    Hi Eliaimee, I don't know if this will help you any but...today I brought my cat and dog to the vet. I have a bag type kitty carrier...I had it slung over my shoulder with a pretty annoyed cat in it. Dog leash in other hand. Got a spike of pain in my chest and pain on my right shoulder and breast while driving. Of course, my heart went crazy. Anyways...now my left shoulder, armpit is a little sore now...so I totally pulled something.

    Of course please do not use my kitty in bag story in lieu of real medical advice!

    sounds like my pain since May of 2018. It's a combination of frozen shoulder, and to much coffee😣 o thought the same, all the worst and went ahead and did my test before my 50th and all good. this is all hormones related , start taking B12, and iron , these vitamins help me alot. and to ease the pain get yourself a warming blanket or heat pad

    I am having issues with pain deep in my right breast and is under my armpit, I can feel it in my upper back at times and my shoulder but mainly deep in my right breast. Feels like someone is pressing there fingers there. It isn't strong pain, but it makes me worry non the less.

    Peri-menopause and now full on menopause has turned me into a worry wort/hypochondriac. I worry that it's cancer, or a heart attack or something else.

    I am thinking it is likely that my new purse is too heavy and I wear it on my right forearm. (I am left handed) The purse itself is heavy and large which means I shove more stuff in it. I am hoping this is the cause. It could be likely. But it doesn't really feel like a pulled muscle feeling.

    My husband says to call my GP and get an appt. But I don't want to go in there for one more thing that adds to the "Here she is again" feeling I get when I go see medical professionals.

    Anyway, I can empathize. I have had it on my left side too. I have a history of heart issues.

    So I get freaked pretty easily. I failed a treadmill test and had a heart cath a few years ago.

    My heart was good though I have 20% plaque build-up so they put me on Lipitor. I have had my heart checked with an ultrasound and EEG test every time I sneeze wrong. It always says good.

    I still worry though.

    I feel for you.
