I'm having pain in my upper arm - between my shoulder and elbow - sometimes is goes down into my hand. About 2 weeks ago had a horrible pain in my shoulder, like someone was sticking a two-pronged fork into the front of my shoulder. Now I'm having this strange pain in my arm - like a swollen feeling and like the muscle is sore. I've had similar pain several months ago and I guess it just went away. Went to the doctor at that time and he gave me a prescription for an anti-inflammatory med. No x-ray or anything. Now I'm wondering if I need an x-ray or something to see what's going on in there. It wakes me up some nights. I've had back and neck problems for years, so could this just be a pinched nerve? Went to the chiropractor last week - no relief. Going again tomorrow and hoping for some relief this time. There's also some pain in my upper back and chest - which I know can be from muscle tension/spasms. Any ideas or suggestions would be helpful!! Or if you have a similar experience please share...
