Physical therapist used electrical acupuncture on my neck and shoulders. It caused a pressure feeling in L shoulder n front of chest. Normal or heart?

Not exactly sure: Why it caused pressure in your chest? It is always important to insure that the person who performs acupuncture on you - is properly trained to do so. (I am not suggesting that the physical therapist wasn't trained however). ...Read more

What would little tiny electrical shocks I feel in my lower back and shoulder blades be caused by?

What would little tiny electrical shocks I feel in my lower back and shoulder blades be caused by?

Multiple Things: Many sources can result in referred pain to the shoulder blade. Along with the neurogenic sources like cervical (c6 for example) and the suprascapular nerve, we also see many patients with occult shoulder pathology have referred pain to this area. Patients who are very flexible can also have occult shoulder instability refer pain to this area.

Have electrical shock/syrong bibrations through my arms and legs when I raise them above shoulder level?

Shooting arm pain: Do you have any neck pain? Pinched nerves in the neck can cause such pain. However better to see a neurologist, nervous system specialist, to rule out Multiple Sclerosis. A CT scan of Cervical spine and or a MRI of Brain and Neck could give quick answers. But you must seek medical attention rather than waiting for symptoms to go away on their own. ...Read more

Something happened in my shoulder and felt like it was just hanging there. I regained feeling soon but it hurts to move a day later. What can I do?

Something happened in my shoulder and felt like it was just hanging there. I regained feeling soon but it hurts to move a day later. What can I do?

'dead arm' (MDI): At your age that feeling u had sounds like'dead arm syndrome'.Basically, your shoulder joint can partially slip out of place (subluxate) and it can feel like it is'hanging there' and sometimes feel like your whole arm goes dead for a brief period of time, then it reduces and feels 'normal'.This is fairly common in' loose-jointed' females. I would reccommend seeing an ors for evaluation of 'mdi'. ...Read more

I'm currently feeling shoulder pain sufferred during a shoulder workout 2 days ago? Can I keep working out (except shoulders) or should I stop?

Hi in my shoulder now and again I keep getting a funny feeling its as if an elastic band is snapping, could anyone tell me what this is please?

Sound ; tactile crepitations emanate from where levator scapulae muscle inserts on superior scapula angle (ssa), which acts like guitar pick ; strums distal levator as it encounters ssa as entire shoulder mechanism is in motion of relative rotation in saggital plane. Often heard across the room. Locus exquisitely tender in fibromyalgia sufferers. ...Read more

I think I popped my shoulder whilst biking. I was just a tiny little bump. 3 months on I'm still feeling pain should it really take this long to heal?

I think I popped my shoulder whilst biking. I was just a tiny little bump. 3 months on I'm still feeling pain should it really take this long to heal?

3 months seems long: A shoulder injury from biking should be evaluated by a sports medicine doctor or an orthopedic doctor if the injury does not heal up quickly. Perhaps a ligament (holding 2 bones together) was damaged. Sometimes there is impingement, where a ligament or bone is pressing on another ligament or muscle. After initial treatment, physical therapy for a few weeks should help regain normal mobility. ...Read more

Diagnosed with cll. Told stage 0 but feeling bloated and on and off pains in shoulder blades.

Diagnosed with cll. Told stage 0 but feeling bloated and on and off pains in shoulder blades.

Possible!: I think you are referring to rai stage 0. This means you have elevated lymphocytes but with no enlarged lymph nodes or spleen. If not done, you would need ct scan to check for enlarged spleen which can cause bloating and feeling full quickly. However, these symptoms are atypical and less likely to be directly related to cll. Check with your oncologist! ...Read more

The past 2 days my left shoulder has been giving me a ache feeling it comes and goes. What could this be from?

Some ideas: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, but here is some good general information.

Various parts of the shoulder can get strained. A tear/rip/break/dislocation wouldn't be some of the time, but would hurt all of the time.
The area where the arm is attached (rotator cuff) is a common spot. Various muscles can get strained. ...Read more

I have a tingling feeling on my back right shoulder blade. Feels very weird and comes and goes. What could this be?

Mononeuropathy: It sounds like a small nerve is acting up. Sometimes this can happen due to injury (which I assume you didn't have) and sometimes due to medical conditions. If you don't have any other health problems, and you otherwise feel well, it is reasonable to watch and wait. If it persists over time, or becomes worse, you should see your doctor for a basic checkup. ...Read more

Hello, I am feeling this crazy tingling under my left shoulder blade. It feels so odd but doesn't hurt. Could it be serious?

Perhaps not so: Some patients will rarely experience a tingling irritating sensation over the middle of the shoulder blade or even below, and that is a problem locally perhaps secondary to trauma or virus, termed notalgia paresthetica. A thoracic disc may compress an intercostal nerve, and cause symptoms. Probably not a sign of progressive disease, but have your doctor examine it. ...Read more
