    What causes pain in left upper torso under the armpit?

Hi, for the past week I have been experienceing a weird pain/sensitivity on my left uppper torso under the armpit area which extends around my shoulder blade at the back and sometimes on the left side of my pectoral muscle. I say sometimes because the intensity if the pain shifts from one place to another in the areas mentioned above. I have been taking strong ibuprofen and this seems to help but the discomfort and pain comes back everyday. It is more noticeable when I move these areas of my body. Can you please help?

Hello,

There are many medical conditions related to the pain that you are feeling. One of the common causes can be a muscle strain. I suggest using Baclofen three times a day.

I also suggest using a magnesium supplement and warm compresses in the area of the pain.

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

Take care
