I'm currently going through the same thing. Apparently nerves that pass from the neck down through the arms and hands are getting 'mashed'  as they pass through the excessively tight shoulder muscles. I am massaging shoulders like crazy to try and get rid of the knots that have already formed, and hope that the relaxants I have just started will stop more spasms from occurring again, breaking the agonising pain and tension cycle I have been experiencing for the past three months, since straining my neck and shoulders :(
