left shoulder blade has had a stabbing pain, arm is numbing and left hand no feeling

Male, 53, heavy drinker and smoker. My brother’s left shoulder blade has had a stabbing pain for two weeks. Radiates down left arm, very painful getting worse every day. Has no insurance, has not been to a doctor in many years. Today his arm is numbing and left hand no feeling. Need to find some way to get him to a doctor because he will not go. Perhaps if I knew what it could be it would help get him there.
