What can causing intermittent tingling under one shoulder blade? Could it be shingles? 

What can causing intermittent tingling under one shoulder blade? Could it be shingles? 

No: I say no because u said intermittent, so am presuming this has been going on for a while. Commonly, tingling or some sensation...Itchy, pain... Occurs prior to the outbreak of the rash of shingles, but generally this happens within 10 days. The rash is like crops of tiny blisters that occur along a nerve path on only one side of the body. Likely tingle will resolve on own. If not, c the doc. ...Read more

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?

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

I get random tingling/crawling/goosebump feelings on my back under my right shoulder blade. It happens at random. What could it be?

This is very likely: a temporary nerve compression or dysfunction. The tingling nature of your symptom suggests nerve involvement. Something might be pressing on a nerve near your shoulder blade (could it more likely happen when you are lying on your back/shoulder blade?) The reassuring thing is it sounds transient and resolves quickly. Unless it worsens in frequency or intensity, or spreads in location, OK to watch. ...Read more
