Cervical pain between two shoulderblades (3 inch below neck)


Can someone get cervical pain between shoulder-blades 3 inches below the neck. My pain starts at the right side close to the center of that area. I am confused if that can be because of stenosis. Have anyone experienced it as the starting pain or their main symptoms?

MRI shows C4-C7 severe steonosis. Pain in hand.


  • I have had that pain. I would suggest looking up "dermatomes" ( you can google) and you will be better able to connect your symptoms with your problem areas. Hope this helps.

  • Hi....yes i do have this....come to find out, it is due to my T-1 and T-2 region.....every case is different....so don't assume yours is the same....but talk to your dr that this is a new symptom.....best of luck.

    I have had a hard time surgeons to explain me the pain, They recommended me to do ACDF at C4-6. I asked whether the pain (three inches below the neck can be cervical.The answer was "I do not know.It can be.". I have asked to get an thoracic MRI. The response was there is a problem in Cervical lets fix it first. I wish I would knew that my thoracic area is clean before doing my ACDF
