Dear Zetty,

with pain in your shoulder there are many causes. if you look at our website www.shoulderinstitute.co.za and at "Shoulder Pain" you will find all the causes there and you may be able to match your symptoms with your age etc.

Pins and needles in the arms and hands are usually due to nerve compression in tne neck. you may need to be seen by a doctor to make the diagnosis and suggest further treatment as necessary

Regards,
Dr Joe de Beer
