I am having bad pain underneath my right armpit. It hurts worse whenever I lift my arm up and or i tighten my breast/chest muscle. It is also causing pain to shoot through my arm, shoulder and back. It is continuesly getting worse. Any ideas or advice would be wonderful. Thank you.
By the way I’m 23 years old and diabetic.
You have a lymph gland that more than likely is swollen you need to have it examined, it may be infected.

The pain is sharp, it starts somewhere around the beltline, then radiates upward through the ribcage along the left side of the body and into the neck. The pain comes with deep breaths or quick movements, and is getting worse. Does anyone have any idea what this could be? Our first though was just a pulled muscle, but as the pain gets worse we are wondering. The symptoms are happening to a 34 yr old male, no previous conditions to speak of, and no recent activity that he can remember that would have caused this pain. Help please!
ER NOW Chew 2 asprin on the way this can be symptoms of a heart problem. People think all heart pain is exactly in the left side of the chest. It isn’t. It can manifest in abdomen, neck, arm. The quicker this is checked out the better. If it is heart related it could be a blockage or a warning that a heart attack is trying to happen or likely to happen. If it is heart related fast diagnosis and treatment could save his life and keep an actual heart attack from happening.
It could be a lot of other things but good sense and sound medical practice says check out the most serious and urgent possibility first and work from there.

I am running to lose weight and to join the military. I run every morning but my muscles in my legs are killing me. I tried to take a day or two break but when I went back to running it seemed to be worse. I don’t want to stop running. My body is wanting to continue to run but my legs will not. I have tried Ice hot rub and pain meds and nothing helps much for the actual run. Any advice?
Some one told me that protein shakes help with muscle pain. I have tried protein but the mix tastes horrible and it makes me sick to my stomach.
Stretch before and after you run. How far are you running maybe take shorter runs and build up more slowly? Sounds like you are over exerting your muscles. Try walking instead of running for a few days until your muscles recover and then slowly get back into the running.

I don’t think anything is broken, but am having serious pain in my arm, hip, and back. I am considering going to a doctor, but don’t want to go over a bruise. Is there any harm in waiting to see if the pain gets worse?
yes, if it ends up a serious injury your employer is going to want to know why you waited so long and you could be denied benefits, go see a doctor asap,,,I have been there, don’t take chances..

I started Wellbutrin @ 150mg 1 week ago, I was to take 300mg for this this week and then increase to 450mg. I took the 300mg last night and my leg pain is worse. I’ve not hurt it in any way that I know of. The calf muscle hurts so much I can’t walk on it this morning. I don’t want to quit the Wellbutrin and if this is the cause, will this side effect eventually go away?
I don’t know about wellbutrin, but i was on prozac, large dose, back when it first came out, and I got such horrific joint and muscle pain, that i ended up in a rhuematology clinic, getting worked up for all sorts of things, like fibromyalgia, arthritis, etc. — but once they researched my meds, they discovered a then, unknown side effect, which was this sort of pain. Once they d/c’d the medicine, it was just a matter of days before those crippling symptoms disappeared. Good luck !
