My right shoulder starting hurting about a week ago, thought I had pulled a muscle, but then the pain started spreading up to my neck and down the back of my arm and my front forearm. There is pressure along my ribcage as well. The pain and burning intensifies when I'm sitting but feels better when I stand or last down.
I agree with Nun... This is something for a hospital to see, and quickly. It's not something that a family Practitioner can help you with other than to take x-rays and order hospital tests. I suspect something is happening in your spine involving nerve impingement, and the fact that it's worsening quickly only tells you to expect it to stay on that trajectory. If you don't do it now, take it dead serious the moment you start to feel any numbness in the upper body. The last thing you want is for that to become permanent. I'm so sorry you're going through this! Please post and let us know how things turn out for you.

Could a muscle relaxer for my neck be the cause of pain in my arm? It's helped my neck but I'm sore?
