Pain

hi everyone,
It's  been a busy 2 months, with visits from both sides of the family in turns.   However it feels nice and blessed to have them around.   
The nerve pain(sharp,shooting) is back in my left breast.   So have increased the dosage of Pregablin 150mg and Tylenol extra 500mg to thrice daily  instead of the original twice daily.  It is helping. 
I read online somewhere that some  people, even 18 months after radiation, get pain and soreness in that area.   Has anyone else experienced this too? 
Im doing the arm exercises due to the lymphedema.  The left breast swells up when in pain.  The lumptectomy and SNB was done on November 1st 2017, on the left breast, and 5 nodes were removed.  This was followed by 16 rounds of radiation, starting December 26 2017 to Jan 17 2018 .
Im basically 99% lefty.  So that hand is in constant motion.  
Pantone else going through this?
