Pain in arm pit, shoulder blade, chest pain. Right hand swollen, bluish purple. Possible cause?

I have been experiencing pain in my right arm pit , shoulder blade , shoulder and arm as well the pain seems to radiate into my chest when I move my arm in a certain position . I have had problems prior with pinched nerves in my neck due to degeneration and herniated discs so I thought this was perhaps the cause however this morning I woke up and my right arm and hand is now swollen and bluish purple.. I have never experienced this before . Is this something serious?

Thanks for writing to hcm.
I seriously think you may have compromised blood supply causing that colour change.
You have to consult your physician soon and get your arm tested. Doppler study to look for blood supply might be needed.
