I have had pain in my upper right arm for about 3 weeks now. Usually dull aching but sometimes shooting and sharp pain. Within the past week the pain has proceeded into my right shoulder the same way. I actually have several areas on my upper arm and shoulder which are sore to the touch now also. Now Saturday night I was awake all night since the pain has gone into the right side of my neck. This pain is even more severe going from moderate to severe if I attempt to extend or manipulate my arm certain ways. Today is Monday and I awake with some relief in the neck but now my forearm has become incredibly painful, very tender to move or even touch. It feels like it has been crushed. This is becoming too much and I believe I may need to visit the ER. It is quickly becoming intolerable. I had had no accident or trauma to any of the areas mentioned. What might this be?
