Pain in shoulder joint, runs down arm. Numbness in fingers and arm. Swelling in upper back. What is it?

Hello, I ve had what I thought was a frozen shoulder for a few weeks. However, I only felt pain now and again, although it was really intense when I did have it. The pain seems like it is based in my shoulder joint but alos runs down my arm . I am also starting to get a numbness in my fingers and arm that comes and goes. My shoulders are feeling tighter by the day. Yesterday, I noticed a swelling on my upper back between my shoulder blade and spine . It is about 3 inches wide and maybe 1 inch in depth. I don t know how long it has been there, but my friends say that yo can see it through my clothes today. It isn t painful in or around the swelling, but feels heavy, if that makes any sense? what do you think it could be?

Welcome at HCM.
I have read your question completely.

It Swelling on back is not generally associated with frozen shoulder.

There should be some other reason like infection,insect bite or allergy.

You should consult to your GP for this & should take an anti inflammatory medicines like aleeve for this.

Hope this will help you.

With best wishes.
