Pain in shoulder
Good day For more than a week I have this pain in my right shoulder, now my index finger went dead, pins and needles, my arm pains. I work 12hours a day infront of cameras. Using keybad and mouse. I cant stand the pain anymore. This is influncing my work hours. I drink painkillers but that does not help, use creams for pain it does not work. Please tell me what I can do.

The pins and needles imply a nerve compression, but this is very unusual from the shoulder.
You probably have a rotator cuff syndrome and need a cortisone injection into the shoulder.
You should consult a rheumatologist or neurologist to exclude pathology in the neck causing your symptoms.
Swimming might help as well.
