These pains may be referred from a tendonitis of the shoulder or may indicate a pinched nerve in the neck or shoulder area. The jabbing,sharp nature of the discomfort suggests nerve pain,however. An orthopedic specialist is well qualified to evaluate and recommend any appropriate tests and treatment.
