Have had a very dull but constant ache/throb in left neck and shoulder for few days. Spreads down upper arm. Also feels hot to touch, feel flush also.

Have had a very dull but constant ache/throb in left neck and shoulder for few days. Spreads down upper arm. Also feels hot to touch, feel flush also.

Shoulder pain: One thinks a bit about your heart with symptoms like this, especially with flushing. However, pretty unlikely at your age, and would not feel hot to touch. My best guess is muscle spasm irritating the nerve bundle at your shoulder, or even higher up at your neck. I recommend seeing a doctor to help sort this out. ...Read more

Strong ache under the arm pit on the chest side radiated later to the shoulder blade, then down to make a band on the left upper arm. Pain stronger when standing. Nothing done to cause muscle strain.

Strong ache under the arm pit on the chest side radiated later to the shoulder blade, then down to make a band on the left upper arm. Pain stronger when standing. Nothing done to cause muscle strain.

Go to the hospital: The symptoms you describe are very concerning given your age. Without something that makes you think of a muscle strain, this is even more concerning. If you are short of breath, nauseated, have palpitations or are sweaty, please seek care immediately. Call 911. This can be a heart attack or a problem with your aorta. I hope it is neither of those things, but you should be seen asap to be sure. ...Read more

I have pain that's started around my right shoulder and upper arm and now that arm is itching, what's going on?

Nerve irritation: Something is irritating a nerve in your arm. Could be a pinched nerve in your neck or inflamation of a nerve, such as can occur with a virus. Either way, you'll be ok, though you might want to see a neurologist to nip this in the bud. ...Read more
