What Could Cause Left Shoulder Numbness?

Answer

There are many conditions that can cause left shoulder numbness. Herniated disk is one reason. This condition is caused when all or part of a disk in the spine is forced through a weakened part of the disk which causes pressure on nerves that border it. Other causes of shoulder numbness are thoracic outlet syndrome, diabetic neuropathy and rotator cuff injuries.
