Get checked: I recommend you consult with a healthcare provider who will take history and perform physical exam. Proper evaluaation of the pain should take into account your overall health status and risk profile. If you chest pain or shortness of breath, go the the ER. ...Read more

Probably unrelated: A dull pain in the right side from what you describe sounds like a musculoskeletal issue. It is probably not related to the breast exam. You may have strained something doing normal activity like yoga, cleaning etc. Then after having the exam you became aware? You can try ibuprofen, if it persists see you doctor. ...Read more

Need more testing: Just because your EKG was normal does not necessarily mean you have no cardiac issues. If you smoke heavily and have persistent extremity pain of unknown significance, it would probably be in your best interest to have a stress test performed. This can potentially aid in determining if your pain is of cardiac origin. I don't see how alcohol could play a role in this. ...Read more

Have dull, shooting pain in my upper right arm.  Pain is worse when i sleep.  Has been occurring for 2+weeks.?

Several possibilitie: Do you recall any injury? It could be from your arm or your shoulder. Are you sleeping on your right side with elbow bent and hand by your face? That position will make it worse. Try 2 aleve with food twice a day and moist heat 15 min over shoulder and arm 3 times a day. If not better soon seek care. ...Read more
