Weakness in shoulder, feeling dead, painful. History of shoulder injury. Anything to do?

Hi, I hurt my shoulder in the past (popped my bursa) and lately it has been feeling weak and I have been getting a dead arm sort of feel to it and it is all over my arm starting in my shoulder going down to my fingertips and it is very painful all the time. I am going on a flight in 2 days and I was wondering if there was anything to do so that this pain in my arm will go away?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain and the nub feeling that you are having is likely to be related to a nerve injury or nerve root compression. Investigations like MRI scan will help.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
