    Painful swelling in my right arm

    Hi everyone
    Iam a 34 yr old female in pretty good health, on Wednesday i developed a
    very intense painful swelling in my right arm, i cant extend it at all . I went to the hospital on thurs , took xray no break, no nerve damage, just fluid /swelling, he gave me vioxx and vicodin I had a very bad reaction so I am sticking to advil.
    A few months ago i had painful swollen bumps on my armpits, never found out what it was and it disappeared as quick as it came, Ireally dont want that to happen again, maybe some suggestions could help me out.

    when my doc retruns from vacation next week I will go to see her (if i can stand the pain that long) Today it felt considerably better for awhile but now it is back with full force and the swelling seems worse.
    Any suggestions on what this sounds like?

    thanks for listening i am a bit scared

    Re: Painful swelling in my right arm

    Angie -- just saw this message now and had to respond. Did you happen to get any answers? Did you bump your arm or have a cut or bug bite or did the swelling just appear "out of the blue"?

    It could be a bacterial infection (did they mention cellulitis?) but they would have given you an antibiotic like pennicillan (sp?) for that. One thing you might want to look into is skin brushing. Have you heard of this before? If not, let me know and I can give you more detials. But I suggest this because it helps with the circulation of the lymphatics. It seems perhaps your lymph nodes in your armpit may be congested. Keep me posted!!!
