Would Bracial Plexus Damage Cause Scapular Dyskenisis And Neck Pain
Could sharp pain between my shoulder blade and spine be attributed to my brachial plexus injury and suprascapular nerve compression.
If scapular instability is the cause of thoracic outlet syndrome, would rib resection/scalenectomy resolve neck & scapula pain?
More complex: Thoracic outlet syndrome surgery includes, often, first rib resection and/or scalenectomy, but there are different surgical approaches and also, pectoralis minor decompressions. Scapular instability may or may not be present, and this may represent problems in the upper brachial plexus. Since this is so individualized and particular in most cases, best to discuss with experienced vascular surg. ...Read more
Chronic whiplash injury and luq has malfunctioned. Brachial plexus triggers nerve symptoms but nerves not injured. Starting rehab. Healing possible?
Get diagnosis first: Be efficient, and get answers as to why your injury did not fully heal. Not uncommon is an injury to the brachial plexus from shoulder strap, with eventual scarring, called thoracic outlet syndrome. Therapy does help, but is a specific approach, such as felderkreis work. Both EMG and ultrasound studies could pin down precise mechanism. If you have tos, about 85% success with conservative rx. ...Read more
I have lumbar hypolordosis, sacroiliac joint pain and sciatic nerve pain and numbness, can these symptoms be linked?
Can cervical radiculopathy cause shoulder "joints" pain? Would it give a sense of impingement in shoulder area?
Yes it can.: The upper cervical nerves C4 and C5 innervates the shoulder. You will then likely have pinched nerve at C3/4 or C4/5. Shoulder joint wear and tear is also common and can make it confusing. It is unlikely for you to have both. You need spine surgeon and a shoulder specialist to help you out. ...Read more
What can cause front neck spasms and pain swelling around clavicle? I have Ehlers Danlos Sundrome could this be dislocation or cervical spine bulge?
Burning sensation near intersection of right acromiom and scapula radiating to deltoid, with lower thoracic spine or scapular pain. Possible causes?
Sounds like a pinch-: Ed nerve in the neck/tspine , causing all your symptoms. Acromion is a part of the scapula, so I am unsure which specific area are you referring to (by calling it the intersection of ac. With scap.)? See an orthopod to be evaluated/investigated, so treatment could be started. Good luck ; happy holidays. ...Read more
Can reversed lordotic alignment of the cervical spine cause moderate to severe pain and muscle spasms between the shoulder blades?
Possibly: This is something that radiologists comment on as well as chiropractors. The cervical spine should have a normal lordotic curve. If the neck is straight or reversed in X-ray this could be normal for a patient but us abnormal statistically. You really cannot diagnose the source of pain from X-ray or MRI. If the symptoms have persisted greater than two weeks then it is time to see your Doc. ...Read more
Deep burning pain near infraspinatus muscle radiating to upper deltoid, and scapulothoracic inflammation/cracking - possible diagnosis or diagnostic?
Nerve entrapment: Could be anything from a nerve entrapment in the region of your pain symptoms or simply nerve irritation due to inflammation, trauma, or a muscle disorder. Best to be seen by a neurologist for further information. I doubt the disorder would be in the brain or spinal cord itself although nothing can be 100% ruled out on just what you're saying without studies and a good examination. ...Read more
Transverse cervical nerves, do they relate to a vertebrae, which one? Would irritation cause throat, neck, shoulder pain
I have a bulging disc at c5/c6 with radiating pain left upper arm/forearm could this also cause referred pain to thoracic facet joint area?.
Does nerve damage and similar symptoms to ulnar nerve entrapment go along with spengels disease. I suffer from a raised scapula when flexing pectorali?
Two different things: You mentioned at least two different things. Sprengel's disease is a rare congenital deformity where one scapula is higher than another. The other thing you described is a "winged" scapula, where it "sticks out" when pressing against a wall. This is from damage to the long thoracic nerve. The treatment for sprengels' is surgery, which could conceivably damage the ltn and lead to winging. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does chronic radial artery occlusion cause sharp pain un hand at various points such as elbow wrist shoulder. If not what would cause pain?
Shoulder pain-popping, with arm/hand pain numbness. Done pt, tens, and cervical epidurals. Mri of neck ok emg showed abnormalities but symptoms worse?
EMG should show : If you had a normal cervical spine MRI it is no surprise that epidurals were ineffective. The EMG you said is abnormal - it should suggest the nerves affected and allow your pain management physician to develop a diagnosis and treatment options. If your doctor can not seem to help, consider obtaining another medical opinion. ...Read more
Can a cervical herniated disc/ stenosis cause localized moderate pain continously at ribs, base of scapula or would gallbladder be more likely.
Not typically: A disc herniation in the neck can cause neck pain, headaches, and pain or numbness running into the arm. But would not likely cause pain in the location you are describing. If it is spine related, it would typically involve the thoracic spine, but i suspect from what you are describing it is not spine related. ...Read more
