Have pain deltoid to shoulder blade, numb shoulder to finger tip. Had accident, took massage therapy

For two weeks ive been in pain. Started in my right deltoid then moved into my shoulder blade. A week ago it moved to my left deltoid and its numb from shoulder to finger tips. Certain positions cause me to hit the ground in pain and im not a small or weak man. 6'1" 230 20% body fat and very active. The pain is unbearable most of the time even on a 800mg twice per day regimen. I was involved in a car accident one yr ago and saw a massage therapist for 10 months. Now after 2 months im in this position of constant pain. Help please. No insurance and out of money

Welcome at HCM.

I have read your question.

It looks from your details that you are having pain at your both shoulder region & had an accident one yr ago.

Looking at your details ,it looks that there can be some problem with your nerves supplying your shoulder area.The nerves can be compressed at neck region.This can be due to disc prolapse after accident which is compressing nerves supplyng to shoulder area.

You may evaluate it by having a MRI scan of cervical spine.

If it comes true then this can be treated by good analgesic ,exercises & physical therapy modalities.

At present you may have a mild analgesic like advil & should do warm fomentation for relief.

Hope this all will help you.

With best wishes.
