Prolonged wear of tightly wrapped bandages, dangerous?

I am currently experiencing severe pain in my right shoulder and upper arm. I think it maybe brachial neuritis.
But i found that if i wrap a tight bandage around my shoulder and arm the pain lessens considerably, i am thinking of it keeping it on but i'm not sure if it's safe to do so. I find that after some minutes my arm and hand become numb and swollen (due to no flow of blood?).

So my question is, is prolonged wear of a tightly wrapped bandage dangerous?
