Scapula pain with tingling arm

About 7 weeks ago I woke up with a really sharp stabbing pain behind my left scapula.  At first I thought I slept on it wrong.  I took a bad fall down some stairs about 4 months ago, but did not have any pain after (besides a bruised tailbone) The pain starts at the left scapula and radiates up my spine to my neck and down my left side (shooting pain is only with certain movements).  My left arm from my interior shoulder to my elbow starts tingling with certain potions.  I went to the Chiropractor several times with no luck.  My PCP referred me to physical therapy.  I have gone about 7 times.  PT does heat/ultrasound/massage therapy with light stretching exercises.  I still have the pain.  I also suffer from occasional migraines that just began about 2 years ago.  I don’t feel like my doctor believes me that I am in pain.  

Does anyone know what this could be?

Just got a call from a spine and joint surgeon.  The MRI of my T-spine was normal.  The MRI of my C-spine was anything but normal.  I have a bulging disc in my C-6 C-7.  Now I need to figure out if I want to continue with physical therapy (not helping at all at this time) or go in for a very risky surgery.  I have to options for surgery.  I can do a Fusion (bone graphing bone from my hip) or this newer surgery that puts in an artificial disc.
