Hi I am 38 years old and smoked on and off over the years. About two years ago I started feeling numbness in my little finger when smoking in the morning. I also run and on this occasion I over exerted myself and felt something burst in my right shoulder. The pain went away eventually but everytime I smoked I would get a shooting pain which would go away as soon as it came. Unfortunately over the last year the pain has built up, affecting my right arm and fingers with slight numbness. The pain in my shoulder is a dull one with shooting pains down my back, side and sometimes in my right breast. I also feel a sensation in my neck and throat like I have a lump there or food is stuck there. The base of my tongue is also numb at times. Ivegiven up smoking now. Has anyone experienced similar symptoms. Thanks
