I have left shoulder pain that is down to shoulder blade & is now causing arm pain everyday. What can I do or what could cause this?
Pinched nerve?: There are many things that can present this way. Part of the differential is a cervical radiculopathy or radiculitis (this is when nerves in your neck become pinched or irritated). If your symptoms persist or worsen (such as weakness), seek medical attention. Commonly (if this is what you do have.), a trial of physical therapy is very successful, but occasionally, surgery may be needed. ...Read more
Fell down stairs, hit L shoulder on railings between shoulder blade and spine. Mild pain in shoulder, tingling in forearm & fingers. Did I hit a nerve?
Probably: It appears likely that there has been some nerve injury in view of your symptoms. As inflammation and swelling subside the nerve symptoms should improve. However if injury to the vertebral area occurred, there could be disc injury causing the tingling in the arm. See your physician if symptoms persist or worsen. ...Read more

No: A pinched nerve around the elbow will only cause problems from the elbow down to the fingers.

Hi Doc here are my symptoms pinching pain in back of shoulder, shooting pain in shoulder and down arm, pain in front of shoulder also can been 5 month?
Seek consult: I would recommend you see either an orthopedic surgeon or a neurosurgeon as you may have a problem with a disc in your neck. I sounds suspicious for a "pinched nerve" or herniated cervical disc. A physical examination and possible a MRI would be helpful. Short term medication and physical therapy are often all that is needed for resolution of your symptoms. ...Read more
I have right shoulder pain that radiates in the back and down arms. What could it be? Would dehydration cause this?
Doubt dehydration: It should not cause right shoulder pain. However, other options include shoulder problem if moving the shoulder changes the pain. Otherwise, it could be related to lung problem, diaphragm, or upper abdominal problem that irritates the diaphragm and radiates pain. Need to see your doctor for x ray and physical exam. ...Read more
I have three compression fractures in my back and now havin neck and shoulder pain running down my arm what causes this? None
If you have compression fractures, arthritis, and degenerative disc disease in your back, it's likely the same processes are occurring in your neck. When the nerve roots in your neck are pinched or irritated by bulging discs or osteophytes (bone spurs), you could have pain, numbness or other sensations in your arms and hands. (it's like having sciatica in your arms.) if left untreated, you could eventually develop weakness in your upper extremities.
See your doctor about these symptoms. He/she may want to arrange an MRI of your neck.
Good luck! ...Read more
