Hello, for about month and half my left shoulder as been hurting and aching. Now for the last 2 weeks the aching has migrated down to my elbow and forarm and wrist and hand. Also my palm has been twiching as well? Everytime i grab or pick something up it twiches and goes away...and my left palm is swollen compared to my right palm? I have now weakness or stiffness in my hand, but i am worried......can you give me some advice? Thanks
Without asking you questions and examining you I cannot make a diagnosis. I would recommend discussing this with your primary care doctor, and perhaps seeing a neurologist. This could represent a problem in your neck, such as pinched nerves, and could be evaluated with a MRI of the neck. Your examination would help to differentiate other possibilities. Good luck.
