What causes shoulder pain?

Hi, I'm a 34 yr old female suffering from a low back pain for several years and the MRI taken at the inception indicated a bulging disc at L4-5. However since of late I have developed a severe shoulder pain on my left side which radiates down my arm. Further I'm experiencing pain towards the left ribs as well. Kindly advice .

Hello,
Thank you for using Healthcaremagic.
I read your question and understood your concern.
First you should rule out heart problems with ECG and cardiologist consult.
After you clear that you need to see the neurologist for the cervical spine evaluation with xray and MRI as it may be due to neck nerve impingement ( cervical disc )
I wish you quick recovery.
