i have had a ache in my right shoulder at the front between coller bone and armpit area for approx 4 months, it seems to go away for a couple of days at a time occassionally. it feels worse on occassions when i breath in but not all the time and also feels worse when i reach forward to pick something up from floor or when i pull it inwards (if i pick something up from the left side of me with my right arm for example) other then that i have full movement with no problems. the worst its ever been is the day after i had been out for the evening and spent over 2 hours on the dance floor. i have had blood tests for inflammation and a full blood count which were all normal and am waiting physio therapy.
i have also had various other problems on and off but not as consistent as the shoulder problem
rib and sternum pains and tenderness
back and sides both upper and lower
neck ache occassional stiffness
heartburn and burping up nasty tastes
and re diagnosed with asthma this year due to low peak flow readings in morning and slight dry cough on waking.
like to hear from anyone with sugestions advice or similar problems.
kind regards to all and thankyou for reading

  • Has anyone ever suggested that you might have Thoracic Outlet Syndrome? I was dx'd about 5 years ago and am having some of the same symptoms as you. Do you have any swelling in your right arm...like all the way from your shoulder to your hand? Do your fingers get numb and tingly when you get cold? I also have a tremendous amount of pain in the axillary area (armpit), ribs, inside of arm, and my neck is killing me. Maybe an MRI might show something...anyone ever suggested that? Good luck! Hope you get a dx soon!
