Suggest treatment options for shoulder pain

I have had some shoulder pain that was very sudden. I did not work out or do any strenuous activities lately but i have this pain. It started in a small area on my shoulder blade, but has since spread to a larger portion of my shoulder blade as well as my upper arm, like under the armpit. The skin is sensitive to the touch, like a burning sensation.

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have intermittent tingling and numbness at tip of nose . Well the symptoms you mention in query can occur due to may reasons like brachial plexus injury , bursitis , cervical radiculopathy , dislocated shoulder , heart attack , impingement of nerve , sprains and strains . I would suggest you to consult orthopedic surgeon for proper examination . Doctor may order CT scan , MRI or x-ray to confirm the diagnosis . Doctor may recommend physical therapy , particular stretching exercises and prescribe muscle relaxant along with anti inflammatory . For now apply warm compresses to shoulder and give your shoulder proper rest .

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
