about 6 years ago I started to have some pain in the thumb of my left hand, then it progressed up my left arm, then I had a burning pain in the pad by my left thumb. Sometimes it feels as as if a pin is stabbing my thumb, other times it is just a severe pain. The last year or so I have had a lot of left shoulder pain. It hurts from my shoulder all the way down my arm into the thumb area of my left hand. Back in Oct. I had surgery for a pinched nerve in my neck, but I still am having a lot of pain. When I lift my arms over my head it I feel even more pain, apparently the pinched nerve wasn't my only problem. I did go for pain management for awhile but that didn't seem to help. What can I do?
