Hello I'm Dr Chip

Does it also hurt to move that shoulder and that wrist?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Not really, but the physical therapist had me do some stretches and there's pain from my left shoulder. I had and MRI, X ray, EMG done and they can't find anything wrong with me. I am going crazy. So I have tingling sensation coming from my left shoulder down to my elbow. Also, I have burning like pain on my left shoulder and elbow when I bend it or when I lean on it. But I also have aching pain on both my elbows and wrists. What is wrong with me? I'm hurting every day!

By the way, this all started back in February of this year. It started with minor discomfort on my neck and it progressed to what I'm going through now

You need MRI's of the shoulder, elbow and wrist

You could have bursitis in the shoulder and elbow or tendonitis of the elbow and wrist and that would detect all of that

Cortisone injections could help with this
