This condition Susan is mostly the result of an inflammation of either the breast or the axillary lymph glands. it is especially so, if there is redness of the skin of the Yin aspect of the upper arm, along with the hypersensitivity. There are, unfortunately, not enough details in your input so as to be completely certain of this possible diagnosis, however, if this is the case, acupuncture by an expert must be applied and NOT pressure of any kind, including Tuina. Also Ch. herbs can be applied but, in my experience, acupuncture works wonders in such cases and therefore this is the treatment of choice.
