Pain and swelling under arm

I had a car wreck 2 yrs. ago.  Originally, there were no symptoms.  Then, I had horrible back pain that was eventually helped through massage.  Soon, I developed frozen shoulders in both shoulders.  Eventually, that mostly went away.  Now, I have swelling under my left arm that comes and goes and sometimes has pain around my shoulder with pain and numbness going down my arm.  I also have tingling in my shoulder that has been there ever since the wreck.  I had a mammogram in the spring before I first had the swelling in the summer.  
I'm not sure where to start with my questions, but I have heard that fibromyalgia can start from something like this.  
I have also had a daily headache on the right side that has been diagnosed as a type of neuralgia.

I'm wondering if anyone else has had these type of symptoms?  I have found no reference of pain and swelling under arms after a frozen shoulder, but the symptoms just seem to keep changing in this arm.  I know I need to go to the doctor, but everytime the swelling goes away I put it off.

After looking through the other posts, I realized I forgot to mention I have had IBS for many years and also have terrible sleep problems.
