I had an on the job shoulder injury in May 2009 and have saw 2 different doctors and was recently diagnosed with Right Shoulder Impingement Syndrome. At both of these visits I explained to the doctors that there is numbness and tingling that extends from the back of my shoulder down to the middle, fourth and pinky fingers of my right hand. The pain is the worst at night and keeps me awake. I cannot sleep on that side and heaven forbid that I do any types of repetitive motions above my head. Is anyone else who has this diagnosis suffering with any of these problems? If so your comments would be greatly appreciated.

Lreece,:(
