Question: I have pain in the area of my right shoulder blade with radiating pain down my arm, with numbness into my finger tips. I have a very physical job and fear I may have pulled muscle the part I'm concerned with is the numbness. By self examination I have located the pain, there are some bouts of nausea. I have been taking 800 motrin every 6 hours and applying a heating pad.

Brief Answer:
Get xray done.

Detailed Answer:

I have read your query.

From symptoms you are explaining, it seems that you are developing cervical spondylosis.

So I advise you to have xray of cervical spine in AP and Lateral view done and send me the report.

I want to see present condition of disc space and vertebrae.

Pain and numbness in your arm or fingers is due to compression of cervical nerve which supply upper limb.

Till then have tab.aceclofenac100mg+thiocolchicoside4mg two times a day, tab.domperidone empty stomach by prescription of your treating doctor as this medicine is not over the counter.

Keep on applying hot packs.

Once pain is relieved nausea will also cured.

Avoid weightlifting, laptop usage as much as you can till pain is relieved.

I hope it helps.

My 10 yr. old daughter has a T5 compression fracture caused by a lesion of unknown origin. Two biopsies were performed. The first was unsuccessful so the Dr. offered to tx her as if it were Langerhans cell histiocytosis which was the only diagnosis that matched her x-ray according to him; low dose chemo/steroids. We opted for a second biopsy which revealed a inactive infection of unknown origin. She is currently on 500 mg bid of Amox-Clav for 6 weeks and is in a brace. After 2 weeks, of antibiotics and about a month in the brace, she is still waking up in the middle of the night with pain that starts out as a tingling radiating pain that wraps around from her back to her chest and then becomes a stabbing pain. She states her level of pain is about an 8. She has a difficulty time breathing at times, and her sternum seems to be protruding even more. We have been dealing with this since late October 2013. I am confused as to why she is receiving antibiotics for an inactive infection and am wondering what this infection could ve been caused by.
