Cervical MRI shows a pinched nerve in my neck which has been causing severe shoulder pain which than results in muscle spasms from my shoulder blade spine area around to under collarbone, and down to elbow. Worse pain than when I had pinched nerve in lower lumbar area which was fixed with multiple injections. So far Ive had 4 trigger point injections in shoulder joint. For my back I was prescribed Soma than Robaxin along with 5mg of Oxycodone. Would this be a good choice for the shoulder pain? I don't like taking something that I have not taken before, and I had good results with the Soma/Robaxin and Oxycodone, If not I would appreciate recommendations on meds. Thanks to anyone who tries to provide me with assistance.
Looking for a good combo of meds for chronic shoulder pain?

Also in the morning I have tingling sensation 'pins and needles feeling' down the length of my arm, this lasts for sometimes 90 minutes till it goes away. Nothing that I seem to do speeds up the cessation of this symptom.
Blue; Yes I see no reason that the medications you have had before would not help now. But really comes down to the doctor you should get in and see the doctor and get something to get you some relief. Off hand I was thinking Gabapentin which works on pain when the nerves are involved. You might want to talk to the doctor about that one. hope you get to feeling better soon. Chuck1957
