Can a pinched nerve in  back cause shoulder blade pain and finger twitching, breast pain? Waiting for ultrasound results on breast.

See what your breast ultrasound shows, and talk with your general surgeon/breast surgeon as to cause of your breast pain. Ensure it is not pain over your left chest as you may need to ensure there is no cardiac cause to this. Scapular pain and finger symptoms could be related to cervical spine pathology. See your doctor for examination. ...Read more

Lots of push to get into alternative therapies by entrepreneurial promoters, but you need to know what is wrong, as things can get worse rather rapidly with certain activities. Sounds like you do have nerve issues, and consider thoracic outlet, but also more peripheral nerve issues. ...Read more
