Pain seems to be originating from right scapula but it primarily is along right arm with tingling in hand and fingers!! Haven't fell or had any injuries to arm or hand

It s sounds as though you may have some nerve inpingment does the pain radiate over the right arm or under the arm. In other words is it running down the outer side of the
humerus or inside, most likely you have a pinched a nerve in the area of the upper humerus and its radiating all the way down into your fingers. If it keeps up you need to see your
doctor. He can run a EMG test and check for nerve conduction. Let me know what happens. You can be asleep and twist a nerve of the arm and it will be numb in that site for
awhile and the it will start to move down.

Good Luck

About 3 weeks off and on, comes and goes through out the day and usually wakes me up during the night.

Hey bt
You don't remember any type of weight lifting, any sports of any kind, like i said you may have had it happen when you were asleep. If it last more than a week and keeps bothering you, you need too see your doctor.

Hello, Kazbar.

Please look in the upper right hand corner of these posts to see that they were done 3 years ago. If you click in the user name greg8846 you will see that he has not been back for many years.
He will probably not reply to your post.

Just FYI.
