[QUOTE=walus]I have a weird tingly sensation in my upper back near my shoulder. Sometimes it feels like a pinprick or slight electric shocks. I donít know if this is a skin condition or nerve condition or what its really associated with. It may be associated with sitting at my computer, however I do not know how to verify this. I noticed that the palm of my right hand does get significant pain if I use garden tools such as a rake for any length of time, but not while I am using the computer. I donít know if this hand pain is related. I did notice that the problem is more noticeable if I am sitting at the computer rather than when I am walking around or doing other things. I donít have the best posture, and when I swing my right arm around I can feel my shoulder cracking throughout the motion. This sensation is not present in my upper left back. If anyone has any ideas please let me know.[/QUOTE]

Could be related to a herniation of a disc in your neck... one of the Cervical Discs....My partner had a herniation at C5-6...and a bulge at C6-7....she had tingling in her upper back, down her right arm... sometimes left arm....also the pinprick or electric shock feeling... or stabbing feeling as she called it in her shoulder..... also had pain in her shoulder, arm... and hand and numbness in her ring finger and pinky finger on her right hand..... best suggestion is to go see if either your primary care physician can order an MRI or go see a Orthopedic doctor that specializes in the spine... or go see a Neurologist... they can all order a MRI for you.... thats about the only way you are going to find out if it is a herniation or something causing your pain....

You dont have to have pain along the spine where the herniation is either.... she didnt... the pain comes from the herniated disc compressing on a nerve in the spine....the longer it is compressed.. the more damage there will be...

My partner....had a Discectomy/Fusion back in February to fix the problem....

Good Luck to ya...
