Dr. Chaim B. Colen answered:

Pain in neck shoulder blade pinched nerve, what is beneficial for it?

Non-surgical

Extremity-joint-shoulder
Non surgical treatment should always be considered when treating pinched nerves. As Dr. Wilner points out, there are multiple modalities to trial. It sounds as if you may have a pinched nerve at C6-7 and an MRI of your cervical spine might be beneficial.

Dr. Allen P. Lu answered:

can a pinched nerve in elbow cause pain in shoulder/shoulder blade area?

No

Nursemaids_elbow
A pinched nerve around the elbow will only cause problems from the elbow down to the fingers. However, the same symptoms often represent a pinched nerve in the neck, which can feel like a pinched nerve in the elbow. Many of these resolve on their own. If it persists, you can get it examined to get a clearer answer.

Dr. Robert Masson answered:

Pain-shoulder blade, neck and top of head on one side. Pinched nerve? Treatment?

disc problem

Nerve
Depends on duration, but chronic pain in that pattern could be caused by a pinched nerve in the neck. A detailed physical and Neuro exam, if neck movement or talking on the phone in that arm aggravates symptoms, it is consistent, an MRI might be useful, if it is affecting performance or function. Otherwise anti inflammatories, rest about the neck with cardio low impact exercise useful

Can a pinched nerve cause neck pain shoulder and shoulder blade pain? or what are some different things it could be?

MANY CONSIDERATIONS

Neck
A ruptured disc in neck, thoracic outlet syndrome, pectoralis minor syndrome, Parsonage Turner syndrome, all could be considered. Even carpal tunnel may refer pain upwards, but not usually into neck. Shoulder, neck, and blade pain may be seen with internal shoulder derangements, such as rotator cuff tear. With all these thoughts, see your physician and pin this down. Then treat it.

Can a pinched nerve in back cause shoulder blade pain and finger twitching, breast pain? waiting for ultrasound results on breast.

Not from lumbar spin

Extremity-upper-fingers
No, pinched nerve in your lumbar spine cannot cause those. See what your breast ultrasound shows, and talk with your general surgeon/breast surgeon as to cause of your breast pain. Ensure it is not pain over your left chest as you may need to ensure there is no cardiac cause to this. scapular pain and finger symptoms could be related to cervical spine pathology. see your doctor for examination.

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

Open-uri20131130-31713-1ytde5d
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

Dr. Vivek Agrawal answered:

I have a constant pain in my inner right shoulder blade. Sometimes it's a burning sensation. Gets worse during stress. Is it a knot or pinched nerve?

Multiple Things

Open-uri20130123-3309-1qmefvy
Many sources can result in referred pain to the shoulder blade. Along with the neurogenic sources like cervical (C6 for example) and the suprascapular nerve, we also see many patients with occult shoulder pathology have referred pain to this area. Patients who are very flexible can also have occult shoulder instability refer pain to this area. Please consider seeing your doctor.

Dr. Dragos Luca answered:

Ive had a pain behind my shoulder blade and a tingly numb pain going down my arm.I know I have a pinched nerve,and elevated cholesterol. Heart attack?

Probably not

Open-uri20130416-14171-k82d6e
At your age a heart attack is generally unlikely especially if you have another explanation for your symptoms (pinched nerve) but either way you should see your doctor to sort it out and maybe a neurologist if it turns out to be nerve pain.

Could the numbness I am feeling be caused by a pinched nerve? I am experiencing numbness on the left side of my chest, under left arm, and back. I have had a sharp pain for 3 weeks that goes from my shoulder blade through to my chest. I was sent to the

Arguably

Arguably the worst possible cause of severe pain felt in the shoulder blade and deep into the chest would be an uncommon condition called aortic dissection. Problems with the gallbladder and heart can also cause pain in the region of the shoulder or armpit (axilla). The spinal nerve corresponding to T2 also feels an area that involves the armpits and hoop-shaped strip of skin that runs across your chest above your nipples, through your armpits, and across your back at about the same level (it also involves part of the skin on the arm). After excluding things like dissection, heart problems, and gallbladder problems, a neurosurgeon may be helpful to get to a diagnosis and some relief.
