How can I help you?
i have been suffering from acute pain under my shoulder blade
more severe in the right
this is accompanied by neck pain
giddiness and numbnes in my right arm
the xray seems clear, so does the Cervical MRI
I m not sure what to do next
can u suggest something?
May I know your age?
Are you on any other medications?
Let me guide you regarding this.
and some pain killers to manage pain
Was the MRI done for your cervical spine?
with a screening of the entire spine
my ortho mentioned tht the MRI is normal
Since it was normal, there is no need to worry.
It was the right thing that you have done by consulting the ortho.
It seems that the pain killers you are using might not be helping you much.
It might be needed to recheck with the doctor if the pain is persisting.
do i need to consult an orho again?
As the pain is persisting, you may have to consult again.
Iw ill explain how it occurs. That might help you to better understand the situation.
As explained before, your investigations seem to be fine.
Only way is to see again, if there is any other organic causes.
If nothing is there, then the only possibility remaining is stress. It does not mean that you are thinking that there is a pain.
Sometimes, stress causes release of certain chemicals in the body.
This itself will cause pain at different parts.
So as you said, sometimes this also might be a cause.
But this can be confirmed only by a orthopedic surgeon.
, after a proper physical examination and nvestigations.
should I see a cervical spine specialist?
Orthopedician would be fine.
can u recommend a good doctor?
Sure, I can guide you with that.
May I know where you are placed?
