Pain behind right breast, side of chest and upper back
For the past three years I have gone from one doctor to another trying to find out what is causing, and how I can stop, this aweful, chronic pain I live with every day. I can rarely wear a bra any more, or even a sports top for support because they only increase the pain I feel. There are certain spots that seem to be worse than others under and around my armpit; almost like trigger points. I also have pain that radiates up into my neck and shoulders. I was diagnosed with myofascial syndrome a few years ago. A specialist found one trigger point on my upper right shoulder. Are these all related, or are they not? The doctors don't seem to know anything and I'm tired of the pain. Somebody please help me!
