Stiff neck that clicks when I move it, pins and needles from neck down right arm. R shoulder pain. What should I do? Numbness in arm- dead arm?

Cervical spine. It suggests something wrong either in the cervical spine or the brachial plexus (the complex of nerves leading into your arm). You will need examination by a neurologist or hand surgeon and probably require imaging studies after a full exam. Go soon. The earlier neuropathy is corrected, the better the outcome. Good luck.

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. 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. Read more...

Should I go to ER 56 yr old female bp left arm 130/90 74 pulse bp right arm 159/93 achy non sharp pain top center chest, left shoulder pain radiating from neck area, weakness in left arm

Any . Any chest pain must always be taken seriously. Cardiac pain can present in many different ways, but is often beneath the sternum (substernal), can radiate to the neck or arms, and is often associated with palpitations, sweating, and nausea. Pain from the aorta, the large blood vessel in the chest, can send pain to the back, and can cause blood pressure discrepancies in the arms. Pain from the esophagus or from the lungs can cause chest pain. Muscle pain can also cause chest pain, often for no discernable reason. If a patient is having new chest pain with other symptoms, then they should seek out a medical evaluation. Read more...
Yes. Er eval is a good idea. You have chest pain and left arm symptoms radiating from the neck, these could represent angina, which means an impaired blood supply to the heart muscle from the coronary arteries. There are certainly other causes of chest and arm pain, but your combination of symptoms sounds concerning. It's better to be sure, go to the er. Read more...

Chest and back and left shoulder pain, slightly numb left arm for weeks (like having cramps), hard to breathe. Gerd? Or more than that?

More than that. Gerd does not typically cause any extremity symptoms. The pain and numbness and difficulty breathing are worrisome, but less so given your age and listed lack of any other health issues. Much of your pain could be caused by a cervical spine issue, but not shortness of breath. Get in to see your pcp. Read more...

Yesterday I went into the ER with left arm and shoulder pain. They did know test other than my vitals and said I had a pinched nerve can I trust that?

Pinched nerve. Sounds like the ER folks did a diagnosis of exclusion, i.e., ruled out some things and pinched nerve was left. To be sure, a neurologist needs to do a nerve conduction test called an EMG. After you know what is going on, consider massage and other natural and non-invasive treatments in addition to what your doc suggests. Peace and good health. Read more...

Could a nerve problem be causing such symptoms? Such as left shoulder pain when breathing deeply and lying down, left arm tingling at all times.

Yes Possibly. Left arm pain and tingling certainly sounds like nerve pain, but the deep breathing and lying down also raise the possibility of other sources. Although you are very young, left arm pain can also be radiating pain from the heart or chest area. Start with a visit to your regular physician to narrow down the possibilities. Read more...
Yes. As tingling in arm is constant, and worsens with change of position, my best guess would be nerve compression within the shoulder. Breathing deeply is like the positional change, it puts further pressure of the nerve as the lungs fill with air and compress anatomy upwards into the nerve compression site. See an orthopedist.
