When you flex the neck and the disk bulges, it may put pressure on a nerve and temporarily cause the described symptoms. Either stop stretching that far or see a physical therapist or even a neurosurgeon to look into the matter further. ...Read more

Sounds like: Nerve irritation or injury that could be coming from your neck seem a very likely explanation for these symptoms. Assessing if neck position change the symptoms might help. A good neurological history and competent examination should sort this out. The pulsating might also suggest a vascular contribution though that can be a pain associated with nerve compression as well. ...Read more

Chest pain, hard breathing, pain of right arm because of tennis elbow reaching to neck & going down to shoulder & upper back. What is this&what can I do?

See below:: See an orthopod for the arm/shoulder pain and your gp for the chest pain, difficulty in breathing. The arm sounds more like cubital t syndrome which is known to move towards the shoulder or chest/ upper back. It does not happen with tennis elbow. You could have both though.

Be seen: Although there are multie potential causes, you would be well suited to be seen to rule out a cardiac or ply unset source if it is associated with difficulty breathing as you are describing. A pinched nerve in the neck can cause very similar symptoms to what you are describing but is usually not associated with shortness of breath. A good medical checkup would be a good place to start. ...Read more

Have a pain under my left shoulder blade that hurts when I cough or clear throat. The pain radiates down arm with little finger tingling?

Pinched nerve: Because patients having cardiac problems can have these symptoms, you should have this ruled out. But the most common cause is an irritation of a nerve in the neck by a bone spur or herniation that can cause pain or numbness that runs down the arm into the hand. An MRI can usually show the cause of the problem if it does not resolve. Thank you for the question. ...Read more
