Doctor can evaluate: With symptoms of "terrible pain", a doctor should evaluate. It may be nerve pain from nerves coming out of the spine. It may be bone pain from the ribs or the spine. There could be a problem inside the lung or the pleura, which is the lining of the lung. If unable to reach one's regular doctor, one can go to the E.R. Because pains in the chest area might be heart attack symptoms. ...Read more

I have really bad pain, moves sides from left to right and its always around my breasts and under armpit Already gave me steriods but those didnt work?

Work patiently: You might need to be very patient and find a Dr to work with you. I expect they did some exam and tests before steroids - if not, do! Then, perhaps knowing your body in general (BMI, labs, etc) a PT eval might help for muscle/nerve work. Again - be patient and ready to exercise. ...Read more

You may have a cyst in the breast if you can feel a mass there. It is important that you see your doctor who can do a clinical exam of the breast and possibly order an ultrasound of the breast. Also, it is important if you smoke and or take in caffeine to stop. ...Read more

Sore muscles: Breast pain can come from multiple sources. Sometimes this pain may be related to the end of menstrual cycles. If you are doing exercises that stress the muscles of the chest, namely the pectoralis muscles, you may feel pain across the chest that extends into the armpits. With fluid hydration, rest and anti-inflammatory medications, you may be able to find relief from your aches. ...Read more
