Pinched Nerve: Very commonly, pain near or around the shoulder blade is not shoulder related at all. Instead, it is most often related to neck/cervical spine related issues. A "pinched nerve" from the neck either from a disc bulge/herniation/bone spur is usually the culprit. The only way to know for sure would require an evaluation from an orthopedic surgeon or perhaps your primary care provider. ...Read more

Is it harmful to the arm and/or circulation to take blood pressure too often? Took it 50 times a day for past 2 days, and now my arm feels sore.

Reduce #BP readings: Unclear why you are taking BP, but I would recommend taking blood pressure no more than a few times/day! Checking too often can cause stress and this can result in high readings. When BP is taken, the cuff is inflated to a pressure that prevents blood flow through the artery. This pressure can cause temporary pain and tingling, and this would be worse if taking an excessive number BP measurements. ...Read more

Been obsessively checking my blood pressure (50+ times a day). Will this do any damage to my arm/arteries/etc? Arm feels slightly sore now.

Meaasuring your blood pressure if you have hypertenion 2-3 times a day during predetermined times is best. 1st thing in the morning, before you go to bed and mid day. OCD behavior in regards to BP measurement is pathologic and completely unnecessary. ...Read more

Have just started lipitor and today my left shoulder and upper arm are sore. feels like I got punched or ran into wall. I did nothing I remember.

Stop lipitor: Since lipitor is not a drug which threatens health when withdrawn completely, consider stopping the drug for 2 weeks and see if the pain goes away. You may reintroduce it back after the pain has gone away and observe if the problem resumes. I do agree that it is unusual to have such an immediate reaction. ...Read more

Got tattoo on inner wrist. It is day 6 & now hand & arm is sore & feels stiff. Tattoo looks & feels fine. No signs of infection. Is stiffness normal?

Sore wrist: This is not a normal reaction to tattooing pigment. If you were allergic or infected there should be pain, tenderness and swelling with redness.The procedure may have stirred up a carpal tunnel syndrome where numbness of the fingers could be a clue. For that use a wrist splint. Does not sound like a complication of pregnancy. Send more info since many Dxs cause these symptoms. ...Read more

My arm is sore and feels like it is locked at the elbow ?

How long?: If you did a lot of recent activity with the arm, the soreness may be muscular and should improve in 3-4 days. If your elbow actually locks in place where you can not bend or straighten it that's different. If it locks that is usually a sign of a piece of loose or damaged cartilage in the elbow and should be evaluated by your primary care doctor or an orthopedist. ...Read more
