What causes sharp chest and shoulder pain?

Hi,

I have been experiencing (at least 4x a week for the past 3 months) pain in my right upper chest, under my right shoulder blade and radiating down my right arm.

The chest pain is usually a stabbing/sharp pain. The shoulder pain feels like a knot with pressure and is achy all the time. My right arm has an achy feeling all the way down to my hand.

I do NOT have my gallbladder anymore.

Any ideas?

Hello dear

Warm welcome to Healthcaremagic.com
I have evaluated your query in details .

* This seems in relation with some sort of nerve compression at proximal
level either at thoracic outlet or cervical spine level .
* Needs relevant MRI evaluation after thorough clinical examination .

Hope this will help to clear your doubt .
Wishing you fine recovery .

Regards .
