I have had scapular winging for over 8 months now which was apparently induced from intense overhead activity ( serving in tennis). Even after intensive physical therapy for 6 months, the winging has gotten worse and so has the pain. I have intense pain in my shoulder blade and along my neck, and a lot of stiffness in my mid back area. I also get lots of stabbing down my right arm ( the winged scapular is the right one) and numbness in my hands and sometimes get tingling in my hands. I get fatigued easily, especially doing overhead activities. I went to see a surgeon who said unless there is nerve damage there is nothing he could do. Does it sound like this could be long thoracic nerve palsy? Or paralysis of long thoracic nerve? I really would appreciate any answers or help as the pain is getting unbearable. Many thanks.
