My left arm has been swollen for a while. The deltoid area. I get occasional itchyness and botherness. Feels like the muscle. Sometimes it feels like my circulation as well.
The swelling also feels like it runs up my shoulder and neck area. But is most noticeable on my arm. I measured my arms and the swollen one is 12.5 in. and the right arm is 12 in. I went to the doctor for the swelling and for anxieties and the doctor only treated me for my anxieties.He never examined my arm only had asked me questions like, did it hurt, was it numb. I've looked for information about anything about the swelling but, haven't found any answers remotely close. Do you have a clue of what's going on?
I have a similar situatin but it's my right arm. prior to the swelling i had a recurring boil in the right armpit. the boil is no longer present after taking antibiotics. the dr, told me it's hidradenitis supparativa-which has now caused poor lymph drainage. I'm really concerned myself. I've changed my diet and done the exercises recommended but it's just the same.
