Sharp pain on left side chest between ribs when lifting left arm + swollen painful lymph node under left armpit?

Some thoughts: A swollen painful lump in axilla (armpit) accompanied by pain on same side when lifting your arm is likely caused by an infection or inflammation of the sweat glands associated with hair follicles in axillary hair (hidradenitis suppurativa) or perhaps an irritation from deodorant.

They will swell and be painful. You also want to be sure the lymph nodes are not swollen because of cancer. ...Read more

Shoulder clavicle ligaments got separated in a car accident 3 mnt ago.  Left shoulder juts out now.Also aches wen it's cold n I carry stuff wit d arm?

AC separation: Type 1-3 ac separations are typically treated without surgery. A type 3 indicates you tore the capsule and cc ligaments. If you walk thru most football or hockey locker rooms alot of players have this. A type 5 indicates the clavicle has pierced thru the trapezial fascia. These are generally fixed but can carry a high failure rate of 20%. I would see a shoulder specialist to identify yours. ...Read more

I have a strange ache near the back under my shoulder blade on left side of body. What could be wrong?

Unlikely: Shoulder blade pain or scapulathoracic pain is usually musculoskeletal related. Stretch-grab a door frame lean back and then rotate toward your arm so that you put a stretch on the area and hold for 10 plus seconds. Do this several times a day. Apply heat. Lastly, massage the area by putting a tennis ball in a stocking, put it on the area and lean against a wall and roll the ball on the area. ...Read more

The past 2 days my left shoulder has been giving me a ache feeling it comes and goes.. What could this be from?

Some ideas: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, but here is some good general information. Various parts of the shoulder can get strained. A tear/rip/break/dislocation wouldn't be some of the time, but would hurt all of the time. The area where the arm is attached (rotator cuff) is a common spot. Various muscles can get strained. ...Read more

What could a dull ache under my left arm and back of shoulder mean?

Muscle strain: Possible a muscle strain or rotator cuff injury. It depends on how long this has been going on and if there was any inciting trauma such as lifting or carrying something heavy which could have brought it out. I'd say more info and having a doctor evaluate it is the best course of action. ...Read more

Unlikely that they: Are the source of your pain. This could be myofascial or muscular in nature or even related to a local nerve issue due to entrapment within the shoulder or even from the shoulder itself. A neck problem such as a disc issue can present this way too. If it persists or worsens in spite of time., local treatment like heat or massage or use of otc meds if not contraindicated , see your doctor. ...Read more
