Avatar m tn Neck and shoulder pain are kind of related. I have herniated discs in my neck and I get shoulder pain that goes down my arms, but I don't get numbness (at least not yet). Also, you said you get grinding. All you can do is get at least an x-ray of that area. Maybe you can go to a walk-in clinic or something. It sounds serious to me. If it was just a strain, I think it would have gone away by now.

Avatar n tn Hello I had a neck fusion at c5/c6 about 3 years ago and now I have neck pain, shoulder to shoulder pain, and pain through my left arm, tingling and some numbness on two small left fingers and some headache. My recent MRI shows I have a broad-base disk bulging at c/4/c5 with AP canal diameters of about 8 mm, @ c3/c4 minimal disk bulge and c6/c7 minimal broad-base disk bulge. Can I get the prestige disk replacement and could it help with the problems I am having?

Avatar f tn Hi, I am a 50 yr old woman and march 2009 I was having what appeared to be muscle ache in my right upper arm, this went on for a couple of weeks and then I started getting pain in my shoulder joint (right side) this then went onto aches and pain in my neck (right side).

Avatar m tn I have pain in my neck, right shoulder blade area and my right arm. The pain is different depending on what I am doing. When lowering my head to get in my car or just moving up and down, the pain is in my neck. Sitting in bed it is in my shoulder and arm and sometimes my arm will have a slight numbing sensation. Coughing and sneezing, there is shooting pains through all three. Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this?
Avatar m tn It would be difficult to determine whether your disc herniation was the primary cause of your arm symptoms, (Or if the herniation was present at its current size) If you did not have your present neck, shoulder and arm pain at the time of your prior surgeries, your treating physicians addressed your major complaints and determined ulnar nerve surgery would be appropriate. It gets a bit more complex when you have 5 arm surgeries (over what period of time?

I also have major twitching all day long, cramping, tingling, heavy pain feeling and a dull constant ache with some sharp pains as well. This pain is constant however at night is always worse.

Avatar f tn A few weeks back ,I picked up a Tv. Every since my right arm, from my shoulder to right up above my elbow hurts. It started out below the back of my shoulder. Sometimes it runs up to my neck. But most of the time its between the front of my shoulder , and just above my elbow. I am taking Metaxalone 800MG and Meloxicam 15MG. I have also had a shot right below the back of my right Shoulder and a Xray. Xray didn't show any thing, but age deterring. I just turned 49.
Avatar f tn I'm having pain in my upper arm - between my shoulder and elbow - sometimes is goes down into my hand. About 2 weeks ago had a horrible pain in my shoulder, like someone was sticking a two-pronged fork into the front of my shoulder. Now I'm having this strange pain in my arm - like a swollen feeling and like the muscle is sore. I've had similar pain several months ago and I guess it just went away. Went to the doctor at that time and he gave me a prescription for an anti-inflammatory med.
Avatar m tn What could be the cause of the pain in left side of neck to the shoulder and left arm. Sharp pain.
Avatar n tn I was in a car accident about 4 years ago and my left shoulder and arm were jammed in the door. Ever since, I seem to get a lot of periods of shoulder and arm pain - sometimes it's pain, sometimes it's aching and others it's like tingly and shooting. Because I tend to worry too much, I always think it's signs of a heart attack and have ended up in the ER twice because of it.
Avatar n tn ) and I have had a problem with my neck/shoulder/arm for some time now. It probably started around 6 months ago, with a niggling in my neck, and across my left shoulder blade area, going into the shoulder. At first i thought it was due to carrying my 6month nephew in one of those car seats. Over the next couple of months things have got really bad, with pain radiating down left arm, feeling rock hard as if muscles in spasm.
