Go see your doc: One of the things you have to rule out is if he is having symptoms consistent with cervical radiculopathy/radiculitis. This is an irritation of the nerves arising from the neck which may be due to a leaking disc or stenosis. Bring him to a physician so that he could be examined and diagnostic studies could be ordered such as x-ray or even an MRI of the cervical spine & emg-ncv of the upper ext. ...Read more

I'm having this shooting muscle pain near my right shoulder blade on my back. It's exacerbated when I turn my neck. Anything I can do to relieve pain?

Muscle pain: Brandon, seems like you have a "pulled muscle" which can cause sharp pain when used (turning your head). At your age, it should recover completely. Use heat (like in a hot shower) and stretch. Find rhomboid muscle stretch on youtube or some site and you will be fine. Nothing to worry about if you had no injury or accident and there are no other symptoms. ...Read more

Options: This could be muscle spasm, neck problem, shoulder problem, or even a spinal disc pushing in a nerve when you lift heavy things. I would suggest anti inflammatories, rest , lower wring the intensity of your work out. If it does not improve, see a pt or your doctor for better eval. ...Read more

Could a data entry job cause arthritis in my neck? Or pinched nerve? Right shoulder has shooting pain at the end of the work day. Both ache and stiff.

Could a data entry job cause arthritis in my neck? Or pinched nerve? Right shoulder has shooting pain at the end of the work day. Both ache and stiff.

No: You are 33. Arthritis is the culmination of age and weight-bearing stress. Data entry has not had that effect upon your spine—yet. Shooting pain? Yes, this could be related to posture or repetitive bending/twisting which serves to rupture disks. Avoid excessive flexion (chin to chest position). But if problematic and nsaids, tylenol, capsaicin, and exercise don't help, time to see your doc. ...Read more
