I am getting desperate. I can't seem to get anyone to help me with this problem. About a year ago, I started having severe pain and burning in my right shoulder blade. At the same time, I am having numbness and pain shooting down the back of my right arm (around near my armpit as well) and numbness in my pinky and ring finger. There is also pain under my right collar bone that seems to radiate from my shoulder. I have tried muscle relaxers, ibuprofin, physical therapy and while all of this helped somewhat for a short period of time the pain continues. It is now at around an 8 on a scale of 1-10. I am very active with two teenagers and am starting to be a real drag to them because I am always in so much pain. Does anyone have a clue what this is?
