This is the second night this week, and 3rd in 10 days that I've woke up (between 2-4am) and couldn't go back to sleep. I'm already fighting a sudden overwhelming fatigue that started Thursday evening, followed by all over muscle cramps & joint pains.
I was laying on my left side and noticed a discomfort so tried to readjust my position by turning over. Then I noticed discomfort up under the armpit, like I was holding an object there. I lifted the arm over my head (like doing a breast exam) & reached with the right to examine the area. I felt tenderness in the lymph nodes but as I traced backwards & down, towards the scapula, I hit an area so painful I nearly came off the bed. There's an extremely painful lump (almost rope like) & flat area at the bottom of the scapula/ribs. And tracing it back up and forward, towards the underarm & breast, the pain & swelling lessens.
Out of curiosity I checked the right scapula/ribs, underarm & breast, and only the scapula & ribs are slightly painful. It doesn't go all the way to the breast. Both sides of my ribs are sensitive but not painful, and not in back or front. If I put my arms by my side it feels like something is up inside the armpit, and its uncomfortable. This is either the 2-3 time this has been like this in the underarm/side-breast area. But I'd not noticed all the other towards the back before.
Does anyone have any ideas what this might be? 🙏🌼
