I get chest pains and at the same time a burning sensation between my shoulder blades I've got 2 dised disc in my neck but would this cause the chest pains?

Can acid reflux cause burning sensation in left shoulder and arm pit chest area. If I touch where it hurts it hurts worse?

Can acid reflux cause burning sensation in left shoulder and arm pit chest area. If I touch where it hurts it hurts worse?

No, this isn't GERD: This symptoms constellation is not consistent with reflux disease. It should be checked out just the same. The fact that the pain is worse when you touch the area suggests that it is either musculoskeletal or nerve pain. Is it related to meals? I'm wondering why you are associating this with reflux? The best way to approach this is to visit with your doc and have an exam done with some tests. ...Read more

Confirmed frozen shoulder; will that cause burning sensation down effected arm? Not constant, thru to pinky; start pt fri; no meds or cortisone shots

Possibly: It is unusual for the pain to go down the arm to the finger. If there is also neck pain, you need to be concerned about a radiculopathy or herniated disc in the neck as the cause. This is due to compression of the nerve that goes from the neck down to the arm. It is also possible that you have both the frozen shoulder and the compressed nerve both contributors to the pain. ...Read more

My left shoulder hurts if I put pressure on it for more then 5 minutes, when I rotate it, it pops with what feels like a cool burning sensation why?

Snap Crackle Pop...: That sounds like an unstable shoulder joint and needs to be examined by a good shoulder doctor (orthopedist)
However, something like that just doesn't appear. Did you injure it? Exercise it a lot? If not, it would be unusual at your age to have an unstable shoulder. However, it CAN happen to anyone. The tendons, ligaments or cartilage may have worn down or torn, so go see someone about it. ...Read more

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
