I have been hurting...

I have been hurting under my right armpit and it goes all the way down to my fingers. When it gets to my fingers they start tingling.

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

A couple weeks. I haven't paid attention to what makes it better or worse. I have been to 4 doctors this week and they have given me an exam checking my armpit and my breast and they have all told me they don't feel anything abnormal.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My grandma is the only one that has been diagnosed with breast cancer at 63.

I am 30 years old. I had a chest x ray and it was normal. I have a reversed cervical lordosis. I also have anxiety and depression. I lost my husband 2 years ago to cancer and it just really scares me.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have also had all kinds of test done with heart as well.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
My doctor has also done blood work including a CBC and all my numbers were normal.

I see.

I am sorry you have bad anxiety and depression symptoms

this can magnify symptoms and make you worried

increased exercise, stretching, yoga could help you improve range of motion and help take away this pain and tingling

yoga and exercise are good to help decrease anxiety and depression as well.

If my lymph nodes were swollen would the doctors be able to feel it?

I am just scared of getting breast cancer since my grandma had it.

yes, your doctors would be able to feel them if you had enlarged lymph nodes

don't be scared to getting breast cancer

focus on exercise and eating healthier

and cutting out carbs out of your diet.

no near term worries.

pulse ox is ok

you should talk to your doctor about medication treatment which could help your anxiety and depression symptoms

medications like paroxetine, fluoxetine can help decrease anxiety and depression symptoms.

I am on effexor and Klonopin.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have an app on my phone that I keep track of my periods and I noticed last month I was 5 days earlier do you think this has anything to do with it.

bad anxiety symptoms can cause your periods to be a bit irregular

your periods would not have anything to do with your arm pains.
