Not cardiac: What the ER did was determine that's it's not your heart. The shoulder impingement assessment is offered as their best educated guess. Understand: from your perspective, you want the ER to tell you precisely what's wrong. From the ER's view, they simply want to rule out life threatening problems.

Nerve impingement: can be caused by being sandwiched between two spinal bones, pressed by a bulging disc. It can cause muscle spasm and back pain. This condition must be professionally managed. See interventional pain management specialist for definitive diagnosis and management.
