Why do I have pain and numbness on my back in the left shoulder/armpit region?

I have pain an numbness in my left shoulder on my back. The pain sometimes goes down my arm/armpit. I think my left shoulder on my back is also much more numb than my right shoulder. Why is this and what can be done about it?
