Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for the additional information.

The most common cause of these symptoms would be from musculoskeletal inflammation. Conditions of the breasts would usually not also cause symptoms in the back of the arms. Esophageal problems may sometimes cause aching along the side of the chest and can radiate to the arms, but this would be less likely, particularly if there is no alteration of symptoms with eating.

Although it would require an evaluation to make a definitive diagnosis, it would be reasonable to try an anti-inflammatory medicine, such as ibuprofen or naproxen, to try to ease symptoms. If this is effective, then no further evaluation would be necessary.

If I can provide any further information, please let me know. If I have answered your question, please remember to provide a positive rating so that I am credited for assisting you.
