Avatar f tn My fingers and hand tingle, I have pain in the back of my upper arm, pain through my elbow, and pain in my forearm. I am unable to squeeze anything in my hand without pain. There is a burning pain in my shoulder blade and I'm losing the ability to use my arm with each passing day.

Avatar f tn I have a pain in my upper right arm, its one spot about two inches from the bend in my arm, when my arm is out straight. It affects the weight I am able to lift, and I am unable move my arm the way it usually moves. My pain is very deep in the arm. I also have twitches and spasms in my hand that affect that spot or vice versa. Is this similar to what you're experiencing? I have had this many times, but this time it's been about a week, so far.
Avatar f tn Thanks for taking the time to respond to my question. Your answer is very vague as I'm sure there are too many variables to just "guess". I received a response to this question on another forum that leaves me curious. They wondered if my arm muscles were underdeveloped compared to the level of exertion I was pushing my legs/rest of my body. This could be it. I started doing more upper body weight training, and some arm endurance training. We'll see if that helps.

167 tn?1374173817 You need to consult a gym trainer to plan your work out and also eat a balanced diet. Diet modification and exercise plays a vital role in weight loss program. Cut down on carbohydrates and fats; increase the intake of proteins, fiber, fruits, vegetables, and water.

It is better to consult your family doctor and plan your weight reduction program.

Avatar m tn I have a lot of pain (especially when touched) in what seems to be the fatty tissue, especially in the upper legs (thighs) and the upper arms. I can also feel nodule underneath the skin (not sure if in fat of facia) and if these are pressed, the pain is tremendous, often radiating all over.
Avatar f tn s generally a dull achy pain with occasional sharp shorting pains in the chest, sometimes all across but generally the upper left area and it does travel down the arm a lot. I have made two trips to the ER over this where they did blood work, an EKG and a chest X-ray, all of which was perfectly clear. I have been to a cardiologist where they did more blood work and also an Echo which was completely normal.
1997395 tn?1327439843 This condition is called meralgia paresthetica and is often due to weight gain or wearing tight clothes and belts. Losing some weight or wearing loose clothes and belts often helps relieve the pain/numbness/tingling. Also injection of lignocaine (anesthetic agent) at the site helps. In your case you can apply a pain reliever at the site. Keep a hot water bottle/heating pad while sleeping and apply a local analgesic cream.
Avatar f tn I have very severe pain that seems to range in type. From a sharp piercing pain to a sort of tearing type pain. It is in my upper left back. It is difficult to point to an exact location as it is about the size of a grapefruit. It seems to be neurological.though obviously I am unsure. It seems to include the edge of my left scapula the worst. It is severe pain. The rest of the area feels like i got hit with a hammer a big hammer that as I say is about a grapefruit.

Avatar f tn I have had pain in my arm for more than a week now. In my mind, I think it began with a crik in my neck and then migrated to my right arm. Since then the crik is gone and my arm – more specifically my upper arm has been hurting. Shovelling all the snow we have been getting may have aggravated to the situation, but I am certain that it did not trigger it. My upper arm hurts and seems like it is all bunched up – by the end of the day, my entire arm is hurting and stiff.
Avatar f tn Age: 26 Weight: 280 ethnicity: Caucasian, 6ft3, been happening on and off over a few months. So basically I'm posting this because today my arm feels much weaker, like when I lift it up the muscles in the upper arm feel tired as if they've been used. The main complaint comes from a sort of pinched feeling in my left shoulder. It makes the area just under my arm feel sort of tight and my arm feels week. The sort of tingly feeling spreads to the upper part of my back.

Avatar m tn I have been experience chronic right upper quadrant pain for 1 1/2 years. It all started after my gallbladder was removed because of chronic inflammation. 4 months ago I was a size 8-10 and weight 158 pounds, now I'm 142 pounds and wear size 2-4. In total I have lost less than 20 pounds but have gone down over 4 dress sizes. It seems like I'm loosing a lot of body fat but not weight. I have had blood work, ct scans, and upper gi and everything has come back normal.
Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the forum! Prolonged standing can cause venous pooling and deep vein thrombosis (DVT). This can cause the burning sensation in your thigh that comes on and off. The other possibility is compression of spinal nerves in the lumbar spinal region. This can happen due to prolonged standing and the additional weight that you have put on only adds to the problem. The possibility of diabetes and hypothyroidism too should be ruled out.
