    What you're experiencing and feeling is most likely caused by anxiety. People don't realize that anxiety can wreak havoc on your body and manifest itself in physical pain. 

    I had a similar experience with pain in my underarm. I had several tests done. They did find a small nodule, which they biopsied and found to be benign. I didn't believe it was all anxiety because I felt physical pain. After doing a lot of research, I began to realize that it could be anxiety. I saw a myofascial release therapist who told me that my muscles were incredibly tight due to stress and anxiety.

    After working with her to relax my muscles and after I stopped worrying about serious diseases, all my physical pain and problems went away. Now I can feel them flare up when I'm stressed. So I focus on meditation, massage, deep breathing, and calming myself.

      That’s what I believe that it isn’t anxiety it’s anazing how it can take over your body and life like it does it’s scary some days I’m fine and others I’m worse
