Pain around left shoulder blade mostly while sitting without back support. Treatment?

Few months ago I had pain around my left shoulder blade and later on I felt like an electric shock going from my upper arm to the tip of my left fingers. I usually feel this sensation when I sit without back support, when I sit on the toilet and I turn on my right lying on bed. I also feel this when I turn my head to the left touching my shoulder.

Welcome at HCM.

I have read complete details of your question.

It looks that you are having pain from neck to shoulder or upper limb area.There are various reasons for this type of pain-

-Compression of nerves supplying to upper limb by prolapsed disc.

-Enlarged bone parts like in cervical spondylosis.

-Impingement syndrome shoulder

-Adhesive capsulitis

-Presence of cervical rib in thorax.

Looking at all this i will advice you following-

-Get a x ray of the concerned part & of the spine.

-Avoid straneous action.

-Do warm fomentation over the shoulder.

-Take a good analgesic like advil or aleeve.

-Take some neurotropic vitamin like vitamin B1,2,6.

Hope this all will help you.

With best wishes.

Thanks for using Health Care Magic Forum,

Did you suffer from chest pain if so take an ECG to monitor your heart status
if no chest pain You are more like to suffer from neuritis .
Do not panic , Common cause of neuritis is

Vitamin Deficiency

If trauma occured in past few days there is no such worry as it recover in few weeks time.
Take an X-ray to rule out bone disorder
I advice you to take medication for 3months to prevent weakness due to neuritis
tab.Neurobion forte once daily for 3months
Tab.Cefixime 400 twice daily for 1week
Ask us if symptom persist. Wishing you speedy recovery

I Hope I Provided Useful Information. Do ask Furthur Questions to help You get well soon.
