neck

For the past one year, i have been taken to the ER a couple of times where i was treated for pinched nerve, neck pain, muscle strain, sprained neck and back and muscle spasm. The pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> is getting worse. Sometimes the pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> shoot down my arm and my arm swells up. There will be tingling, numbness, weakness. Could someone please tell me what is going on. Before the injury, i was not having any pain but now, i cannot go a day without pain Please help.
My PT thinks my shoulder is impinged and that I have cubital tunnel in my elbow. I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>, mostly on the sides. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> cracks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> creaks when I turn it. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> hurts on the front by my armpit, and the back just below my right shoulder blade. My shoulder pops and cracks when I move it up, and I have difficulty pushing in or out with my arm. My shoulder often feels stiff, like I need to crack it, and I try not to. It hurts to lift my arm over my head, or to lift heavy things.
Her symptoms started out as back pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>. Her back started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g</span> 2 weeks after the pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> started. She was given muscle relaxers and an anti-inflammatory. She then started going to a Chiropractor. She could feel her neck tightening every time she was there because she was nervous. After the adjustments the tingling went from her upper back to all over her back and neck and she was even feeling tingling in the back of her head.
Before, I would experience excruciating <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> that would shoot pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> down my right arm to my right thumb <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> forefinger. After the surgery, I had numbness and a burning sensation in my right thumb and thumb pad and my right fore finger. My doctor said if by a year I didn't get the feeling back I would never get it back at all. Recently, since this past Sunday, I have been experiencing numbness and tingling down my LEFT arm only with less pain as it was with the right.
My problem started with Upper Back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>. I felt pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> in my spine that moved to my left shoulder blade. I also had stiffness and aching. My hands felt stiff and numb about 2 weeks after the pain started. I went to a doctor and they took x-rays and said that 2 of my Vertebrae were narrower then the others in my neck and may be pressing on my nerves and gave me muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory. instead of taking the medicine, I decided to go to a Chiropractor.
i woke one morning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> had no feeling when using the bathroom, a slight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g</span> in my lower right leg, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> some sort of spasming going on in my left leg. i thought nothing of it because all of the symptoms basically went away. around 2 hours later my right leg went numb. i went to the emergency room. i was diagnosed with a "bone spur" on c5/c6 and sent home w/ meds.
Originally i had been going for a issue with my rotary cuff, i had hurt my shoudler at work and i have been doing aqua therapy, plus the physio, they sent me to a specialist to see what else can be done, because a couple months after my injury i ended up having some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> blade, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> then up my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, not to mention the sharp pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> i have been getting there.
Repeating sentences and getting lost in my hometown. Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> + <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> blades = 'cervical arthritis' C-4 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> C-5 (I think) Started with tingling sensation from one arm, across back + blades, then down other arm. Now tingling and numbness in left arm goes down to new area (left hand and 3 fingers for the last 3 days) Hands originally uninvolved. Should I be concerned about new hand involvement or is this part of silent stroke? Allergic reaction to gabapentin.
Im the same as above, `i only get this when im lying in bed asleep and then i wake up in real pain, my shoulder blade hurts causing the pain to get worse on my shoulder which, causes numbness, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g</span>, horrific pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>, arm is limited <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> i seriously dont know what it is or how to get rid.
Nociceptive pain arises as a result of direct stimulation of nerve endings within the structure that is also the source of pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>. Axial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> is perceived as dull <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> aching, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> is often accompanied by referred pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> (referred pain is perceived in a region other than the pathological source of pain).
Last week i woke up with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> numbness in my right arm. It stemmed from my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> where i had an achiness. The tingling is subsiding now, but the arm still feels a bit weak and hurts at the shoulder blade. The day before i felt this, i was doing yoga so i'm thinking that perhaps i may have strained myself. Its only on one side of my body (just the right arm) so i dont think its MS. (wouldnt it be in both sides and in the legs also if this was a possibility?
I did some searching online at views of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>. I noticed that the SCM is the muscle track where the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g</span>, pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> numbness is. I don't know if this will help the doctor when I speak with him. But at least I know its kind of centralized. It seems it would be more nervous system then Muscle but maybe it was based on the muscle. At first I had thought maybe it was Shingles, but it has been 6 days and I haven't seen a rash yet, so I would rule that out.
I had started lifting weights about 5 months ago then numbness and tingling in left arm started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span>, most of the pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> is gone but still have numbness in left arm. Have stopped weight lifting and started physical therapy just hoping for numbness to go away. Is this a pinched nerve and what should I do for numbness to go away?
For five weeks I have been experiencing numbness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g</span>. The numbness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g</span> started in lower arms and legs and has progressively spread to entire arms and legs. Also I feel tingling on the top of my head and sometimes the sides of my face. A couple of days ago the left side of my face including left nostril went numb for a few minutes like I was getting a cavity filled. This happed twice in the same day. When I sneeze I feel tingling all over.
My right side is worst with numbness, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> sometimes pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> from my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> blade down to my fingers. (very annoying) Also these symptoms run down my legs to my feet. Scale from 1:10 on pain w/numbness is about an 8 most of the time. When I sit my legs get numb sometimes. It all gets worst at night. the back of my neck hurts and into the shoulders again. I take plaquenil and after my ER visit this past friday they put me on Celebrex which I took 6 years ago.
For the past month, I am experiencing severe numbness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> in my 3rd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> 4th fingers during the night on both sides, but worse in my right hand. It is painful enough to wake me and hurts plenty when the numbness --> tingling. I sleep on my sides and have for years without problems. I have been dealing with a shoulder injury (slipped and fell on some ice last winter), but it did not lead me to seek a medical evaluation.
Hello I had a neck fusion at c5/c6 about 3 years ago and now I have neck pain, shoulder to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>shoulder</span> pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> through my left arm, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> some numbness on two small left fingers and some headache.

I have neck pain just by sitting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> numbness in my right arm. Anyways, I found this book on how to treat your back and neck by Robin McKenzie. It gives you exercises you can do. I started doing them my condition improved a lot. I still have problems but getting better.
It was quite relaxing and calming and 100% pain free. Lately, I have been having some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> also <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>t<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>gl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> numbness in my right outer forearm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span> right outer calf. I hear some clicking sounds when I move my neck side to side as well. I am going to get an X ray this week but I know what they are going to tell me :0( I am pretty sure I have some disc degeneration up there too. My brother had neck and shoulder pain so bad he could not sit down or turn his head.
