For last few years I am feeling numbness in my legs, feet, tingling in the my foot fingers, and numbness in hand. I do feel insomniac but i am keeping my daily routine life. I find it difficult to have medicines for a long time. My husband suggests I must improve on my diet and add some supplement to treat this ailment. I shall be thankful if some suggestions are given to improve my health.
For the last 6 months I am having numbness in both hands. The pain during the night makes me wake up with the feeling that the blanket is very heavy. I no longer have the strength to lower the handbrake of my car and a general weakness is starting to take over the upper body. I generaly have a very weak grip in the hands. Sometimes I have the feeling that my hands are cold when they're not. Last week I had a swollen hand. The problem is advancing very quickly.
I had been suffering from neck pain especially on the right side, pain on the shoulders , pain and numbness in the right hand, all these with varying intensities, some times less sometimes severe since 4 years. I have consulted ortho and neurologists, carried out blood tests, MRI scan, Xray of neck, nerve conduction test and thyroid test two year back and the result was normal. Doctor prescribed some steroids and painkillers for few months.
about a weeek ago I noticed a slight numbness in my left foot. The next day I could feel it in my left hand. This has been going on for the last week and seems to be a bit stronger when I'm at rest. If I'm up moving around I don't feel it. I have had a herniated disc at c5/6 for 30 yrs so I am thinking it could be coming from that. At the onset of the numb feelings I did have a stiff neck and some pain in the left shoulder. Do you think my disc could be the cause or could it be something else!

im being treated for bulging disc in my neck, and that causes numbness and pain that goes down my arm to my thumb then my fingers go numb, i suffered since august, i thought i had a stiff neck, the past 6 weeks every two weeks i go for shots in my neck and i guess in the disc, i dunno they put me in a twilight sleep, so it seems to b working for the pain but not the numbness, good luck tho
Hi. I would like to know of any suggestions to help relieve the pain/numbness in my left arm. Started in my left side of my neck to shoulder area ...then I feel the muscle contract and then my arm goes numb all the way to my finger tips...this happens all day and night long. It happened back in Dec - Feb ... it went away for a couple weeks and then i slept wrong causing my neck / shoulder to hurt again and then numbness is now back. I had my verves tested and all is perfectly fine.
The common causes for pain and numbness in the hand are carpal tunnel syndrome and a pinched nerve in the neck due to herniated disc or a bony spur. With carpal tunnel syndrome however, the first two fingers are affected, loss of grip strength etc. entrapment of the ulnar nerve at the wrist due to ganglion cyst, lipoma, etc is another possibility. Other causes of nerve compression are arthritis, alcoholism, diabetes, thyroid problems etc. thoracic outlet syndrome needs to be checked.
Extremely limited neck mobility. 4. Pain in left arm and hand increases as neck pain increases. 5. I still have headaches in the top of my head and since the beginning of this year they have been getting worse. 6. I have difficulty concentrating and memory problems. 7. I do not sleep well, because I cannot get my neck comfortable or because I disturb my sleep by moving to a position that bothers my neck. I am constantly fatigued. 8. My appetite is poor or non-existent. 9.
Now over the months I've had severe back neck leg pain, numbness that is in spots on my right arm. I can turn my head and my jaw and right side of my face goes numb and then starts stinging, and it feels like my right eye has fallen down. I stay weak feeling, constantly in pain, dizzy, and my bones and knees hurt, and muscle spasms and sometimes feel I have no control of my hands. I've had st scan, everything looked ok, I had a bone scan, again they found nothing.
Following a fusion procedure, there is an increased risk of degeneration of the adjacent discs which could produce similar symptoms (neck pain, shoulder pain, changes in sensation of the arm, weakness etc.) that you experienced preoperatively. The fact that your surgery did not relieve the bilateral arm pain and cramps you had prior to the fusion, could be due to permanent nerve damage that could not be repaired even with surgical intervention.
If my shoulder/neck pain is better (which it is slightly) yet I'm still weak in the arm and hand, with numbness and tingling, and slight leg sensations, will this still be indication for surgery? Basically, to look at me, I appear fine--not screaming in agony by no means. By my MRI report, would the surgery be a one level, or two? Should I wait until it gets worse? I feel like I'm not in "enough pain" to warrant surgery.
