Pinched nerve: Often these symptoms come from a pinched nerve in the neck. A neck (cervical) disc herniation often causes pain in the shoulder blade. Worsening pain turning your head toward the affected side is very common. Be alert for any pain, numbness, tingling or weakness in the arm or hand. See your PCP or a spinal specialist if it does not improve.
