MRI w/without Gad: Depending on how high or low on your shoulder blade, this area localizes to either the C4 or t2 nerve roots. An entrapped neurofibroma at one of these levels may be producing the burning pain. An MRI of the cervical spine extended to the high cervical region with and without gadolinium should show any abnormalities in these regions. You would then need to decide surgery or pain management. ...Read more

Patients who are very flexible can also have occult shoulder instability refer pain to this area. Please consider seeing your doctor. ...Read more

Right shoulder has radiating pain burning sensation all the way down to hand?

Radiculopathy: The most common cause for a burning pain radiating from the shoulder, down the arm, to the hand is a cervical radiculopathy. This is usually caused by compression of one of the cervical nerves as they leave the spine. The compression is caused by a herniated or bulging disc or arthritis. See: http://bit.

Burning sensation on skin of upper arm/shoulder for 2 weeks, but nothing there, skin looks completely normal. No rashes or other symptoms. What is it?

Burning sensation on skin of upper arm/shoulder for 2 weeks, but nothing there, skin looks completely normal. No rashes or other symptoms. What is it?

Neuropathy: Sounds like a nerve problem, so we'd call it neuropathy. It can be caused by anything damaging a nerve. Shingles or herpes can do this, but if it has been going on for 2 weeks I'd expect there to be spots or bumps or something showing on the skin by now. It can also be caused by your immune system attacking the nerve or by the nerve being pinched in your spine or elsewhere. See your doc for help. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of cervical nerve impingement. Is it applicable to my condition since I have pain &cramps in neck&shoulder with burning sensation?

Possibly: Pain in shoulder which moves into the arm, especially down into the fingers is often related to a cervical nerve root. But if it's only in the upper arm there are other potential causes. Lung problems, anginal heart pain, liver or gallbladder problems can cause pain in the shoulder and upper arm. If you're having this much pain you should be evaluated. At least then you can be treated for the pain. ...Read more
