Hi, I have pain in my upper left arm, that comes and goes, but does not get worse with arm movement. I am extreamly tired as well!
Arm pain: Your symptom is nonspecific but still could be due to muscular strain or inflammation, or tendonitis even if unaffected by arm movements. Another possibility is impingement of a nerve due to disc or spur problems in your neck. Tenderness over the upper arm favors tendonitis or a muscular cause. If cold and or hot applications and Advil (ibuprofen) type medication don't help, see an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more
More info needed: If there is no history of sprain or other injury, you may have tendonitis of the shoulder. Arthritis of the shoulder joint is another possibility. Treatment consists of taking anti-inflammatory medications like Advil or Aleve (naproxen) and avoiding stress on the shoulder joint. If symptoms persist consult an orthopedic specialist for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
Could it be frozen?: Adhesive capsulitis, or frozen shoulder, isn't uncommon in women in your age group. It limits your range of motion and makes sleeping miserable!

Good luck with this. Lgromkomd. ...Read more
My baby of 6 months has erb's palsy. The left arm's movement is about ninety degrees. Will it ever go above that?
Possibly: You need to have the baby evaluated at a center that can deal with brachial plexus injuries. The brachial plexus is a group of nerves in the shoulder region that can often get damaged during childbirth. There is a period of improvement shortly after the injury then the rate of improvement slows. This is an issue for a pediatric hospital with the resources to evaluate what we are dealing with. ...Read more

Woke up with a pain upon movement under left arm close to breast. No pain if sitting or lying still. I do sleep on my left side only. It hurts when I press on it but see nothing visibly. I picked up breast and it stopped until I put back down.
Arm/breast pain: First go to your gyn provider for an exam. The weight of the breast can pull on the nerve complex under the axilla of the arm, and lifting the breast will stop the pulling on the nerve. A growth under the arm may be involving the brachial plexus, so the condition needs to be examined by a physician. ...Read more

It depends on type o:
The report is only as reliable as the type of x-ray done (? C-spine x-ray versus MRI of the c-spine).
If you have lots of pain, a plane x-ray is not likely to help with the diagnosis. You need to be sure that you are examined by a neurologist or neurosurgeon to help you find out the cause and offer treatment which is appropriate. They can order a mri, if indicated based on their examination. ...Read more
