I am 32 year old female. I took my 1st dose of vaccine in june end. After few weeks I started having mild pain in my ribs on right side (same side of hand where I took my vaccine dose) also the skin where I took my vaccine shot became little sensitive. After few days I also started getting pins and needles in and around that side of my breast. My right underarm has muscle spasm. Sometimes I also feel fluttering in my right arm and breast. Few days back I did chest xray and sonomemo as well and reports were normal. Still I don't know whats the exact issue. I also feel skin burning like sensation in the mentioned area. I have restricted my right hand moment and exercise as the pain increases after certain movements and lifting something heavy also after activity like dough knitting for chapatis after which I feel pain in my wrist, fingers, shoulder and neck of right side. Please suggest whether I should consult orthopedic or neurologist because I feel this is more related to neverves and muscles. Also if anyone can suggest me proper treatment that will be really helpful. Also I want to mention that I was taking some medicine for hair fall treatment like iron tablets, mcbm 69, multi vit and mineral tablets and some herbal medicine from richfeel. I doubt if this can be side effect of the medicines I am taking from 8-9 months. Also prior this condition started I used to sleep folding my right hand above my head. I also doubt that my hand muscles or nerves got injured because of my wrong sleeping position.

I am a 18 year old girl. For nearly 4-5 years, I am experiencing pain in my left shoulder frequently. Whenever I take bag packs on my shoulder or just do work, my left shoulder starts paining. I also had physiotherapy schedules because my doctor suggested that. During those sessions my pain completely stopped but after a week or something that occasional pain started again. Also I had x ray of my shoulder but everything was normal in that.

You can get an ultrasound screening of your breasts and in case anything is suspicious, the doctor will recommend further investigations. It will be difficult to comment based on the basic description of some amount of swelling and pain. You can also consult a general surgeon in person for further advice.

46 year old female suffering from shoulder pain for the past 2 months. Got the same issue last year and did pt and got okay. It resurfaced and she has degenerative disc disease in back. No mri done for shoulder also got her mammogram 2 years ago and its birads 1 and birads 2 (in right breast and pain is also in right shoulder blade) got mri for ovaries done and it was benign. Got hormonal tests done recent because hasn’t had her period in 7-8 months and fsh, lsh, and estradiol were low. Can this signal breast cancer/cancer of any kind (i know I suffer from anxiety but am I over thinking this?)

Perform 10 revolutions in each direction, once a day. As your symptoms improve, increase the diameter of your swing, but never force it. When you're ready for more, increase the stretch by holding a light weight (three to five pounds) in the swinging arm. 2. Towel stretch hold one end of a three-foot-long towel behind your back and grab the opposite end with your other hand. Hold the towel in a horizontal position. Use your good arm to pull the affected arm upward to stretch it. You can also do an advanced version of this exercise with the towel draped over your good shoulder. Hold the bottom of the towel with the affected arm and pull it toward the lower back with the unaffected arm. Do this 10 to 20 times a day. 3. Finger walk face a wall three-quarters of an arm's length away. Reach out and touch the wall at waist level with the fingertips of the affected arm. With your elbow slightly bent, slowly walk your fingers up the wall, spider-like, until you've raised your arm as far as you comfortably can. Your fingers should be doing the work, not your shoulder muscles. Slowly lower the arm (with the help of the good arm, if necessary) and repeat. Perform this exercise 10 to 20 times a day. 4. Cross-body reachsit or stand. Use your good arm to lift your affected arm at the elbow, and bring it up and across your body, exerting gentle pressure to stretch the shoulder.

Gently bend your knees, opening up the armpit. Deepen your knee bend slightly, gently stretching the armpit, and then straighten. With each knee bend, stretch a little further, but don't force it.

Neck pain many people experience neck pain because of poor posture and muscle strain. In these cases, your neck pain should go away if you practice good posture and rest your neck muscles when they’re sore. The most common types of mild to moderate neck pain usually respond well to self-care within two or three weeks. If you have minor neck pain or stiffness, take these simple steps to relieve it: apply ice for the first few days. After that, apply heat with a heating pad, hot compress, or by taking a hot shower. Exercise your neck every day. Slowly stretch your head in side-to-side and up-and-down motions. Use good posture. Avoid cradling the phone between your neck and shoulder. Change your position often. Don’t stand or sit in one position for too long. Get a gentle neck massage. Use a special neck pillow for sleeping. Short-term immobilization. Use a soft collar that supports your neck may help relieve pain by taking pressure off the structures in your neck. However, if used for more than three hours at a time or for more than one to two weeks, a collar might do more harm than good. Forward and backward tilt this can be done while you're seated or on your feet. Keep your moves slow and smooth. Start with your head squarely over your shoulders and your back straight. Lower your chin toward your chest and hold for 15-30 seconds. Relax, and slowly lift your head back up. Tilt your chin up toward the ceiling and bring the base of your skull toward your back.

Gently tilt your head toward your right shoulder and try to touch it with your ear. Stop when you feel the stretch. Don't raise your shoulder. Hold the stretch for 5-10 seconds, then return to the start position. Repeat on your left side. You can do several sets and work your way up to 10 repetitions. For extra stretch, put the hand on the same side of your tilted head on top of your head, and press lightly with your fingertips. Side rotation you can do this while seated or standing.
