Brief Answer: Compression of nerve in cervical spine. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. According to your symptoms it looks like there is compression of nerve in cervical [neck area] spine. This leads to electrical pulses across your shoulder area. You may need to take x ray or MRI spine to see for severity of nerve compression. Some medication like methylcobalamine with muscle relaxant and analgesic will help, you can take them consulting your treating doctor. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care

I hoped it was merely that I need to go to the chiropractor, I thought I read it could be sign of heart or stroke and I am glad to hear you do not think it is either. but this cost me half a visit to my chiropractor to find out, but still cheaper than visit to regular doctor office.
