I have pain going on and off for two years in my left breast, all the way around my back and armpit and upper arm. The pain varies in intensity and nature. could be stinging, pulling, throbbing. Happens for about a moth and then disappears and returns again months later. breast ultrasound shows nothing.

Hi,

I feel it's spondylitis problem in upper thoracic spine causing nerve pressure and Neutrogena pain or muscle pull in particular node position. A plain X-ray or MRI, if indicated would confirm the cause followed by specific treatment. You can try mild back extension exercises till then.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Vasudha Jayant Athavale, General & Family Physician
