I'm 28 & have nerofibromatosis I have this fire burning sensation on my right shoulder blade area it goes in the side of my neck...Please help :)?

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
