Shoulder pain neck nerve

Common Questions and Answers about Shoulder pain neck nerve


Avatar n tn A number of possibilities occur, generally involving problems with the neck and its bone structure, musculature, and nerves. For example, nerve compression in the neck due to neck trauma, cervical disk problems, or nerve root problems could cause the pain and numbness you're describing. But without a proper workup it's impossible to say. I suggest you have this looked at by your doctor, and/or a neurologist.
Avatar m tn You may certainly have wrist tendonitis, but why the neck and shoulder pain. The pain and numbness you are having could be from your neck and an EMG would assist with that answer. It is a nerve conduction study. You also need an xray and MRI of your neck to rule out that as a cause for your numbness. I would see a neurologist.
Avatar f tn Went to emergency with severe pain in right shoulder, up into the neck and down the right arm (woke up with it). Have been on 500 mg. Naproxen , twice daily, for 3 weeks, and 10 mg. Pms-cyclobenzaprine every 8 hours. I'm still experiencing pain plus some new tingling down the arm. Should I be going back to my doctor? It seems this is taking an unusually long time to get better.

Avatar f tn He cracked my neck, and I have had excruciating pain going from the left sied of my neck down to just under my shoulder blade. I even had accupuncture several times, but that gets a little too expensive. This pain is absolutely killing me, it hurts so bad and feels like there is a pick or shard or knife wedged in my shoulder blade. I s there ANYTHING I can do to at least lessen the pain? Please help!
Avatar f tn There is a possibility that your symptoms are due to nerve compression in the cervical region or at the level of shoulder or elbow joint. Pinched nerve can cause pain in the muscles and numbness. Since you suffer from MS, this possibility cannot be ruled out as a cause of your current symptoms. MS is known to cause muscle aches and pains and paresthesias like tingling numbness, throbbing and stabbing pain. Please discuss both these possibilities with your treating doctor.
Avatar m tn Neck pain with numbness in fingers, neck is locked in, feel very lite headed, any ideas?
Avatar f tn I have shoulder pain that feels like someone is sticking a knife between my shoulder and ribs. if my arm is not across my stomach it is numb.
Avatar f tn t have the constant pain like I did, but if I try to stretch my arm or move it a certain way, I get a burning feeling the runs from my right shoulder all the way down my arm to my hand, the burning pain usually goes away after a couple min. I can still use my arm, but I don't have the same range of motion, I can't lie with my arm under my head, and even trying to shave my legs is a chore. Anyone have any idea what might be wrong. Would an exray show if something is wrong with the muscle?
Avatar m tn I get migraines in the back of my neck and right shoulder and a sting also around my right shoulder blade at times. Depends on how I hold my arm the pain will travel down my shoulder and arm . It doesn't matter if brushing my teeth,rinsing dishes, folding towels,typing,writing,driving everything makes me have the nerve pain. I am taking 800 mg ibuprofen 2 times daily and sometimes a Valium at night to relax neck and help me sleep.
Avatar m tn Im sorry I have the same exact pain, mine comes from my neck down my shoulder with numbness in my arms. nerve tests were neg; im having a mri and i know nothing will show. the pain is dull and aching and drives me nuts. i take percocet and well that helps get me thru jumping out the window from the pain! I am researching alot because if the mri says nothing, i know i have pain so theres got to be something?
Avatar f tn I have nerve pain in my arms and left leg related to this. Have you tried Lyrica for the nerve pain? It really did help me. I have been off it because we've been trying for our first child and really notice a signifant increase in pain. I don't think massage would be harmful if the person is trained in back and neck injuries. It actually helped me quite a bit. Also consider trying tizanadine or brand name zanalex for the spasms.
1284111 tn?1271592140 When it first started I had big neck pain also. Now the neck pain is almost all gone but if I work hard(mechanic work or heavy physical activity) it all come back right fast(neck pain and shoulder). If i stay idle for a couple of days, the pain will go away but not totally. So far I had X rays or cervical done, CT scan of neck also. Doctor says that it shows arthrose in there but they could not really see any herniated discs or anything explaining pinched nerve in neck.
Avatar m tn t turn my head at all without feeling acute pain. During that time, I also realised (painless) swelling on the side of my neck that was twisted, and the shoulder on the same side also sagged below the opposite shoulder. Although I've since recovered, sometimes when I do exercises that involve shoulder and neck movement, the injury comes back. There's pain in the exact same spot and my shoulder starts to sag.
Avatar n tn My husband hurt his shoulder working it is around his left shoulder blade the pain is raidating down his arm and is making his hand numb.
Avatar f tn “Pains that occur along the top of the shoulder, and radiate into the side of the upper arm into the deltoid muscle, and further down the arm, even into the fingers, may be related to nerve impingement (pinched nerve), which can originate in the neck (cervical spine). Depending on the side of the hand, or the fingers affected will determine the nerve branch involved.
Avatar f tn They will be able to do nerve conduction tests to find any nerve that might be under pressure from something that cant be seen on an x-ray.The extreme cold makes the nerve pain worse in my neck,head and shoulder all the way down to my fingers.The feeling is like being pricked by a thousand needles and feels like I am standing by a bon fire,with cramping and muscle spasms,numbness.If this sounds like anything that you might be going through,you ought to go see your family doctor like I said.
Avatar n tn The thing I can not understand is I have little to no pain in my neck. I do however have tremendous pain in my right shoulder blade and down my right arm into my hand. This has been going on for about 3 months and when I cough I have sharp pain in my shouder blade. Is this a normal sensation for a compressed nerve?
Avatar m tn I have extreme pain starting in my neck,shoulder back , and chest. (right side) When I say extreme I mean extreme! this all started 4 years ago when I sprained my shoulder. This hasn't gotten better its gotten extremely worst i can barely pick up my son.
1422878 tn?1284584593 im having neck arm hurts. and my hand is tingling. my neck hurts when i move it.... and it makes a cracking sound when try to move it. What is going on?
1690048 tn?1307555227 This was supposed to get rid of my left shoulder and arm pain. So far no such luck. My shoulder muscles are going into spasm frequently and it is quite painful. My neck also very painful also but I expected that since I was not having a fusion. Please someone let me know if this sounds like nerve damage. I am thinking maybe I waited too long to have this done and there is some perminent damage. I had stenosis and the left side is supposed to be feeling better.
