    I have pain in my left breast that radiates into my armpit, shoulder blade, and my left arm. I do not feel any lumps, but the pain is severe. I notice it when I am on my period. I also have an IUD.

    Meg, this kind of severe, radiating pain on the left side can be a sign of cardiac issues. Although it seems to come and go in synch with your period - and that might point instead to a hormonal issue, or a large cyst – I think it's worth your while to describe these symptoms to your doctor, and see what s/he says. So make an appointment, OK? Take care- PJH
