I am a generally healthy 38 year old female and I have had an assortment of stragne pains for over 6 weeks.
At first it was tingling across my mid back that would come and go. Then I got pain in my chest and armpit, and down my arm. I got checked at the hospital and they ruled out heart trouble.
The pain continued but went up and down in intensity. Sometimes I just feel a dull heavy feeling in my left breast, and other times it is sharp pain. Over the past few days I have experienced a hot prickly feeling in both breasts (similar to when I was breast-feeding and "full") and a prickly hot feeling across my back. I had a chest x-ray and breast ultrasound-- nothing.
Both my own doctor and the doctor at the hospital had asked if I have any rash-- which I do not. I have one "spot" on my left shoulder, but to me it lookes like a pimple and it was not ever tichy. So-- could it possible be shingles without the rash? Is there a way to determine if that is the cause of my pains? (I read that they need to analyze the rash to diagnose shingles) If it could be shingles, I don't want to let it go on much longer without proper treatment. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I too started having the exact same symptoms as you 2 weeks ago, the first week it started as a tickly feeling in my shoulder when i came in from shopping in town, it was very cold outside and put it down to that because i get itchy feelings on my legs when coming in from cold weather into warm, only this time it started burning all over my back, then breasts, and it was like hot pins and tingling, then it started itching. I put up with this for a week, then it vanished, i was so pleased i didnt have to go to my doctor as everything i get lately is put down to anxeity and depression, my clothes are irritating my skin and wearing a bra is agony. After a week its now back :(
