I have had problems with my left shoulder blade/back area for over 6 months now. It started getting real bad about 3 months ago...I saw my PCP and she told me to suck it up that everyone has aches and pains and to get a hobby. Last week I started with minimal off and on tingling in my fingers...today it has been tingling non stop for over 2 hours now. Both the pain in my shoulder and the tingling get worse if I raise my arm...has anyone had this?
PLEASE someone tell me I'm not crazy....I just really need to hear that someone believes me that this pain IS real and is intense. I just cannot get any relief from the shoulder pain no matter what I do.

Tell your PCP you need a referral to an Orthopedist ASAP!! Then to PT!! Don't let your PCP treat that if thats thier attitude - an ortho doc specializes in this kind of stuff, and will help pinpoint the problem!!! Don't keep sucking it up, that's just wrong!!!! (Hope you feel better soon!!)
