Help would be appreciated greatly!

hi I'm new here and would really appreciate some help.

The past 4 weeks now I've had a pain in my neck going into my left shoulder into my shoulder blade and also the top of my arm.

It started off as if i had lay on it wrong during the night but yesterday I woke up and physically couldn't move my neck, when I move my shoulder I am in excruciating pain, I can't lift my left arm up very far either.

My doctor has gave me some stronger pain medication and told me it will go away on its own and to treat it with hot and cold compress which I've been doing for 4 weeks now with no relief.

I'm literally at breaking point with the pain, it's effecting my everyday life I'm only 27 and it's literally taking over. 

Any help would be great

    Agree with older then dirt, first is the pain constant or intermittent? Sharp or dull? Worsenon movement or at rest? Make a log and take that to to your MD

    Four weeks of severe pain where it's affecting your everyday life without any answers is too long.  Have you been back to your PCP or even been seen by a spine specialist?  Since we haven't heard from you in over a month you are doing much better.  That's a good sign.
