Numbness on scalp and right shoulder, shoulder injury. Suggestions?

Hi, I woke p with the top and a little bit of my surrounding head skin numb, this has never happened before, but I know it s not how I slept. I had an episode where I woke up with a patch of skin over my right shoulder numb which lasted for 6 weeks. I associated that with a bad fall I had snowboarding and I did hurt my shoulder. But this is very strange, any suggestions?

Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
It can be damage of nerves in shoulder are or compression of nerves in neck area which is called thoracic outlet snydrome.YOu should do x ray and ultrasound check to find is there any particular cause. Secondly it can be any kind of neuropathia and if nothing is found on tests, then nerve biopsy may be necessary
Wish you good health. Regards
