Back, Shoulder, Arm Pain

I have pain in my upper back near the shoulder blade and the pain runs through my shoulder, down the back side of my arm, through the top side of my forearm and down to my hand. Sometimes my hand tingles or goes numb.  It is a constant pain and is affecting the left side of my back and arm. What do you think is going on? what can I do to make this pain go away?

It sounds like it could be a nerve problem, like a pinched nerve in the neck or upper back. You could start with xrays to look for bony overgrowths that could be impinging on nerves.
