Sometimes I get a sudden pain intense pain in my shoulder blade area. It feels like a really bad muscle cramp and my hands go tingly and numb. It just randomly seems to happen and then goes away. Does anyone know what that is?
This may or may not be related to your childhood heart surgery and the scar. It may be a pinched nerve that can be corrected with a chiropractic adjustment, or it could be a number of other medical conditions. If it's still bothering you and has gone on for some time, I recommend consulting with your physician to identify the cause and any appropriate referrals for treatment.
