sore under armpits into breasts

User Profile
I have quite a strange sensation in both armpits extending into the sides of my breasts. I know i have a Breast fibroadenoma in my left breast and i have been examining myself alot; not sure if i am becoming obsessed as i am terrified that i have been misdiagnosed.
The sensation is like someone has placed something in my armpits, but i cannot feel any lumps, it is getting me down to be honest. My whole upper torso aches, including my shoulders.

My breasts seem tender all of the while as well.

I did really Bang my back about 10 days ago so i am wondering if it is something to do with that as it did not bruise, but was a very bad bang.

I am definately not pregnant as i have no fallopian tubes, I am 36 yrs old. Worried.

Hi Lynnetripmum and welcome to ehealth: How about shaving your underarms....I have had this happen before...One more thing being the deodorant...I have had times when my own deodorant bothered me...Kind of a burning...I am not saying that this is the problem, but that you may be able to eliminate a few things that it could be by going this route....I hope it gets better or else have it checked out...Take care...

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be due to nerve entrapment in the axillary region. I would suggest you to take pregabalin and look for the response.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
