Our expert says:
from your description it sounds as if the pain in your shoulder and arm might be due to a nerve compression either in the neck or the "thoracic outlet". see our website www.shoulderinstitute.co.za and look under "Thoracic outlet syndrome". To give you a more specific answer to your question one would have to examine you and you should see an orthopedic surgeon in your area
