Painful "tendon" in armpit

For the past two weeks, I have had a long painful area in my armpit.  It feels like the pain of a swollen gland, but runs along the length of what (I think) is a tendon.  I don't feel any really distinct sore spots (as you might with a swollen gland), it is more like the whole line (of tendon, or whatever) hurts.  It doesn't hurt at all when I move my arm, only when I touch the area.  Any idea what this could be?

Hi,

You should avoid lifting heavy weights, take some OTC pain releif medications , apply some local analgesic creams and warm compresses.

This could be due to trauma at the site, muscle pull , etc.

If the symptoms persist after a few days, it would be best to consult your doctor for a clinical examination and confirmed diagnosis.

Let us know if you have any other doubts and post us about how you are doing.

Regards.

Hi Cristi,

I am having exactly the same symptoms. Did you find out what the cause was and how did you manage to treat it?

Hope your symptoms went way and looking forward to get your answer.

Thx
