I've been on here for a while, mostly because of lumbar issues, however earlier this year I had a c-spine MRI because of some neck issues and it came back showing an osteophyte complex causing nerve impingement. I had an injection that had no effect and the pain management doc said that was all he could do. Fast forward to this week and I've started having a burning pain in the top of my left shoulder. I can't induce the pain by pushing on it, it just depends on the position of my neck and position of my arm. Now I'm "assuming" this new pain is from the neck issue, I already have shooting pains into my arms when my neck is in a certain position, my question is does anyone have the same pain. Again I haven't seen the doc for this and it's only an assumption that this pain is due to the impingement and that's why I'm asking if anyone experiences this. Also it is on top of the shoulder in a very small area, as if a hot nail is being stuck into my shoulder. Thanks for your help.