I have constant muscles spasms. The last few weeks I have had a pain in my neck (front part) and now my leg feels like jello. The symptoms come and go in episodes. I have had blood work done and nothing sticks out. B12 is ok. I have had two MRI's and they have come back saying that MS is not aparent. Although they have found a group of tiny lessions in the left frontal part of my head that are likely incidental.
However, one constant since onset has been hand pain, like electrical currents running through my left hand. Intensified in palm and forefinger 24/7, with intermittant pain and numbness in other fingers, except little finger, and pain on top of hand. I have a nodule at base of forefinger on palm side which feels like it's sitting on a nerve. Wrist pain comes and goes. Forearm throbs, elbow pain intermittant, but hurts when touched. Entire arm goes numb when lifted to the side.

For the past four evenings I have woken repeatedly with pain and numbness in my left hand and arm occasionally accompanied by slight swelling. As a rule, I sleep on my side due to sleep apnea (sleeping on my side seems to help prevent snoring and closure of the airway). Additionally, during the day my grip appears to be somewhat weaker than normal. I am 51, average to good health and muscle tone but slightly overweight.
Hi Ladies, I am a 28 year old female and have had smiliar symptoms for over a year now. I have had been to neurologist, optometrist, chiropractor, dentist, physical therapist etc. Doctors have done MRI'S, CT Scan, blood tests etc. and have found nothing. I have tried every migraine medication and even nerve blockers. No medication seems to give any relief. My nuerologist diagnosed me with cluster headaches and put me on oxygen therapy.
Since long time I feel sizzeling and pain in my left hand two small fingers and that pain goes right upto my neck. Sometimes during the night, I have pain in whole hand but most of the time it is only in two fingers. What could be the reason?
back pain since walking dog numbness in both hands in fingers worse in the middle of the night it wakes me up.I can only sleep on back and it still happends.
I don't really feel weakness or pain, although the last two days I have had some cramping in my hand. I'm wondering if perhaps I could be making some of this up in my head. You know - reading about it and convincing myself that I might have ALS. Perhaps the "cramping" I'm feeling is self induced? Maybe the twitches are too? I'm only 30 years old and it seems awfully young to have ALS. Also, I read that symptoms worsen rapidly. How fast is rapidly?
A tingly hand or arm is often the result of compression in the bundle of nerves in the neck. Loosening the neck muscles releases the pressure. Compressed nerves lower in the body govern the feet, and standing up and walking around will typically relieve the sensation. An arm that has "fallen asleep" may also be "awoken" more quickly by clenching and unclenching the fist several times; the muscle movement increases blood flow and helps the limb return to normal.
For the past month, I am experiencing severe numbness and pain in my 3rd and 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.
Hi, After months of leftside pain, weakness, numbness and tingling going from my neck down my arm to my hand, my shoulder blade and my leg and foot, my doctor finally order an x-ray. She said they found a bone spur in my neck at the C-5 level. She said it is also inflammed. Other than physical therapy my doctor said there is nothing else that could be done and didn't feel my leg/foot symptoms were from the bone spur. My question is.....
Some pain in left side of neck and shoulder.Weaker pulse in left hand. When this started I would say pain level was a 11-12 at rest. Now after 7 months, at rest I would say 4-6 and 7-8 if I try to do something like write, type, open a door, open a jar, hold something more than a few pounds etc. I have been on Vicodin 1-2 x's day since Jan. ( I stopped taking these 3-4 wks ago because I was afraid of addiction), Chantix 2x's day (haven't smoked since Feb), Feldene 1x day since Mar.
For the past 6 or so weeks I've been having issues (mainly in my left arm) with random patches of numbness in my upper arm and tingling in my fingers. If I flex my left arm I feel an achy pain down my tricep. The only other pain I experience is a dull ache in my left shoulder. I have scoliosis and kyphosis. Could these issues caused nerve damage in my shoulders somehow?
