I am a 48 year old woman and recently and suddenly I developped pain and heat in my upper arm area. It hurts to lift my arms, moreso my right arm, and if I move my right arm too quickly, I get an intense shooting pain. I have minimal pain elsewhere but I bumped my shin recently and it hurt more than I thought it normally would. I am in perimenopause (or perhaps menopause) and it feels like I am having hot flashes in my arms. I have had breast issues in the past (DCIS, Lumpectomy and radiation in 2003). I am in the process of finding new doctors as both of my breast doctors have left the practice and my internist and gynocologist no longer take my insurance. I am scheduled for a mammogram and ultrasound in two weeks(it has been a year since I had one and it was clean)and I just wanted to know what some of the possibilites of the causes of my symptoms and just the general impression.
