Right Tricep / Armpit burning sensation - MRI is all clear. Had pain now for 3 months on and off, I weight train regularly and have no pain during training but the pain is worse the next day...also the burning is worse when I am seated / driving and better when I am standing / walking suggesting some kind of (nerve) compression. Took 3 weeks of gym but no real improvement in symptoms. My orthopaedic surgeon has dismissed nerve damage as I have no numbeness or pain in the hand? I ve seen a Physio who thinks it might be a compression of the braxial plexus or perhaps adhesions on the ulnar nerve.....please help!?

Your symptoms are suggestive of a pinched nerve. For this reason, I would recommend consulting with a neurologist and performing a nerve conduction study. Inflammation tests (complete blood count, PCR, sedimentation rate) are necessary too. Pregabaline or gabapentine could be a possible treatment option to help improve the pain. Hope you will find this answer helpful! Kind regards!
