Symptoms increasing, diversifying. Is this nerve damage?

About four and a half weeks ago, I developed what felt like a muscle cramp in my right shoulder. I didn't worry about this at first as I have had multiple minor injuries over the years - sprains, muscle pulls, etc.

The problem I have is that, far from following the usual pattern of decreasing discomfort over a few days followed by recovery, my shoulder has become so painful I can't sleep most nights and the pain is now creeping down my right arm and seems to be focussing on pressure point areas. I cannot use my right hand for anything much at all (this typing is a slow and laborious left handed process) including texting, etc on my phone. I am unable to sit for more than a few minutes at a time, I have stabbing pains at random from my neck to my hips and my right wrist and even more worrying, over the past two days I have just started getting stabbing hot needles into my skull and brain if I orgasm.

I have been to the dr (although he doesn't know about the most recent development yet) and had xrays. I'm off for a CT scan on my neck today. So far my dr's official opinion is "well, that's pretty weird" - and he IS a good one, he just hasn't figured it out yet.

Has anyone experienced anything like this? I've never heard of anything remotely resembling what's happening to me and it's wreaking havoc with my university studies - if you can't sit and can't type, it's kind of hard to get a degree.

Any helpful suggestions will be gratefully read.
