I just started feeling numbness on the left side of my body....left side of chin, neck, breast, arm, etc. What could it be from?

Get Going!!: I see this question was submitted 23 minutes ago. Still have that numbness? Then get someone to take you to an ER for a detailed evaluation. NOW. Especially if you are over 50. And take one aspirin on the way, if you have any. Don't drive yourself. If the numbness has gone away, take an aspirin, then go to the ER. This may be a warning shot for stroke. I don't want to scare you, just guide you. Go!

Ultrasound would hel: Hi Lisa, It is very common for women to have breast pain as the breasts are hormone sensitive organs. Pain is rarely a sign of cancer unless in the late stages. At your age I would lean toward fibro cystic breasts. An Ultrasound of the breast can help determine if there is a cyst or not. Remember that if there is a cyst this does not mean that there is a problem.

Bewildering Breast: Augmentation comes with the risk of rupture and extrusion or leakage of the implant contents. In most cases the body will absorb these substances depending on the content (saline vs. Silicone). In the case of silicone and other materials an inflammatory reaction can occur and will irritate the underlying muscle, connective tissue and nerves. If the arm is affected seek evaluation of the issue.

I'm having chest pain on my left side under my breast and dizziness and sometimes numbness of my left arm. What could this be?

Heart Condition: Chest pain on the left side with numbness in the left arm and dizziness could possiblys signal a medical emergency. At the worst, this could be an impending heart attack. At best, it could be angina which is still a heart condition that could lead to worse outcomes including death. My suggestion, visit your local er if this continues to occur.

Can breast pain that leads to numbness be caused by the neck? (also upper arm) 2 yrs ago had c5-7 fusion and now having problems above & below

Numbness: Pain that lead to numbness in the upper arm can be related to a neck problem from c4-6. It is unlikely that it explains the symptoms in the breast. A dermatome MAP can better illustrate this. The sensory representation over the breast comes from upper thoracic spine. Search dermatome MAP online.
