Shingles or Trapped Nerve

4 days ago I woke up with pain in my shoulder which radiates down my arm all the way to my little finger. The pain is worse when sitting in my car or lying on my side in bed, but I can raise my arms above my head! My GP thinks it might be shingles so I wanted to know if anyone else has had shingles start in this way!?*

My skin isn't sore to touch, nor do I feel ill. I have made an appointment to see a private physio but I have to wait 3 days for their next available appointment.

Any advice would be gratefully received.

Thanks
