I have pain in my right arm as well as a burning sensation, (sometimes like a pinching or needle stick). I have pain when I raise my arm up and to the side and at times I have to put a blanket on because the air conditioner makes that arm cold and almost numb. I feel uncomfortable on my right scapula area when I am reclining in a chair. It feels like a knot or something but you can't see anything. I have had pain in my right breast and shoulder area but had a mammogram done to rule out breast cancer, (I have fibrotic cysts in my breast). I sometimes feel swollen in all these areas especially if I am under a lot of stress. A couple of months ago I had two fingers on my left hand go numb and went to have an MRI done but by the time the Dr saw me to tell me the test results, the pain was gone. He told me the test showed a degenerative cervical disc was causing a pinched nerve and to come back if it happens again and he would treat it. This is a different problem but does this seem like it could be from a degenerative disc or should I go to someone else.
Thank you, Alice
