Hello. Thank you for posting.

Cervical radiculopathy, commonly called a "pinched nerve" occurs when a nerve in the neck is compressed or irritated where it branches away from the spinal cord. This may cause pain that radiates into the shoulder, as well as muscle weakness and numbness that travels down the arm and into the hand. This might be one possibility. We cannot know. See a doctor if it persists for proper diagnosis.
