This answer was rated:

I drove about 5 hours yesterday and came home very late went to bed about 1:30 AM after taking a shower and I was woken up about 5:00am with arm pain in right arm. It feel like clicking like maybe I pulled something I don't know.
Hi--where all is the pain in your arm?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Where I would get a vaccination. It almost feels like I pulled a muscle or something it kind of like clicks and it is not a horrible pain or anything feels a little feverish in that area inside the arm area. And its not to noticeable after taking the Ibuprofen just seems maybe might be sore or something. I just don;t remember pulling anything yesterday but I was carrying luggage and bags. If I don't move it just feels warm.

Any pain in the shoulder especially when moving it? Is the muscle tender?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

doesn't feel like any shoulder pain. the muscle feels maybe a little tender.

not sure what it is to be honest with you. when I woke up it was kind of like clicking and then it hurt some. I don;t feel the clicking anymore after taking the Ibuprofen.

I did also have a little diarrhea this morning but its gone now. I ate a lot of salad the last few days.

Clicking as in the muscle was twitching?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Not muscle twitching but l like cartridge or bone clicking it was weird.
I am laying down right now and I noticed my right arm really doesn't have any place to rest so it hangs lower then the rest of my body unless I place it on my stomach. All I do know is impart its nothing serious I can't handle anymore medical issues. I am still trying to get the hemmoroid gone completely although it doesn't hurt it's just there. I am going to try and find away to rest the arm on a pillow or something at least making it where it is not hanging lower then the rest of my body. Because I don't have an area to rest it sometimes I sleep with my arm over my head and wake up with the arm aching from doing that and sometimes I am barely able to move it for a hour or so.
But absolutely no tenderness anywhere on the arm?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I don't feel any tenderness anywhere. I am really cold today for some reason. But if I worry about something I usually get cold. I feel a little tired from all the drinking the last two days 5 to 7 hours each day the last two days.
OK--this sounds like a pinched nerve in your neck and nothing too serious for now. You can try some ibuprofen and some capsaicin cream to the neck for now. It should resolve soon
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Thank you doctor I was hoping it wasn't heart issues. I don't have time for anything serious right now. So should I rub that on the arm as well or just neck?
Not your heart and you can put the cream on both the arm and the neck.

I noticed in my left breast I felt a little somewhat pain like a needle then gone and it happened about 3 times just a few minutes ago I chewed up a baby aspirin and it seems to have gone. Like I said for some reason I feel really cold today although it is very overcast and foggy here. Doesn't hurt when I breath or anything.
In the breast itself? How long did the pain last?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
in the breast itself. The sharpness maybe a millimeter of a second and gone then came again maybe two more times and gone. I had to get me a blower dryer I am cold. My hands and feet mainly. I like to warm up with a blow dryer sometimes I will wedge it between the bed and night stand and go to sleep with it blowing on me on low warm all night.
OK--still not your heart and could just be another nerve pinch. Nothing to worry about
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Thanks doctor. I took a chewable aspirin just in case and the pain never came back. But the blow dryer sure is warming and feels good.
Try not to worry about this

Hi Doctor,

The ache is still there a little bit in the same place and under my arm where the muscle is. No tenderness just feels like I have been working our or something and I haven' but I did carry some luggage and other items that were heavy some.

Still nothing much to worry about--just the nerve calming down and it will continue to get better. We need to close this page with a rating please
