Too! Weird. I have been having right shoulder pain some

Customer Question

Hi, my name is ***** *****! Weird. I have been having right shoulder pain for quite some time. I finally went to the doctor for it and they did an x-ray and an MRI which just showed some tendonosis but nothing to serious. About a week after the MRI - this last Friday, the intensity of the pain increased dramatically and I started having shooting pain across my chest, in to my neck and in my ear. I also could no longer move my arm. I went to the doctor immediately and they gave me a shot for pain and prescribed muscle relaxers and pain meds until I could see an orthopedic specialist.
JA: How long have you been dealing with the neck pain? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?
Customer: The nerve pain has since settled down now. My doctor ordered a neck x-ray which came back fine. The pain I'm now having is when my arm is at my side and not supported I feel a lot of pain at my collar bone region.
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: I have painful swelling in my collar bone region now. I also had a blood test a couple weeks back that showed elevated liver enzymes (ALT = 79 and AST = 52).
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

I'm glad you are going to see an orthopedic specialist since that should help sort out your problem.
