I have been having an aching pain that originates just to the right of my left shoulder blade (near c7 or t1), and migrates to my left exterior shoulder "cap", biceps, triceps and forearm. Massaging the muscles does no good, it's like the pain is bone deep. During a pain attack, it hurts to put my chin to my chest. Putting my arm in specific positions will cause immediate intense tingling/burning in my hand (palm and back of hand) and fingers (primarily first three fingers, slightly in ring and pinky).
An x-ray showed mild to moderate multilevel cervical disc degeneration (no word on which discs at present). But I really have no neck pain to speak of, and excellent flexibility. the pain is upper left back, shoulder and arm.
Do you think these symptoms are indicative of a cervical disc problem, or is it more likely that although I might have some degeneration in cervical discs, the pain is actually a thorasic (or other) issue?
