My pain

Doctors don't know

My pain

The pain that I'm experiencing is basically around the surgical area and approximately in the same area as the original pain was when I went to the doctor two years ago. It is a very sharp pain, it's a shooting pain and it burns. It burns around my back toward the front and around the top of my breast under my armpit. Sometimes the shooting pain goes into my upper arm, always on the right side. I mean that it is so sharp that you don't know where to turn. I can't turn over from one side of the bed to the other. I have had a chronic back problem. I've had back surgery. I will always have back pain, but nothing like this.
