I do have "shoulder blade" pain... I just saw my neuro a week ago and she explained that the pain and "weird" sensations I get are sensory pain from the signal issues caused by MS. I also have osteoarthritis so I thought it was related to that she explained that although some of my pain is arthritic a majority is sensory.

Left hand and arm weakness here too. Constantly dropping things. Very weak grip. Plus every kind of abnormal sensation in that hand: numbness, prickling pain, shooting pain, raw/abrasion type pain, achy, cold and wet sensation, itchiness, stiffness, vise-like grip feeling around my whole hand and my fingertips, sensation of always wearing a too tight glove. A tendency to want to curl that hand in a ball to relieve some of the icky feeling. Constant discomfort, day and night, 24/7. In my right hand, several of these same sensations, but very mild in comparison to the left.
I have a lot of pain in my shoulder blades and neck on a regular basis. I wake up that way and now dh brings me an icepack every morning when it's time for me to wake up and I will put it under my head for awhile. That helps a LOT.
Sometimes I get a feeling of pins and needles in my trapezius muscle - I've had that for years - but it always seems to be just when I've been typing a lot or doing a lot of dishes, so it may just be from tired muscles.
Occasionally I have an episode where my left hand feels so heavy I can barely lift it and it also feels weak at that time, but it usually goes away quickly so I havn't paid much attention to it.
I'm in "limbo" and have not been diagnosed with MS, but just thought I'd share my experience with you.
