Hi - I'm hoping someone can set my mind at rest.
On Tuesday I started to experience severe pain in my shoulder blade area. I put it down to a pulled muscle took some paracetemol and carried on. After a sleepless night, I went to work, and the pain was worse, so decided to got o the doctors and get it checked out. The doctor said I'd pulled a muscle, to keep up with the pain killers and it would go away.
I have full movement in my arm/shoulder, it doesn't hurt to move it - only when it's stationery. There is no stiffness just pain.
This morning, it's still as painful as ever, the muscles down my arm keep twitching (especially at my elbow) I've lost significant strength in my arm, and two of my finger ends are numb.
Is this normal or should I go back to the doctor? I don't want to waste their time.
