View Full Version : Super Tender inside upper arm and armpit

10-02-2009, 05:43 PM
I have had this f0or a week and seems to be worse,

My right inside upper arm is so tender and there is no bruising at all.

I bruise easily so if I hurt myself it would show.

The pain has moved from one spot and spread to up under my underarm

anyone know what this is??????

hi lovepinkpeeps, sounds like your lymph nodes are sensitive. Mine sometimes get very sensitive to pressure. I suspect it is related to hormones.

oh thank you for you speedy reply!

I was sitting here getting panicked, thinking of all the horrible thoughts............

I thought about the lymph nodes because I have seen this discussed here.

Can it be only on one side like that? my other arm is fine.

It IS TIME for my period this coming few days.

I have never experience this before!

yes, mine usually hurts on the left side. The right side is seldom sensitive. With your period around the corner, i truly believe this is your hormones. Just watch it and see what happens in a few days. My daughter had a very huge tumor in her left breast, and her lymph nodes were never sore, so i don't think you have to worry. But, please, if you get nervous, call your dr.

thanks again !

I just got to worrying that it was a blood clot or something.

does your soreness go down your inside upper arm?

luvpinkpeeps -

I love your avitar! What is your pup's name? Is he/she chiuahua mix?

thanks!my avatar is my little chihuahua Tiko !

he is a deer-head chihuahua.

I went to the non emergency emergi-care last night with my arm because I was becoming increasingly concerned about the soreness moving further.

They did an ultra sound to rule out a blood clot...........I was so frightened!

anyway that ultrasound showed no clot, whew!

I came home and took two aleeve and it is so much better today.

Thanks for responding mountaindreamer in my time of panic.

hi luvpinkpeeps, so glad you went to seek medical attention. Anytime something is not right, and we are frightened, we need to find out what is going on....hope you are feeling better today.

There is a lot of things that happen to us and we do get scared about them thank God for the people on this web site. I also have the soreness in my arm pits and the doc says it is the inflamation of the dieases when you do not feel good. Hope you are better soon. Your puppy is cute my daughter has a long haired chi don't know how to spell the rest. Love Bonita

a big thank you to all of you!

I am better, yesterday, the pain moved to my bicep only....it disappeared from the other spots and settle in the bicep, weird.

this morning I woke up with a weird rash on my other forearm....no itch at all thank goodness.

I don't believe I will ever get use to all these weird symptoms that come, go etc.

Bonita, I have really enjoyed having this little chihuahua...he is great with me, but a bit snippy to everyone else.

We also have an 85lb american bulldog in the house, and a shit-tzu.

those are my kids' dogs.
