Go to a chiro and see if you have a pinched nerve.  They can tell by thermal imaging.  Kind of sounds like a pinched nerve. You could also call and ask a advise nurse.

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
What you have is probably Scalene Myofascial Pain Syndrome. When scalene muscle is the cause of pain, the pain is referred to (either all or a combination of) chest, inner lining of scapula (shoulder bone), shoulder, posterior and lateral sides of the arm right up to the thumb and index finger. When this muscle shortens, this can press on brachial plexus (bundle of nerves and blood vessels in the armpit) and the subclavian artery and can compress or irritate these structures and cause symptoms such as abnormal sensation, cold extremity, spasms of pain, and lymphedema (swelling of lymph channels causing swelling of arm or leg) in the involved extremity. Treatment is by physiotherapy that involves indentifying the trigger points, and massaging them, and other exercises to relieve the muscle tension.
Other than this it can be due to pinched nerves. Paresthesias or abnormal sensations like tingling or numbness also can be due to diabetes, thyroid disorders, Lyme's or lupus should also be ruled out.
Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral.
Take care!
