My symptoms are as follows, I have pain in my neck located at C5 - C7 & T1. I have stiffness and pain in the left side of my neck with pain going down through my shoulder, under my arm pit, upper arm, and pain, numbness, burning sensations and tingling in my lower arm. Pain in left wrist with numbness in my 4th and 5th fingers and lower part of my hand extending back up my arm. i have a spot about as big as a hand on my back, located just to the right upper portion of my left shoulder. Symptoms began in the middle of the night as pain in my left arm and by noon that day my pain was so intense that I ended up in an emergency room. So far I have been diagnosed as having pericardia inflammation and high blood pressure. When that was ruled out, I was sent from the Cardiologist, to a bone specialist, who sent me to a neurologist, who sent me to my doctor who is sending me to have some physical therapy done. They have done stress tests, EKG, EEG ultrasounds, X-rays and MRI's and a few that I can't remember. All have came back negative. I still have chronic pain, stiffness, burning sensations etc... and have been unable to work for the last six weeks. Still no answer as to what is wrong.....
