Avatar n tn I HAVE BEEN HAVING SHOULDER PAIN AND NUMBNESS ON MY RIGHT ARM WHAT CAN BE THE CAUSE OF THAT?
Avatar m tn Hi guys, 3 weeks ago I work up with left shoulder pain esp. on the side and upper shoulder. The symptoms got worse and I had an X ray and MRI done of my shoulder. Everything checked out ok. a week later pain got worse and has radiated to my upper back and lower neck. Now I am having trouble lifting my left arm!! I can lift it if I use my right arm to assist but I cannot lift it on my own.Like I have no strength or something is wrong with my nerves???
Avatar n tn for the last several months i have been having severe pain in my shoulder, radiating down my arms and to my hands. there is numbness, weakness and loss of arm movement as well . last week i discovered two tumors on the back of my neck and another tumor on my arm between the elbow and houlder closer to the shoulder. are these tumors causing the pain or could it be something else. yesterday i bought a product called 'stop the pain' and it seems to help quite a bit.
Avatar n tn Hi, Thank you for your question. Generally, shoulder and arm numbness originates from the neck problems due to irritation in the cervical (neck) spine because the nerves that supply the back of the head start in the upper cervical spine. Mostly, these symptoms aggravate after turning head and typically occur in patients with previous neck injuries and in patients with marked arthritis of the upper cervical spine.
Avatar f tn ve been having some shoulder pain and popping and cracking for a few months now, along with upper back pain and occasional finger numbness. The popping is generally when I lift my arm over my head. The front of my shoulder (where it meets the arm) is always sore, and I generally have pain under my shoulder blade. A x-ray of my neck showed mild C5-C6 neural foraminal stenosis, but they didn't look at my back.

The popping is generally when I lift my arm over my head. The front of my shoulder (where it meets the arm) is always sore, and I generally have pain under my shoulder blade. Last night, I felt it popping, then again, and shoulder and most of my hand and wrist went mostly numb.
Avatar f tn These accumulated changes caused by degeneration can gradually compress one or more of the nerve roots. This can lead to increasing pain in the neck and arm, weakness, and changes in sensation. In advanced cases, the spinal cord becomes involved. This can affect not just the arms, but the legs as well”. Taken from http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000436.htm Investigations like MRI spine are done to rule out.

Avatar m tn I have pain in my neck, right shoulder blade area and my right arm. The pain is different depending on what I am doing. When lowering my head to get in my car or just moving up and down, the pain is in my neck. Sitting in bed it is in my shoulder and arm and sometimes my arm will have a slight numbing sensation. Coughing and sneezing, there is shooting pains through all three. Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this?
Avatar f tn I recently had an MRI to find out what is going on with my neck, shoulder and arm. I was thinking that it is part of the FM but more severe in that area. Haven't got a reply from the nuerologist because she's decided to pack up and move her practice.

Avatar n tn Then, it moved to my wrists, forearm, elbow and now up to my shoulders. The pain and numbness wakes me up at night. I am not working on a computer any longer in my job-just doing normal projects around the home but the pain has continued to increase. Carpel Tunnel has been ruled out and my last doctor suggested I see a neurosurgeon because of the blanket numbness. Is this the best place to begin?
Avatar n tn Also I get the sharp pain at times on the top of the shoulder between both arm and shoulder, and at the front of the arm in between the shoulder and arm. Many times the pain is right in the middle of those areas, and at times it pulsates down to almost my elbow. I do feel a numbness and crawling in my fingers and my index finger and thumb at times they get a pulsating mild pain in the tip of both fingers. I also feel a crawling sensation in the palm of my left hand.
Avatar m tn About 3 months ago I suffered from a bulging cervical disk that resulted in acute neck, shoulder, and left arm pain with tingling in the 2nd and 3rd digits of my left hand. With consevative treatment of NSAIDs and prednisone, the pain has all but disapeared as has the numbness and tingling in my digits. I still have minor discomfort at times that is relieved with ibuprophen. I also continue to feel pain in my neck and shoulder when I sneeze. I exercise daily without pain complications.
Avatar f tn Recently I have not been able to relieve an intense burning sensation around my right shoulder blade. It is coupled with a strange pain/tingling feeling shooting down my right arm. It's hard for me to tell if it is connected to any pain in my neck because a few years ago I had a Jefferson (C1) fracture and was in a Halo for 5 months- so neck pain has been a daily thing for me since then. There are two more factors that relate to this new issue.
Avatar f tn However, after adjustment #8, I noticed I started getting numbness and tingling my shoulder down to my fingers on the side where I have the shoulder and elblow pains, slight numbness and tingling in lower back and just above the knees down to my toes of same side, and some tingling sensation on chest on same side. After adjustment #9, I noticed that the numbness and tingling got worst on same side, but also started slightly in hand and leg on the other side. What does this mean?
