Sharp pain under right breast to the back, then shortness of breath, then neck pain right side, then numbing of right arm, then voice goes please help?

Lo of possibilities: You may have many different things causing this, but if you have chest pain with shortness of breath and pain up into neck I would seek medical attention as this may be your heart, despite being on your right side. Women are notorious for having atypical symptoms for heart disease. The loss of voice does not fit, but the rest is concerning for a cardiac cause to be ruled out first and foremost. ...Read more

Acute strain: Most likely the bending caused an acute strained muscle in the back. It's also possible that a pinched nerve occurred to account for the radiation to the front of the chest. Try ice applications for the back and, if you can take them, nsaids like Ibuprofen may lessen pain and inflammation. Rest your back and after 48 hours, heat application and liniment may offer relief. ...Read more

I have this sharp pain above my left breast and my left breast itself. Should I go to the er? It started this morning went away, its back again.

Not ER issue: It makes sense to make a regular doctor's appointment for an exam but this is not a good reason for an ER. If it is still there as the week begins, call for an appointment and keep notes on the daily changes. Whatever it might be will almost certainly not become critical and if it does get much worse somehow or other symptoms emerge - the ER will still be there. Best! ...Read more

Sharp pain traveling from upper left back right below shoulder blade to under the left breast leaving a lingering pain as it travels. What could it?

Neuralgia: Pain radiating from under the shoulder blade around to under the breast may be due to compression (pinch) of a thoracic nerve as it travels along the under side of the rib. Sleeping in an awkward position is one cause. The pain can be severe. It's usually a temporary problem but can last for several weeks.
