Pain Under My Left Armpit
Hi I have a pain under my left armpit, I have felt for lumps but can not find any should I be worried?

I finished breastfeeding 4 months ago. Now, I have a pain under my left armpit/breast area and my left arm from my elbow to pinky finger keeps going numb. What should I do?

The numbness in the left arm is probably not related as that sounds like pressure on the "funny bone" nerve but that should also be investigated further. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

May be unrelated: The pain under your armpits seems unrelated to the other symptoms. The runny nose due to allergy, a cold, or irritation, may suggest that the eustachian tube that connects the nose to the middle ear is partially obstructed. That is one of many causes of dizziness. It does not mean you have an ear infection. Your vital signs are fine. If symptoms don't resolve in a few days, see a doctor. ...Read more
