Brief Answer: Could be due to rotator cuff syndrome. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. Pain in your shoulder joint could be due to rotator cuff syndrome. Having numbness in arm and fingers could be due to nerve compression- these two may or may not be related. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician nearby for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care
