  • Male 42 Strange thing, I have a similar pain under the arm but it is located on the body side not the arm side. It comes on with stress and leaves me dizzy. It happens most often when I am run down, tired, hungry. I have no idea what it is either. Feels like a swollen lymph node. If you have any luck finding out please fill in, I will also keep you posted

  • Hi, I can totally relate to you. I have been experiencing pain under my left arm as well. I am 5 months pregnant and my left breast began to swell up much larger than the right. I had the swollen lymph node for about two after my first child. Now I’m getting this annoying pain and breast swelling since my second trimester. I had an MRI done and it showed about an inch thickening of tissue in my left breast. They put me on two different kinds of antibiotics and in addition I had a biopsy done. The biopsies came back clear but I’m still experiencing the swollen lymph nodes and my breast swelling has not gone down that much. I am still going to seek a 3rd 4th and as many opinions until I get a solid answer to my condition. I know we look to doctors for answers concerning our health but we have to be more active and involve with our own health. Not all doctors are experienced with certain conditions so they are use to just dismissing problems they have no clue about or misdiagnosing you. I am doing my own research, looking on line for other people who have the same condition as I do. Hope you find the answers you are looking for also have faith and a keep appositive outlook.

  • I am a 47 year old male who also experiences pain on the underside of my left arm. when I get this pain, it extends to numbness in my hand and a cool sensation in my hand as well. If I stop what I am doing, and raise my hand over my head, the numbness, coolness and pain all subside. However, this pain is regular and i experience it several times daily.I have thought it was a compressed nerve or some other nervous condition.
