My left clavicle and shoulder have been numb for 6 days but nothing hurts. I haven't had any injuries and I haven't been doing repetitive movements. About 10yrs ago my entire left arm was tingling for about a week but with about 6 visits to a chiropractor, it stopped. I have a very slight case of scoliosis with the curvature being below my shoulder blades.
You almost answered your own question. Scoliosis puts pressure on your spinal nerves that doesn't have to cause pain, but pain, tingling and numbness, called neuropathy, can occur. You had the tingling long ago and your chiropractor was able to shift your spine, nerves and connective tissue so that your symptoms went away. Now it's 10 years later and you have numbness... still a neuropathy caused, no doubt, by the scoliosis. By the age of 30 it's not unusual for people to have spinal discs out of place and other problems that come with wear and tear without pain. It has to have happened before the age of 30. That's a second source of numbness. My sister at age 47 just found out she has slight scoliosis. She'd been having pain for years. No one would've guessed about the scoliosis.
