My Father just turned 50yrs old. and is experiencing strange muscle pain in his left fore arms . He explains it originates from a swelling on the centre top of his spine(positioned behind neck) .the swelling behind on his spine has eased but still very sensitive to touch and painful. he is able to walk and move around . He is average height and average built , no fat just mascular weighs about 190 pounds, never did drugs or alcohol in his life, Although Very Active .He just took some X-rays and a doctor in Ghana(Africa) suggesting it might be his left Scalupa(shoulder blade wearing out.
Currently i am a govt. contractor overseas in Iraq and before He flies back home to the U.S for any medical attention i really want to know what is going on and if it can be taken care of with medication first. His forearms feels funny and painful when he lay down, causing him to sit up to sleep. and anytime he goes through any emotional stress it causes his spine to swell some more .
Please Any suggestion or advice will be helpful and greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
