Neck pain causes numbness in hands

Common Questions and Answers about Neck pain causes numbness in hands


Why I was there I asked him about the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my head, h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span>s, and feet that I would wake up 2-3 times a night in pain from my hands being numb. They did an exam and said my whole nervous system was inflamed. They sent me for a MRI w/ and w/o contrast on my head,9 blood test(MS,RA,Lupus,Vitamin Dif.and a few more) , and an EEG. He also gave me some Rx. I had all the test done they came back normal. Then I was sent to get an MRI of my neck w/o contrast, and an EMG they came back normal.
Following a fusion procedure, there is an increased risk of degeneration of the adjacent discs which could produce similar symptoms (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>, shoulder pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>, changes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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.
Hi - Your hand pain can be a combination of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness/tingling resulting from the problems with your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, but you could have co-existing arthritis. There are two main types of arthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disorder causing loss of cartilage between the individual bones. This causes the bones to rub together and produces pain and loss of movement. Rheumatoid arthritis is a systemic and chronic disease affecting the synovium (lining) of the joint.
my scalp was still painful for a week, and I noticed a slight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my skin of my upper legs (top of thighs and bottom). The next day, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness had spread to my torso area. Over the weekend, this numbness had spread to my fingers, hands and arms. my doctor checked out my reflexes (ok) and booked me for a blood test, to check for vitamin B12 deficiency, etc. 2 weeks later, the blood test results were normal. I am now waiting for a Neurologist appointment, which may take a while.
my problem is frequent slight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span>s when I awake <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the middle of the night. I have used Rogaine on my hair since it was approved but have recently stopped because after a few days of using it as directed, the numbness in my hands can extend to the whole arm. Hanging my arm off the side of the bed causes feeling to return in about a minute. A couple of beers at night also seems to make the problem worse.
Burning/tingling/numbness/pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span>s and legs can be due to compression of spinal nerves <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>/lower back or due to peripheral neuropathy secondary to diabetes, hypothyroidism, Lyme’s or lupus. Rheumatoid arthritis of the joint, carpal tunnel syndrome, anxiety stress, chemical dermatitis, vitamin B12 or D deficiency etc are the other causes. Treating the cause will help relieve the symptoms. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Take care!

I don't know how left/right handedness plays into any of it. But, I'm also right handed. my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> is more pronounced on the right side. It seems the majority of my symptoms are on the left side. Although, two days ago, two toes on my right foot went completely numb. Felt like there was a hair wound tight around them & cut off all feeling. Only lasted a few hours though. You're not alone!
This happens to me quite often, I was told by my doctor it was a pinched nerve <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> spine area, but nothing was ever folled through on this. Is that what causes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness and tingling in my arms and hands during sleep only?
injury to a nerve -- for example, a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> injury may cause you to feel numbness anywhere along your arm or hand, while a low back injury can cause numbness or tingling down the back of your leg • Pressure on the spinal nerves, such as from a herniated disk • Lack of blood supply to an area -- for example, plaque buildup from atherosclerosis in the legs can cause pain, numbness, and tingling while walking (this is called vascular claudication) • Other medical conditions, including: o Carpa
I also have pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my arms and h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span>s at night. It runs from the top of both arms into my fingers. It happens every night no matter what I do. If I work, don’t work, watch TV all day, exercise, it doesn’t matter. I get the pain every night. I do have carpal tunnel but reportedly just a mild case. Well, if it’s carpal tunnel causing all this pain at night, there is nothing mild about it. The pain wakes me very night, and I know how important sleep is.
Over the last couple years I have gone through treatments to move my jaw into proper position so it doesn't put tension on the joint and muscles along with going to a chiropracter as my jaw moves to keep my neck and back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> line. I rarely have any pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> from that any longer. my mom also has symptoms of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> arms and legs, burning feeling of the tongue, along with her face pain, headaches, and burning feeling on top of her head. Best of luck to you.
I HAD <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> SURGRY TWO YEARS AGO and IT WAS SUCESSFUL. BUT NOW I AM <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> EXTREME PA<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> THE neck and DOWN my ARM and LEG WITH numbNESS and PinS and NEEDLES .
I guess and want to be prepared for my not so easy going neuro. my h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span>s start the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness on pinky fingers and inward... Then travels up my arms on the outside til the elbow. I was at dentist yesterday getting braces off (yeah!) and my hand went completely dead numb but I could still control them to sign my name .. They were cold feeling too --- stress related I do have lhermites sign down my pain just the tingly part ..
I'm also sorry to hear about your pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>. I also have fibro (as well as other chronic pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> issues) and I do also get pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span>s and fingers, however, I do also have arthritis in my hands, so I'm not 100% sure how much of the pain is fibro pain and how much is arthritic pain. It IS typical for fibro pain to be worse in the mornings, so that part of your pain description is not surprising to me for fibro.
Now over the months I've had severe back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> leg pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness that is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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.
2. Pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> across the back of my head, with swelling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the ocipital area. The worse the pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span>, the worse this pain is. No one has ever explained why the swelling occurs. 3. 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.
for 12 days have had an onset of some mild memory loss,confusion,losing of time a little,extreme exhaustion, muscle weakness, i believe muscle wasting in calves, muscle twitching(have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> past). numbing tingling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> forearms, h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span>s,feet, lower legs.back pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> middle to lower back. neck stiff. I work hard and drive alot.
Hi, For several years I have experienced strange twitching in most areas of my body together with bouts of dizziness. I have now really strange burning, aching pains <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span></span></span>s and feet. The muscle that runs down the side of my hands by the little finger is really sore as are the balls of my palms. It hurts when I try to stretch my hands I have also been having twitches and muscle spasms in my legs and often when I turn my neck it feels as though something is sticking and crunching.
I have constant muscles spasms. The last few weeks I have had a pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> (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.
If my shoulder/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> is better (which it is slightly) yet I'm still weak <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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.
my issues i have these days are Muscles cramp/pain /twitching. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>numb</span>ness and tingling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my arms /feet specially left one. Joint pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> fingers (hard to write a page /type longer in keyboard).Can't stand longer muscles started to hurt so it seems like lot of stiffness. lack of energy not that bad as it used to be . I heard it took longer to completely symptoms free in thyroid even your level is stabilize ?.
my symptoms include - Constant bilateral headache - Constant neck pain and stiffness - Constant jaw and face pain - Pulsating of my Sternocleidomastoid (SCM) muscles - Facial numbness - Electrical shocks in my eyes ( this is probably the worst feeling) - Feeling of someone shoving my head to the left - Tightness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my sinuses and throat - Ear pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> and a feeling of fluid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my ears - Vertigo - Tightness at the sternum causing difficulty breathing - Bilateral arm pain and numbness - Muscle spasm
He felt the spinal cord compression <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>neck</span> was much more significant than the pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> from the herniated disc <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my back. I had the discs removed at those levels, cadaver discs put in and hardware to fuse the three vertebra involved. I'm symptom free and am thankful I had a neurosurgeon that was so thorough. I had hesitated to say anything about my arm/hand symptoms, because I had been to several dr's in the past who made me feel like a whiner.
