My whole left arm sore , tingling in left back for 2 months ( upper left of back)
could it be bursitis ...The upper part of left arm hurts the most?

Nerve irritation: When you get a tingly sensation, it is usually because a nerve is irritated. Although bursitis is a possibility, a pinched nerve in your neck can cause the same symptoms. See your primary care doc, and if necessary referral to a physiatrist. These symptoms usually improve with a short course of anti-inflammatories (if you can take them) and physical therapy. ...Read more

Pain on top of left shoulder, left elbow, left forearm, wrist and ring finger and knuckle and slight pain in left upper chest. What could this be?

Physical therapy or steroids are examples. ...Read more

Hi, I am experiencing pain, redness, and significant swelling in the lymph node located above my elbow on the inside of my right arm. possible causes?
