Symptoms:

1. Severe right shoulder/back pain mostly mornings; 7 to 8 on a scale of 1 to 10. Pain will decrease during the day some days; wake me up at night.
2. Upper right arm pain (deep)
3. Numbness right hand
4. Full range of movement with shoulder no add. pain same with neck (except a bit more pain when chin touches chest)

Have had these about a month and a half.

5. Weakness in knees / unsteadiness in knees

Just occuring

My GP sent me to ortho (shoulder pain) shoulder x-ray negative / c-spine x-ray, ortho saw some arthritis. GP said everyone gets that as they get older.

Scheduled to see Neuro on 7/16.

Background: 40yo, non-smoker, occasional drink (mostly weekends), a bit overweight (high +BMI).

Thanks, Brad
