My shoulder down to my hands pain is been 2 weeks already. Though I'm at rest, I can still feel the pain, mostly on my left arm. Sometimes I can feel the pain near in my armpit. And accompanied by mild lightheadedness that's for 2 weeks as well. I really don't what to do.

    Hi Anna1223

    You may need an ultrasound scan on your shoulder and arm. You may have a problem with your bursar and arm ligaments..Ask your doctor to order an ultrasound for you...

    is there any possibility this could be lung related? Are you getting any chest pain or breathing issues as well?

      the reason I asked about chest pain is because you mentioned armpit pain. Chest pain that travels to the armpit can be pleurisy. I have multiple pulmonary emboli and I got chest pain that traveled to the armpit, I would also get arm discomfort and pins and needles in my hand.

      Is it a possibility it could be heart related as it is your left arm, have you had any tests or checks for that?

      I've done EKG, blood test, urine test, chest xray, thyroid test but everything is normal.

      If you start getting breathing problems, ask for a d-dimer blood test, chest X-rays don't show up pulmonary emboli or pleurisy.
