sore shoulder for about a week, also same arm tingling
Probably a pinched nerve in the shoulder, follow the advice below .
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Your symptoms seem to be related to cervical radiculopathy or a pinched nerve in the shoulder.
A physical exam and a nerve conduction study are needed to confirm the diagnosis.
I recommend using anti-inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen 400 mg three times a day.
I also recommend using an anti inflammatory cream such as Voltaren gel.
I also recommend physical therapy to strength the muscles around the shoulder.
If the symptoms continue I recommend consulting a neurologist for further evaluation and treatment.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
