What could be the cause of my shoulder and arm numbness?

They have been numb for a couple of days now and I don't remember injuring them.

Numbness in your shoulder and arm could be a sign of peripheral nerve compression. That is, either a tissue, muscle or bone is impinging on the nerve and causing the numb feeling. Are you diabetic by any chance? This condition might also be a factor in your case. See a doctor.
