i have nerve damage on my back right shoulder blade and very painful, but he does not know why i am extremely itchy and have a few red spots their?

? shingles ?

Nerve_injury
Very regional neuropathy, especially following a dermatome, may occur following herpes infection. This may cause very regional red spots or even blisters as well as dysesthesia with burning, itching, and intense pain. These may flare up now and then, but leave you with persistent discomfort. It is somewhat more common in the elderly, especially those with a history of bad chickenpox as a child.

Tingling on left side back shoulder since pregnancy of third child. Could it be nerve damage from pregnancy It's been over 2 years.

Consider

Not sure whether this is or not related to your labor and delivery, but some diagnoses to be considered include: notalgia paresthetica, neck or thoracic spine problems, nerve issues over brachial plexus, intercostal nerve issues, etc. Perhaps a local neurologist can examine you and discern a diagnosis.

Can adhd meds cause nerve damage? ie numbness in fingers and joints, neck/shoulder tenseness, crippling sciatic nerve pain. Are these all related?

No. Stimulants can

Joints
constrict blood vesselsraise blood pressure (usually by 5-6 mm Hg) & ⬆ pulse (usually by 5-6 beats/minute), but they don't cause impingement of nerve roots with numbness, tingling & pain in the areas served by specific nerves. See your primary care to initiate evaluation for the cause of your symptoms.

Does nerve damage and similar symptoms to ulnar nerve entrapment go along with Spengels Disease. I suffer from a raised scapula when flexing pectorali?

Two different things

Open-uri20120318-23833-1ugmy84
You mentioned at least two different things. Sprengel's Disease is a rare congenital deformity where one scapula is higher than another. The other thing you described is a "winged" scapula, where it "sticks out" when pressing against a wall. This is from damage to the Long Thoracic Nerve. The treatment for Sprengels' is surgery, which could conceivably damage the LTN and lead to winging.

Can pain in your scapula/shoulder blade associated with a separated shoulder?

Shoulder Blade Pain

Extremity-joint-shoulder
Pain from a separated shoulder usually is limited to the A-C joint where the shoulder separated. Is your scapula pain right over the shoulder blade? Has your separated shoulder healed? If you have scapula pain when you raise your arm up sideway (abduction), but no pain at the A-C joint then I do not see a relationship and would look for another cause.

I have sharp pain near the bottom of right shoulder blade. It only lasts for a second, but happens every few minutes. Touching scapula area produces similar sensation.

Several poss...

Costochondritis
Two things come to mind. This pain could be muscular, like "costochondritis," and might respond to heat and anti-inflammatories. Also, I wonder about early shingles, especially if the pain is reproduced by light touch in that area. If there is (or soon is) a rash there, and if the location of the pain is only on one side of your body, this could be it. Try the heat & rest over weekend be seen Mon

Sensation loss

If you cut a nerve at your wrist you would lose sensation to some of your fingers and the function of your had woud be uncoordinated. It would also hurt.
