Painful cramps in arm

Every so often, I get pain in my left arm. The pain moves around my armpit, along the inside of my tricep, and the inside of my elbow. It feels dull and achy. Usually its not that bad but sometimes it really hurts. I have large boobs and the left one has more tissue around my armpit; it seems like the flesh pressing into my arm there is what's causing the pain.

My breasts themselves never actually hurt, it's only ever my left arm.

Hi Maggie, 

Welcome to EmpowHER. Depending what can be causing the pain, if it's in the breast or in the arm. Sometimes cyclic pain in the breast is caused by the monthly changes of hormones. Cyclic pain occurs more often in younger women, it's generally described as a heaviness or soreness that radiates to the armpit and arm. You might want to schedule an appointment with your doctor and perhaps have imaging testing done to know what is truly causing this pain. Hope this was helpful?
