I've got a burning pain in my shoulder arm and elbow for the past year, the pain is very intense , can it be gout ?

Possibly: Gout is an inflammatory joint condition that can cause those symptoms, but usually waxes and wanes. A blood test called a serum uric acid level can be done, as well as obtaining a sample of joint fluid to look for microscopic crystals in the joint. It can be treated with medications and diet modification. Other potential causes of the pain could be tendonitis or a pinched nerve in your neck. ...Read more

Armpit swelling & burning pain for 3 weeks. Now have burning pain in shoulder blades & stiff back. Do I have cancer?

Armpit swelling & burning pain for 3 weeks. Now have burning pain in shoulder blades & stiff back. Do I have cancer?

Have anexam: The lymph nodes in your arm pits may be fighting some sort of infection and your depleted condition and tension/fatigue could have affected your back. See a Dr to find the cause(s) and get some relief. While I'd be silly to declare that you don't have cancer latent somewhere - I don't see any reason to think you do. Ask the doctor who does your exam/lab work to evaluate that possibility. Best! ...Read more

Hi ive been getting like a burning pain in my right shoulder and its there all day doesnt go away and its now goin down my arm to do u no what it could be?

Hard to say: My best guess without examining you is that you have some inflammation in your shoulder. This commonly causes "radicular" symptoms down your arm... Neck also has to be examined.. Good news is that with proper treatment your likely to improve soon. I hope you can find even a primary care provider...No need for a specialist at this point. ...Read more
