I have arthritis from neck to toe! recently I have been getting pain in the area of the middle of my shoulder blades (slightly to the left). Get some relief when I move about/head forward etc. I know my osteoarthritis is getting worse...just wondered...what nerves are now being affected. Thanks.

Extremely eHealthy
The nerves in your cervical spine could be affected. You should see a spine specialist, either an orthopedic surgeon that specializes in spines or a neurosurgeon that specializes in spines only.

Get an evaluation, diagnosis and treatment plan set up for youself.

Good luck

Fran...thanks. Had to pay for c-spine mri few years ago...'knew' it was spreading throughout body. Know I have serious probs now....thing is affording the exact/correct diagnosis. Why do we call ourselves 'human' when only those who can afford it...are allowed to live healthily? Most animals in the wild will look after there own....!! Thanks for your reply.

Get yourself diagnosed before the condition become extremely worse. And start exercising or include little physical activities in ur lifestyle to cut down the acute pain, however avoid any kind of activities, which add to the stress on joints. For example, high impact aerobics or jogging should only be done after seeking an advice of experts
