Upper back pain and tenderness and stinging under the armpit and along the back of the arm.

Posted by sherrie6502


  About 6 months ago my husband started having stabbing pains in his upper back and below the shoulder blade. The pain would pass and didn't occur all the time. As time has went by he has developed chronic pain in the this area and a stinging, burning pain and tenderness in the back of his arm and in the armpit. We have been to an Orthopedic specialist, a Neurosurgeon and a Pain Management doctor and still have no diagnosis to this problem. Does anyone have any idea what this might be? We also have no insurance and my husband recently lost his job when he had used up all of his vacation time, sick time and comp time due to Doctor's appts. and pain so severe he just could not go to work. Please we need help.
