Pinched Nerve: While there are many causes of arm pain and numbness one of the most common causes is cervical radiculopathy. This occurs when one of the nerves leaving the neck gets compressed as it leaves the spine and travels down the arm. Compression may occur due to degenerative/bulging discs or arthritic bone spurs contacting the nerve. See your physician if these symptoms last longer than 2 weeks. ...Read more

What causes pain between the shoulder blades and causing a dull sensation down you right arm?

Musculoskeletal : Strain and/or injury to the muscles of your upper back is most likely. A less likely cause would be degeneration or protrusion of a thoracic intervertebral disk impinging on a nerve. Try rest, heat and analgesics like Ibuprofen or naprosyn and see if doesn't improve on its own. O/w, radiographic studies should be performed. ...Read more
