Shoulder & Arm Pain

I've had pain in my right shoulder blade and arm for the last 4 months now.  I've had no accident within that time scale (had a nasty Horseriding accident 3 years ago which contributed to other problems on my right hand side).  The pain starts under my right shoulderblade (which is constant) and then through out the day I get a pain down my right arm at the back towards the elbow and sometimes even into the wrist and fingers.  i have no numbness but a tingling sensation instead, almost like when you hit your funny-bone!  It's worse when Im sat which is a real problem for me as i sit at a desk for most of the day.  I get a funny sensation every so often under my arm pit and towards my right breast of a twiching nerve which i've never had before.  I've been to a Chiropractor, Accupuncturist, taken antiflamitory's, pain killers none of which are working.  The only relief I get is if I stand near a doorway and rub my shoulder blade across the corner (almost like a deep massage).  It's painful, but in a good way if that makes sense!  I have no pain when I've been standing or even lying down, just when I've been sitting for more than 10 minutes.  Does anyone know what the problem could be or have had similar symptoms.  I keep thinking it may be a trapped nerve, but after 4 months......I'm not really sure what to do about it.  The door thing offers slight relief, but I need something that doesn't entail me looking like a bear rubbing itself on a tree!!
