Pinched or irritated nerve in shoulder

Shoulder Pain
I've got either a pinched nerve in my shoulder, or an irritated one. This is the first day I've been able to use my right arm in awhile, and even then I haven't been able to use it much. That means this won't be a long entry, as I'm right handed and having to type with only my left hand. The pain is especially bad when I move my fingers, or move my arm away from my body. The pain comes shooting down from the top of my shoulder where my bra strap would be, to the end of my fingertips. It's a sharp, burning, shooting pain, so that made me suspect that it may be a pinched or irritated nerve. DH, my knight in shining  armor, surprised me with another TENS unit. I'll put pictures of that up sometime soon. I saw my rheumy last week and the appointment went well. I will also fill you in on that as soon as I can.
