    Very painful swelling in my right arm!!!He

    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

    Angie

    an infection, a clot in a blood vessel, a hernia of some kind if it gets worse go to emergency.

    I think you should demand that a doctor find out what's wrong, RIGHT NOW. It could be an infection which has the potential to become serious.

    The painful bumps in your armpits were lymph nodes. The fact that they were painful means that they were probably fighting an infection. If they had been painless it could have been a sign of cancer.

    I suggest going to a doctor and not leaving until they find out what's going on.
