Also, a xray of the area is reasonable to evaluate the shoulder joint and the ribs in that region. If no abnormality is detected, it may be related to a muscle strain or tendonitis. ...Read more

I would not put: It past your period to cause all kinds of weird symptoms. However, any change in your menstrual symptoms warrants a pregnancy test and recheck in 1-2 weeks.

If it doesn't, then it's time to visit the healthcare professional for help. ...Read more
