It feels like I just have a knot right up underneath my left shoulder blade, no biggy, happens all the time. But then, yesterday, my left arm starting aching. It hurts when I breathe, yawn, cough...everything...even in my chest, from my back. Any idea what this could be? It is so bad, I break down in tears!!

It's not weird but very common. You have a facet lock causing pinced nerve. You should go to osteopathian or chiropractor, etc.

Why? It is just a suggestion, what else gan be given here but advices?
It is a tip to go to see a medical expert who can tell more. I may have added a word "may" or "might" there in the middle. I have to remember to use it next time...

You Are Correct
The words "You have" emplies that you that you know for sure the symtoms add up to this conclusion. We usually do use the words "could be, sounds like or could be possible. You ended you post very well.
Just have to keep in mind something I had to learn also. That wording could make the topic poster worry more and by saying "You have" is basically saying you know for sure this is what the problem is.
All in all, you advice could be on the right track.

Warm Thoughts,
Carrie

Allmost nothing is ever sure. Not even a diagnosis of a doctor after examination. That is why there is a thing called "a second opinion".

I have been in health care for 23 years. And part of that was mental health. You are righ when you say even doctors are not alway right. I myself had to go for a neuro second opinion for MS. I have been early retired out of work since April 6th 2006. And now have to go to court of Social Security Disablity being denied twice. Not fun. I loved my work. I worked in 5 doctors office as assistant to the doctor and have worked evey unit you can think of in the hospital. Nothing is new to me. There have been many times I have known what is wrong with a poster, but I could never say "You have". I must say " I would look into or it could possibily be". By saying "You have" that is in fact diagnosing. We are not allowed to say that a person has anything. Just an FYI.
Also, as I said, it is against board rules to disrespect a supporter or moderator on or off the board.

Upper Back Piain (between shoulders)
I have a burning or radiating pain in my upper back shoulders, it sometimes cause numbing and tingling in my fingers in the mornings. Almost two years ago I hurt my back in hot yoga, and ever since then I have been plagued with this on-and-off again pain. I stopped lifting weights within last three months at the gym, because it only seems to make it worse. I recently saw two chiropractors, which made it even more painful, now I am fearing surgery. Does anyone have any ideas as I have gone from heat to ice, which gives me momentary relief?
