Hi, Miaapa,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you might have cervical spondilitis or peri artheritis of shoulder.
Due to degenerative changes in cervical vertebrae,there is stretching of nerves passing through giving rise to irritation of nerves causes tingling,numbness,pain in the arm.
Go for X ray cervical region and if require of shoulder joint.
After reports go for the treatment accordingly.
Ok and bye.
