if numbness or burning/ sharp pain is coming down in the whole upper limb, nerve may be compressed at the neck region, clinical exam is required to confirm pain origin from neck, shoulder or nerve entrapment anywhere in whole upper limb. Accordingly investigations will be required to confirm cause like MRI OR NERVE CONDUCTION TESTS
