hi there this is my first time to one of these, I am a mum of 2 aged 46 with stage four lung cancer. It appears it is now rapidly progressing to my spine but I don’t seem to be getting anything from doctors. 

Is it normal to get strangers sensations in my shoulder near the spine and feeling like something is pressing down on me, the shortec helps for a while but then comes back, I’m really frightened that this is happening too fast please can anyone help
