I wonder if you could help me because I am slightly freaking out.
So I have been suffering from tight upper back and trapezius, and I have been having regularly deep tissue massages.
Almost a month ago, I decided to try acupuncture but it didn’t really do anything for me.
After the appointment I was self-massaging myself, and as I was trying to find possible trigger points, and I ended up going hard on the area above my collarbone.
Ever since that day, I noticed a swelling along the collarbone on the left side, around the middle of the bone towards the shoulder joint. So not a round lump but more like a lump across the top of the collarbone.
Recently I have noticed that my left trapezius is swollen as well compared to my right side and 2 days ago I noticed that I have a small discomfort on the left of my throat, when I swallow and finally I want to add that my left hand is a tiny bit tingly/numb some times.
I went to my GP a week after I did the self-massaging, and she said that she couldn’t see something medically urgent, and that I may have injured myself and possibly made a lymph node swollen.
Thank you so much in advance.
