What can cause shoulder pain in front of the clavicle on the left side when sitting having back support? And no pain when standing or laying

Unclear: I'll say that "in front of the clavicle" close to the breastbone is the sternoclavicular joint. The pectoralis major muscle attaches to the "front" of the clavicle, but i've never seen a strain of that muscle hurt in that location. Other small ligaments and muscles attach to the clavicle, but i just can't imagine anything that causes pain only when sitting. ...Read more

My left clavicle and upper chest area and have been numb for approx. 1 1/2 week. What could be the cause? Should I see a doctor or see if it goes away

Depends: You don't give your age or situation. The commonest cause might be a local peripheral nerve injury if you have had a fall or blow. However, if you are old enough to have any kind of arthritis, this could represent a spin injury for example from a compression fracture or a disc. If the latter, then you should be seen before any other effects occur. And for heaven sakes, no snow shoveling! ...Read more

Recently I've lost weight and my neck on the left side just above the collarbone is sticking out much more than usual. What would cause this ?

See a physician: This could be a normal anatomic variant but you need to rule out issues like thyroid tumors or other malignant issues. These will not be the most common things that are most likely causing your symptoms, but unexplained weight loss and swelling on side of neck, need to rule out dangerous issues first. ...Read more

What is the most likely cause of a left side swollen painful clavical with a non itchy red rash?

Shingles: Shingles (herpes zoster) is a painful, blistering skin rash due to the varicella-zoster virus, the virus that causes chickenpox. After you get chickenpox, the virus remains inactive (becomes dormant) in certain nerves in the body. Shingles occurs after the virus becomes active again in these nerves years later. See your doctor for treatment. ...Read more

My neck vein above my left collarbone is always very visible almost bulging w/pulse. I've never had this before. What could cause this ?

My neck vein above my left collarbone is always very visible almost bulging w/pulse. I've never had this before. What could cause this ?

Normal variant?: It's possible that it could be a narrowing of the vein between there and the heart, or a clot in the vein, but either of those would be extremely unlikely in a healthy 20 year old man without a significant surgical history. The more likely cause is that it is just a normal variant. We all have a little abnormality or asymmetry with one thing or another. ...Read more

Can anxiety cause tingling by your collarbone? or something more serious? I had pain in one of.my fingers also but it.wrnt away it's on my left side

Anxiety sensations: Anxiety can cause one to tense up their muscles and by doing so, can cause some tingling sensations like you describe. It seems, you have some form of anxiety as you are prescribed clonazapam, which you may know, can be habit forming. If you were my patient, and because you are young; I would work toward trying to treat your anxiety without the use of benzodiazapines, like clonazapam. Good luck. ...Read more
