Question:

I was slammed in a metal cell like door at work (I work at a prison) My chest, neck, shoulders, back and abdomen were all hurting. Now after almost 4 weeks my left shoulder has sharp pain by my shoulder blade and goes down to my elbow, I also have tingling feelings in my hands,but I have full ROM but it hurts. My doctor said that I shouldn't be hurting anymore what could be causing the pain still?
