Armpit pain

Hi everyone,

So I started to get a severe sharp pain under my armpit last week, it comes and goes but is seriously painful when it does come, so much so that I would stop me in my tracks. When I would walk fast, run, sit down or stand up quickly, even if I put something like a clip board under my arm. I had my period last week but I never experience pain in my breasts or anything like this when I'm on my period so it was new to me.

The pain is still there, I can't run and I can feel a dull pain even when I have my bra on. I was just wondering is this something to be worried about, I know with the crisis we are in at the minute the GP's are maxed out and I don't want to be wasting their time but I'm just abit concerned about this.

Any thoughts on this would be great!

Bumping for you

If you are wearing an under wired bra, put it away, leave the bra off for a few days. My consultant following a mammogram at the hospital says push me pull yous are for nights out not every day wear, she says not otherwise.

Thank you so much for bumping and replying smile Because I am so flat chested I don't actually wear proper bras unless I'm going out at night or something, day to day and work I just wear pull over sports bra thingys. I'm so sick with worry, I keep checking and I feel like I can feel lumpy bits but I'm just wondering is it fatty tissue/bone, I really don't know and I don't want to seem stupid phoning my doctor and saying I think I have something wrong and then wasting their time because it's nothing at allblush

Talk to your GP about it, then you will have a better idea.

Hi OP. Probably nothing but phoning GP is the right thing to do in this case.

Yeah I think I'll phone my doctor in the morning and see what they say. Thank you everyonesmile
