Neck and shoulder pain radiating down arm

Common Questions and Answers about Neck and shoulder pain radiating down arm


Avatar m tn The pain starts like hot burning sensation in the shoulder, and when it radiates down my arm, it feels like the worst muscle contraction that one could imagine. Then it to travels up and down between my shoulder and elbow. My husband says it could be a pinched nerve. He says that I started complaining the day I did side plank and lifted my right arm straight up and gazing to the hand. Could that have done it? For now, I want relief from this pain and be free to enjoy my active life style.
Avatar n tn for the last several months i have been having severe pain in my shoulder, radiating down my arms and to my hands. there is numbness, weakness and loss of arm movement as well . last week i discovered two tumors on the back of my neck and another tumor on my arm between the elbow and houlder closer to the shoulder. are these tumors causing the pain or could it be something else. yesterday i bought a product called 'stop the pain' and it seems to help quite a bit.
Avatar f tn Please help.. I have back problems, but never have I experienced this much pain.. Monday I started to have pain in my neck. It felt like I hade a crick in it from sleeping on it wrong, but I was at Walmart when I started experiencing the pain. It got worse that night. The pain then started going down to my shoulders. When I laid down in my normal sleeping position, on my left side with my arm under my pillow, I couldn't put my arm under my pillow because the pain was so bad..
Avatar f tn I sometimes experience shoulder pain, pain radiating to my left breast and tingling pain in my thumb. I don't know if taking vitamin B12 and using ice and cold patches will be good for you but they certainly help me. Maybe you can ask your doctor before trying. I hope and pray for your fast recovery.

Avatar n tn I have a herniated C6 and C7 and osteophyte, diagnosed on MRI - have had nerve root cortisone injection a few months ago with minimal relief, had physio manipulations of the facet joints which relieved the neuralgic pain in the neck, shoulder and down the arm temporarily. No longer have parasthesia down middle finger but do still get intermittent pain radiating down shoulder/arm to wrist. Have had this condition for 8 months now with restrictions/weakness to left arm limiting movement/useage.
Avatar m tn 6 weeks ago I woke up with a really sore upper back and pain under my right shoulder blade. The pain is now down my tricep and along my outer forearm into my ring and pinky finger. The pain is not constant but really hurts when it does. Sometime the triecp and forearm hurt more than the upper back. I have full range of motion and no weakness. It hurts worst when driving or sitting at my computer.
Avatar n tn Neck very stiff and sore, especially when turned to either side. Pain in shoulder left shoulder joint radiating down upper arm, less on right side. Have been going to chiropractor, taking prescription pain meds. nothing is working. If anyone finds something that works, please post.
Avatar m tn I have severe left sided pain al over my body but the doctor found nerve issues in my neck- which can explain pain in the head as well as the shoulder arm and finger.

Avatar m tn i been getting sharp left side shoulder pain and travels down my left arm , sometimes i feel my arm heavy and also numb, i also sometimes get the tingly feeling on my left side
Avatar n tn I was told I may need to eat more magnesium and potassium, which I started doing. The neck pain radiates across my shoulder down the top of my arm, to my elbow. My arm feels tired, if I lift it a long time, a sore feeling. But the sharp pain is on the neck itself. I've been massaging my neck, taking hot showers with water on my neck, using one of those pillows you can heat and wrap around the neck. I thought perhaps I just pulled a muscle and it will get better with time.
Avatar m tn The "sternocleidomastoid muscles" are most likely those which are giving you radiating pain from ear down to neck/shoulder/arm(Google for picture of this muscle if unfamiliar with its location). There are two of these muscles in the superficial layers of the anterior (front) portion of the neck that make the shape of a ā€œVā€, and they are primarily helpful in rotation, flexing and extension of the head.
Avatar f tn I have pain radiating down my right side of my neck my right shoulder blade, all the way down the right arm and my pinky has no feeling anymore. I had an emg it showed slight abnormality and then had an mri done and it was completely normal. What could be going on?

Avatar n tn shoulder pain under the blade radiating down arm.
Avatar f tn Did they do endoscopy at same time if so this would cause throat irritated. If having pain from neck down shoulder and arm ask if its a nerve compression. I have major neck pain issues shoulder arm back etc.... anyway the way explained to me nerve compression in my neck is causing the shoulder arm pain and oh yes the migraine type headaches. Good luck and prayers for you with pain.
Avatar n tn It started with what was dianosed as "tennis elbow" cortisone (2 times) did not help, now it has progressed to my shoulder (the elbow is still bad), again cortisone did not help, I can not do much with the arm so injury is unlikely. Night is the worst as the pain spreads to the muscle between the shoulder and elbow and wakes me after a few hours sleep.
Avatar n tn Following this were several months of intense pain from the neck and left shoulder that has finally settled in a mostly burning sensation in the shoulder and down the arm. I also did two more MRIs of the left shoulder. I have seen 2 orthos, an MD, an NP, 2 PAs, 3 physical therapists, and received a review from a radiologist. Results? Inconclusive.
Avatar f tn so am just mentioning that. But radiating pain down one arm to elbow needs to be examined. It is MOST likely a pinched nerve as that is the way they run through that area. And exercise and ibuprofen, physical therapy if it is really bad will help.
Avatar n tn I had upper back pain that ended up radiating down my arm and back and forth. I thought everyone would think I had gone crazy stating that the pain traveled. Also I had burning sensations and tingling. Turned out to be a pinched nerve in my neck C6&C7. When this happens there are tiny nerves that go down your back and down your arms. depending on which nerver produces the different locations of pain. Usually a tingling and burning sensation are examples of nerve problems.
Avatar n tn I have pain, muscle cramp, and tingling in my shoulder. and some pain on and off down the arm. Mostly the arm feels heavy. Is this from C5-6 stenosis? Requiring surgery? It is very uncomfortable!

I had another MRI taken today, but don't have a doctors appointment until Monday August 16th.
Avatar n tn I have a swollen left breast and swelling under my arm. I also have radiating pain from my breast all the way down my left arm. Could this be breast cancer?
Avatar f tn Any pinched nerves in the neck area can cause pain to radiate down the arm. Heart conditions can also cause pain to radiate down the arm, so you should always get it checked out. Make an appointment to see your doctor to arrange imaging or xrays to be arranged to show the extent of the spinal damage. The doctor may refer you to physiotherapy who will give you information on appropriate exercises to do and may prescribe appropriate medications for you.
