I noticed a bony lump on the top of my left shoulder bone. Not paining but it's grinding when rotate the shoulder. I lift weights. Cause for worry?

Prob AC joint: The AC joint is on the top of your shoulder, about 2 inches from the outside edge. I suspect this is what is bothering you. It is easily irritated by repetitive movement and strain. It would take an exam to know exactly where your problem is. Back off on your lifting and try some ibuprofen. If it doesn't go away, see your doctor. ...Read more

Pain in left shoulder blade for several years, accompanied by local (skin) partial numbness, small lump towards top right that can be moved and grinds?

Numbness, lumps: These could be related, as a lump (nodule or mass) may cause pressure on a superficial nerve in that area. Grinding is common with some people's joints (crepitus) and if not painful is of little concern. If the lump and not the joint is making the grinding noise, perhaps it is time to get it checked out! ...Read more

I stretched my left arm over my left shoulder-not something I normally do. A itching lump arose 2 days later, but no pain. Did I strain a lymph node?

No: No, you can't strain a lymph node by stretching. If the lump is itching and is in your armpit, it could be a clogged sweat gland that has caused a pimple to form. If it gets big enough over the next few days, it would be good to see a doctor to know what it is. ...Read more

Spinal = spinal tap?: If you mean spinal as spinal tap, consider this- a persistent CSF leak can cause a headache with standing that is relieved with lying down. This is a common but under recognized problem after a spinal tap.

Tingling in one shoulder blade however is hard to explain. Why did you have a spinal tap? Perhaps an answer lies there. ...Read more
