3. Neck Pain

Occasionally, a slipped disc can compress a nerve in the neck, which causes pain in the neck and between the shoulder blades. It is common for the pain to radiate down through the arm to the hands or fingers. Certain neck movements and postures can place more pressure on the nerve, worsening the pain. Depending on the degree of compression, the pain may feel either dull or sharp.
