Numb/tingling sensation in between shoulder blades
I never felt this sensation until after my RNY, but it could have nothing at all to do with it. My B12 was in the 500's in June when I had my bloodwork, but I take 1000mcg every day...and 3-4 times per week I am taking 2000 mcg per day. I am not having unusal numbness anywhere else. This is just such a strange sensation that it is hard to explain....it's numb but it hurts at the same time.

If it isn't due to your low B12 levels, it could be from a spinal problem. I have herniated discs in my neck and get similar numbness and pain in my neck.

It could be a pinched nerve or even a torn rotator cuff. You were lying totally immobilized on an operating table for a long time. Your body is also adjusting to carrying you differently. See if you can pinpoint what you were doing for a few hours before this happenend. I bet there is a pattern.
