Brief Answer:
A TIA to consider.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Sensitive changes simultaneously and in the same side in your hand and lip may indicate a transient ischemic stroke rather than compression of nerves due to your shoulder condition.

This needs to be confirmed or excluded by neurological examination and by imaging studies such brain MRI, Doppler ultrasound of your carotid arteries before to go to surgery.

Discuss with your Doctor about these issues.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.
