What causes pain below the left breast?

I have pain below my left breast. It is like a pins and needle pain, however it comes and goes. I had some allergy issues in the past two weeks and coughed quite a bit. I thought the pain was brought on by the coughing now I am not so certain. As the coughing has been stopped nearly a week, and the pain is not abating. What could this be?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You are having cough before 2 week.
Hence, because of excessive cough you can have muscle strain and so pain can be there. Your physical left breast examination should be done to exclude any organic cause if present.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi I have been getting pain in my left breast radiating to my shoulder and down my left hand. Also I squeezed my left breast and got just a tiny tiny droplet of discharge from it. My period is now finishing. Going to the GP tomorrow. What can this possibly be?

Pain in left breast more severe than normal pms swelling very tender to touch and came on quickly. Other sharp achy pain in some joints and increased stiffness,. Last week I had a sore throat but it was very localized and not in throat but rather the left side of neck under chin. That s condition has gotten better,but the breast pain has not. YYYY@YYYY
