Your doctor can check you and tell for sure. ...Read more

I recommend you get a good exam by a spine specialist, then follow instructions on use of medications, stretchs and activities modifications. ...Read more

I am having excruciating pain under my left shoulder blade which is running down my arm and causing tingling in my hand.

I  am having excruciating pain under my left shoulder blade which is running down my arm and causing tingling in my hand.

Pinched nerve: Because patients having cardiac problems can have these symptoms, you should have this ruled out. But the most common cause is an irritation of a nerve in the neck by a bone spur or herniation that can cause pain or numbness that runs down the arm into the hand. An MRI can usually show the cause of the problem if it does not resolve. Thank you for the question. ...Read more

Vibrating in left foot. I have spondylosis and a bulging disc. Pain from my back goes down my left leg.somedays I cant walk or move?

I'm not sure what: the question is. The starting point would be bed rest for a couple of days then physical therapy. If EMG confirms muscle loss in the leg you should consider surgery. I would start the therapy before surgery however to improve your chance of a good outcome. ...Read more
