A 29-year-old female asked:
Strong ache in the shoulder,front & side of my upper right arm going to elbow, lasting over 2-3 weeks,now pins & needles to tips of fingers.what is it?

Neck: Pins and needles usually is the sign of a pinched nerve. The most common site would be in the lower part of your cervical spine. Could be from an irritated nerve, or possibly a bulging disc. It does not sound like a shoulder problem.
