Patient :I am trying to figure out if I have a pinched nerve or if it is just muscle pain and if going to a doctor will help?
Symptoms: Pain in upper right shoulder/neck that sometimes follows down my right arm and along rigth shoulder blade.
Muscles nearby feel tight when tuning head to the left, but burn/sting when turning head to the right.
Sitting up is better than laying down usually, but most comfortable when right arm is extended up over head.
