What would be some causes for getting a tingling/numbing sensation from the shoulder blade all the way to the tip of fingers?

Irritated Situation: If you have a cardiac condition, consult your physician for help. Cardiac symptoms differ for different people. Be safe rather than sorry. Alternatively, peripheral nerve entrapment from the scapula can cause this and even impingement closer to the spine along a specific dermatome (sensory path on the skin). Lastly, shingles (chicken pox) can cause symptoms anywhere along a nerve on the back. ...Read more

Anxiety sensations: Anxiety can cause one to tense up their muscles and by doing so, can cause some tingling sensations like you describe. It seems, you have some form of anxiety as you are prescribed clonazapam, which you may know, can be habit forming. If you were my patient, and because you are young; I would work toward trying to treat your anxiety without the use of benzodiazapines, like clonazapam. Good luck. ...Read more

Shoulder blade cracked;nowleft arm goes tingling once in awhile. Can injured left shoulder cause me to feel more discomfort on elbow than my shoulder?

Tingling in arm: May be due to nerve or vascular compression (more often the former). The injury that resulted in the shoulder blade fracture may have caused another problem. (nerve root, brachial plexus, peripheral nerve) Sometimes traction to the ulnar nerve causes parasthesias down to the hand and discomfort around the elbow. A good neurological-exam possibly an EMG-NCS may need to be done to sort this out. ...Read more

Tingling in muscles? Please help, it's driving me crazy. What could cause a tingling feeling in the muscles of my shoulder? My shoulder has been stiff and sore for a little over a week, to the point where I can barely use it and have to use a heating pad

The: The most important thing is that you keep using your shoulder normally. It sounds like you may have had a bursitis in the shoulder or another problem, and now the nerves in the shoulder may be irritated. If a patient has this and don't keep moving the shoulder, then the patient can develop "frozen shoulder". To avoid this, keep doing gentle range-of-motion exercises with the shoulder, such as climbing your fingers up a wall, or hanging your hand down and performing circles with it. If this continues, or you have continued pain, then it would be reasonable to consult an orthopedist. ...Read more
