Customer Question

I have had a strange pain in the skin from my shoulder blade on my right side to the front of my breast and it runs sort of like may be a nerve route?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

I have noticed it for about 10 days. I keep looking to see if I have a rash but I do not have one.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have coronary heart disease, Lichen Sclerous, I am overweight

Hello I'm Dr Chip

Does it hurt to move the shoulder?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No it does not feel like a muscle pull or a shoulder problem. I don't know if pain is the right word. Its more like a burn or tingle feeling. I was thinking maybe it could be the beginning of Shingles or something nerve related. My breast is sore.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
