Customer Question
Mild pain between by...

Mild pain between by breast in clevage area. Some mild pay on both under arms. I'm 4.5 months postpartum but stopped pumping 2 months ago. I have large breast like a 38DD and mildly overweight. I'm 5'9" and 185lbs

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

Pain in armpit area has been mild for a few weeks. Pain in breast/chest/clevage area started yesterday but I feel like it's worse today. I'm 34yrs old

Your symptoms are likely due to;

1) Muscular chest pain

2) Chest pain and arm pits pain due to pinched nerves in neck.

3) Costochondritis; it is inflammation at the junctions of rib and cartilage or with the breast bone / sternum. Local analgesic ointment, or spray, chest brace and warm compresses with Ibuprofen is helpful. Another possibility is muscle sprain. Please read about the costochondritis;

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/costochondritis/DS00626

4) Esophageal spasm.

In young females, heart disease is highly uncommon.

But the medical guidelines are to get an EKG and echocardiography for all the chest pain which is lingering or persisting. The chance of heart related issues in less than 1-2%, but that is worth enough for getting them for all.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Large breast can cause chest wall pain. Also this can be due to pinched nerves in the neck causing chest pain. Heartburn, acid reflux, esophageal motility disorder, hiatal hernia are the other causes of chest pain.
