Avatar f tn I am contemplating having upper arm liposutcion. I am losing weight and working out and my upper arms are just like batwings...it's kind of a hereditary issue..all the women in my family have fat upper arms and seems that wthe the weight loss and working out my upper arms are not looking better.

225237 tn?1333138999 I have been to a cardiologist and she did an ekg and simply said keep my blood pressure down and work on losing weight but she didnt feel it was necessary to come back to her office. I have noticed that I have had an achy feeling in my upper, left arm it is not constant nor is it unbearable. Im kinda overly concerned with my heart! I dont have any chest pain or anything to that nature.

Avatar f tn About 6 months ago I noticed a tender spot in the front upper arm that only hurts when I lifted my arm a certain way or lay on it. Now over the past week I have noticed the strength in the left arm is getting very week more and more. I have noticed the strength in my fingers also going. I find it hard not to hold a fork but to use it. Finding it hard to lift light things. No pain apart from the upper arm when in certain positions. I have just noticed my little finger is going numb also.
Avatar f tn You can try doing some weights or resistance band exercises, but if you're losing weight, that might just be something you will have to put up with. Some of just get saggy skin when we lose weight. Check out YouTube for upper body exercises using weights.

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.

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. Showering and washing myself hurts so much I come out of every shower worn out and nauseous. I can't hold weight in my hand. I can't push or pull or even open jars.
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.

487531 tn?1217984348 I had my daughter almost three months ago. While I was pregnant I suffered from sciatic nerve problems. Now I'm still having problems but the pain is not the same as with the sciatic nerve. The pain doesn’t come from the back and shoot down the leg, it seems to start from either the hip or the groin area. I sometimes have a hard time walking, my older kids tell me I'm still waddling. I can't always bear weight on the leg, and it goes from one leg to the next.

Avatar m tn Exercising the upper extremities is just as effective as exercising the lower extremities for fat loss. The myth of losing weight in certain areas based on selection is a common misconception. Fat loss is eliminated in the reverse order of the locations it was gained. Moderate to low level exercise for long durations such as an upper body ergometer (UBE) is similar to a bicycle for your arms will help to induce cardiovascular exercise similar to walking and biking.

Avatar m tn Ok for about three weeks I have had a discomfort nothing unbearable or even very painful in my left arm. The pain moves sometimes in my shoulder , elbow, upper arm, lower arm sometimes I lay on my arm. When I rub it down the pain stops and it does not hurt all the time. I am some what of a worrier so I just like to be sure I am 6'5 335 had a doctors checkup in Nov. 2007 and everything was fine of course the doc said I need to loose weight.
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 m tn Several summers ago he developed a small dark patch on his upper left arm that was darker in the summer but still visible in the winter. Over the past 3 years it has grown downward past his elbow and now is coming up over the shoulder. A new patch has now formed on the upper right arm and there are a few small patches starting on his back and stomach. I showed an Endocrinologist (he was being seen for unexplained weight gain) and he said he didn't know what it is.
Avatar f tn I have severe muscle pain in my upper outer bicep arm area - especially right side. I was dx'd w/ FMS, and I suspect I also have Myo-fascile (sp?) pain. The right arm pain is so severe I cannot lift it above my head or lift even light objects without pain, and I have to pull my right hand to move it around in bed. My PCP barely addresses the pain - mainly concentrating on the hypothyroid issues. Currently I am on Rx Vit D, and levothyroxine - 137 mcg.
Avatar f tn Can you lose weight during ur pregnancy by eating healthier? Not in a bad way though. I'm starting to gain back fat n I don't like that.

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. Consume less calories and increase physical exercise - cardiac work out to burn more calories as muscles use glucose rapidly. It is better to consult your family doctor and plan your weight reduction program.
Avatar f tn About 2 years ago I started having cramps on the muscle on my upper arm(right one). My right arm always got tired if raised over my head since I was young, but lately this pain is making some activities difficult (I am 52 years old), like for example: I can't blow dry my hair since my arm hurt a lot when I try to hold the hairdryer, sometimes even to wash my hair becomes cumbersome.
Avatar n tn Yes any injury to your back or spinal injury will cause your upper arm weakness if the injury is at the level where the spinal nerve controls your upper arm. Exercise, Physiotherapy and strengthening of your back muscles is very important. Maintaining proper body weight and ergonomics is also important for you . Take care!
Avatar m tn On its own it is not too bad but deep breaths, coughing, sneezing etc make the pain much more severe speading through to my chest and down the back of my tricep muscle in the arm on that side of my body. Also lifting weight with this arm also brings on the pain. This driving me insane as I have a physical job.
Avatar f tn It started with pain in center of upper spine with numbness in right arm that ran down to hand, it has a tingling sensation. It came on gradually and for a very short period thought it had subsided. Symptoms returned and have gradually increased. Now I have burning in the right hand and numbness has begun in left arm as well. I am also having this begin in the legs. Get a lot of cramping in the toes. Upper spine area is painful and stiff , also painful to the touch.
Avatar n tn I fractured right elbow in 2005 and had 2 reconstructive surgeries and have problems with the arm on and off. Tingling in the left arm resolved but in right arm developed muscle pain in forearm and slight tremor in right hand. Hands always been a bit shaky, especially if holding heavy object, but now noticing it more when stressed/anxious. Brain MRI in late Feb. for tension headaches came back normal. Went to rheumatologist in April; said was tendinitis, took blood and put me on Relafen.
