Pain between armpit and left breast

I'm now 49. I think I'm going thru menopause. I've been getting the hot flashes for a couple of weeks now. About a week ago, I started having slight pain more like discomfort between my armpit and left breast. I first noticed it at work while leaning over and trying to take a breath. Then gradually it went from chest area to the armpit/left breast area which is now tender, no lumps or bumps just slight pain. Also, I have slight pain when trying to stand or sit up from a laying down position. What could be causing that ?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us with your concern.

Are you a smoker? Do you have a history of cardiovascular disease? When was your last physical exam?

Chest pain is not something to ignore. It has many possible causes. Causes can involve problems with your heart, lungs, esophagus, muscles, ribs or nerves.

Please contact your primary care physician today.
