Can my neck/arm pain be a result of  bankart repair shoulder surgery  2yrs ago? nerve pain from neck down left arm, started 6 months after surgery

Probably not: If you had a bankart repair and did well for 6 months and started having neck pain running down your left arm, it is more likely coming from a "pinched nerve" in your neck.

I have broad osteophyte complex w/ moderate foraminal stenosis in C6/7.  Neck pain, esp. left shoulder & arm.  Is a bone spur pressing on nerve root?

Yes: Is a bone spur pressing on nerve root? Yes, most likely. That's what osteophyte complex means --- a bone spur. The foramen is the canal through which your nerve route travels. If there is a spur there, you will get pain in that nerve root. ...Read more

Sharp pain in my left shoulder blade. Neck pain radiates behind my ear. Shoulder pain and soreness. And little arm soreness as well. Pinched nerve?

Discuss with MD: You have a lot going on for your age, please discuss this with your doctor, you may warrant some further testing. This is not a good forum for this question as we can not diagnose "pinched nerve" without examination and testing. Your doctor may order a nerve conduction test coupled with an emg, or an MRI if they have not done so already. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

3 yrs ago diagnosed with pinch nerve, did physical therapy & chiro. Now again for ten months, severe pinching/pain in neck, shoulder, elbow, lwr back.

NSAIDs/Injections: I am assuming you had an appropriate workup that confirmed a pinched nerve. If not see a medical provider for testing. Other treatment options include anti-inflammatories, repeat PT, cortisone injections if appropriate. Muscle relaxers and analgesics could be helpful. Speak with your medical provider. Good luck ...Read more
