Does Anyone Have Pain Under Their Armpit(s)?

Does Anyone Have Pain Under Their Armpit(s)?

I find this really strange because it's a totally new symptom this year . . .

Thank you for your above post, I'm sitting here with my right arm locked to my side with pain in my arm pit so so sore, feeling quite frightened. It's reassuring to know that I can look up and see if it relates to fibro, so thank you x

Hi, I have been newly diagnosed with Fibromyalgia last year after a long time of random symptoms. One of the worst symptoms is this pain under my armpits... it's really hard to describe but it becoming more and more frequent. The only way I can describe it is like someone has lifted you up by the fingertips under your arms and really dug in and then the pain stays... it's a burning/tingly pain for me.... is this what you experience??

I get it so bad that the swelling is the size of a tennis ball in my arm pit! The swelling in my chest area increases some days so much that my bras don't fit and I can't move my left arm! I have had many tests but nothing! Doc told me its fibro inflammation! I feel your pain it is very uncomfortable and painful! I put ice on it,seems to help a little.
