please help. it started last week as a pain between the shoulder blade and the spine. then it spread to generally all around the shoulder blade, shoulder joint, and then on down the back of the arm. by day three or four, the muscles around the elbow are also involved, cramping and spasams. then the fingers grew numb, primarily the index finger, also the top of the forearm. ibuprofin cuts the edge off the pain but it does not go away. the more i rest the shoulder the more the shoulder hurts. it has now been two weeks and no sign of relief. a prescription of diazapam only made me sleepy. i am in africa and have limited access to specialized medicine. please help.
