swallow or eat anything especially when it is cold. I have had two menomatries done to see if i had espohical spasms but i dont. I just want my life back and anything you could suggest would be helpful because my doctors and advanced pain management locally dont know what else to do. thank you

My 15 year old daughter has occasional severe lower abdominal pain. She will feel the need to urinate and then won t be able to. She ends up with severe pain, curled up in a ball crying. This happens to her about once a month or so. We have a urologist who has conducted every test there is (invasive and otherwise) and everything comes back as normal. Any suggestions on what our next step should be. We ve been with the urologist for about a year. She s seen a gynecologist and all tests were negative. She also saw a doctor to see if she had diabetes, again negative.
