    Hi, I just wanted to ask, i have a stinging sensation at the top left mid shoulderblade/spine. I am worried it may be a bone spur, or a pinched nerve, my mom has spinal stenosis, so is it hereditary? Could it be stenosis? I am just woried bc i already have a list of medical conditions and i really dont want another one on my list i will have to worry about.

    You need to discuss this with your doctor.

    You should talk to your primary care doctor for an xray or MRI. Don't worry too much, it's easy to be afraid of what we've inherited, but only a doctor or neuro should give you the answers you're looking for.
