I wanted to ask if any of you had ever had burning/pulsing (about as painful as having AF) pain in outer side of your breast that went up to the top of armpit that then radiated down to your elbow and felt like deep/hot/burning aching pain, almost like it was running through your veins and you could feel it pulsing? My right breast/arm is doing this, all day today. Although advil took the edge off, each "surge" at the beginning is like having period cramps. If I push on arm muscles in areas where it "aches" they don't hurt, so I don't believe its muscular. I've had this for 7 hours straight today and I have had two very brief (5 min or less) versions of this in the last two weeks. Ironically I've never truly had breast problems (beyond the occasional sharp pains that I think were related to my menstrual cycle) until october when my doc agreed this thickened ridge under rt breast was suspicious, so she sent me for mammo because I do NOT have dense breasts, but the radiologist says "no we don't do mammos on women your age, but we'll do a sono", they did and the tech hemmed and hawed and said she "had to go get radiologist" and brought him back to look and he said it looked fine (the u/s) but wanted a mammo, DUH that is what my doc ordered in the FIRST place! Anyways, they did that too, then afterword the tech went to see radiologist and came back w/a piece of paper that had a box checked "No signs of cancer" and said they'd just give me this slip instead of mailing it to me. That was over a month ago. No one has ever told me what it is if its nothing serious, then what IS it!? Even my doc keeps forgetting to tell me. I'm being worked in today about the pain I'm having, but has anyone else had it? Also I am trying to get pg and nipples are sensitive but I'm only 10 dpo (or what I suspect as ovulation as I am not sure I o'd at all) and have been on met a month so I am no longer sure how long my cycles are/will be. Whew I talk too much
Any info would help me get thru the next two hours until my appt!!
