Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I think that you should have this evaluated further starting with an x ray of the neck and then MRI of the neck if required.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

A disease of the neck spine or the discs in the neck spine can press on the nerves and can not only cause pain in the shoulder but also pins and needles sensation that you are mentioning.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

For symptomatic relief you will be given medications like pregabalin to treat the sensation that you are having.

Dr. Shahzad MD :
