I have had these pains for going on three years. It starts like a tingling sensation under my arm pit area and will go down my sides or down my arm. It starts with a tingling, like light bee stings and before it's done it's like an electrical shock! It takes my breath away? So far the doctors have no idea except to say they have never heard of this problem. Please tell me I am not the only one in the world with these pains? :(

  • Initial thought...have you had an MRI/CT/X-ray done of your spinal cord to check for areas of compression?

  • I have never had any test ran? The pain has been so bad at times I had to go to the emergency room where they gave me Naproxen and sent me home. I have talked to my doctor about this several times and he says to keep taking the Naproxen. I can go months at a time with no pain and then for no reason it starts up and will last for days or weeks. It has been on both sides of my body but never at the same time? Please help!!
