Customer: replied 10 years ago.
I have had nothing checked. I havents seen the doctor about this at all. I just had gone in to the doctor about 2 months ago for something else not pertaining to this and I was told I have a spot of arthritis on my shoulder blade. As far as anything else goes, no I haven't had anything checked.

In my opinion you need to be clinically examined.Along with that you need to go investigations including Blood Sugar,Thyroid Profile,Haemogram,X-ray Right Shoulder and Cervical.

These investigations are necessary to reach a pinpoint Diagnosis,
