Xray of shoulder shows nothing abnormal but i have burning in upper back between shoulder blades and random right arm tingling and numbness...whats up?

Trigger point?: Pain between the shoulder blades and arm tingling is often a pinched nerve, a trigger point or a muscle strain. Rarely something serious like heart or aorta problems can do this. A careful history and physical exam can usually clarify the issue. While rare, sometimes you need a CT or MRI to rule out more serious problems. ...Read more

Could i be having a heart attack? This morning, out of the blue, my right arm was sore. As the day progressed the arm has gotten more and more painful - stabbing pain that radiates up towards my shoulder and neck. I have not done anything unusual in terms

Symptoms : Symptoms of a heart attack are "classically" described as a pressure, heaviness or tightness on, or in the chest, and may be accompanied by shortness of breath, nausea, sweating, arm pain (usually left), neck pressure or discomfort, or none of the above. Women may be more likely to have unusual symptoms, such as shortness of breath alone, or unusual abdominal pains or breathing difficulties. Your right arm symptoms can be from a pinched nerve in the neck or armpit, and compromised nerve in the wrist area (known as "carpal tunnel syndrome"), or compromised blood flow to the arm. It is not easy to connect your back pain with the arm pain; but occasionally neck (or "cervical spine") impingements on the spinal cord nerves can cause pains to upper back, neck area, or arms. A complete history and examination with your primary health provider is the best idea to get to the bottom of this problem. ...Read more

Access placement: If you decide to go on hemodialysis, your vascular access should be a arterio-venous fistula (avf). That is normally placed in the non-dominant arm. Another option is peritoneal dialysis (pd), where a catheter in placed in the peritoneal cavity so no arterial access is needed. See the image on the right. The catheter is not placed in any abdominal organs. Discuss pd with your nephrologist. ...Read more

What to do if I have a beckers neavus on my upper right arm going downwards by 19cm. I'm 16, & my bn is not hairy! wilitstay?

Lucky you!: Only about one guy in 200 has a Becker's nevus. It's harmless and distinctive. Richard Gere liked his so much that he emphasized it in his shirtless scenes. Other noted mainstream / "adult" male stars & some of my Dr. friends sport a Becker's as well. Laser removal won't be complete, and you'll be wise to let everyone know that you're proud of it. Your future wife may totally love it. Cheers. ...Read more
