Neck pain radiating down arm

Common Questions and Answers about Neck pain radiating down arm


Avatar m tn Hi ChiefyMcChiefChief, I would have it checked out with your regular family doctor. Anything involving pain in your head, particularly radiating pain needs to be investigated by a professional. You say you've tried muscle relaxers, heat, ice and rest. I'd make an appointment with your doctor. Let your doctor tell you what he or she thinks is going on. Better to be safe. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I am a 49 year old female and have had several episodes of radiating arm pain. It starts in one arm and quickly radiates down both arms lasting only a few seconds. The pain is very severe. I have no chest pain or shortness of breath. I have had an ECG, stress echo and have seen a cardiologist. Everything is normal on my stress echo. The only thing I have is hypertension. The first episode I had was approx 6 - 12 months ago. Then I had 3 episodes within a 4 week period.
Avatar f tn Please help.. I have back problems, but never have I experienced this much pain.. Monday I started to have pain in my neck. It felt like I hade a crick in it from sleeping on it wrong, but I was at Walmart when I started experiencing the pain. It got worse that night. The pain then started going down to my shoulders. When I laid down in my normal sleeping position, on my left side with my arm under my pillow, I couldn't put my arm under my pillow because the pain was so bad..
1375148 tn?1323166921 i felt that i was getting better but in the last month or so i get this radiating arm pain which feels like its burning inside of my arms, at the top, middle and fingers.... it comes and goes, and seems to be worse the more i use my arms.... Do you think i should go back for another consult or is this fairly normal with this type of issue??
Avatar f tn I sometimes experience shoulder pain, pain radiating to my left breast and tingling pain in my thumb. I don't know if taking vitamin B12 and using ice and cold patches will be good for you but they certainly help me. Maybe you can ask your doctor before trying. I hope and pray for your fast recovery.
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 m tn Since then l now have a chronic burning ache pain in my lower left arm radiating down into my hand along with tingling. Wondering if the accident has made my DDD worse and brought on these sypmtoms. Have had two years of physio no relief.

1818795 tn?1317161112 I have this in my neck and the pain radiates down my arm, making my arm/hand tingly sometimes. The pain is pretty bad right now, in fact I can barely turn my neck right now and it sorta feels like I have a knot in my neck. I have low back pain as well that comes and goes. I am scheduled for an MRI on Thur to see if possibly I need surgery. My DR has me on pain medication (Percocet 10/325) which has been helping up until the past few weeks.

Avatar n tn Would shoulder bursitis cause pain in the neck as well as the upper arm? Neck pain feels like a crick but much worse.
Avatar n tn I have had constant pain in my left shoulder radiating down arm into my thumb and next two fingers. This feeling is like a throbbing sensation, really deep dull pain then into pins and needle in the fingers. I am taking Mobic in the morning and Codalgin every 4 hrs to relieve the pain. It is significantly worse at night while I am try to sleep. I have had it for 2 months. Chiropractic treatment worked for a while (entrapped nerves in the scalene muscle).

Avatar f tn i have radiating pain down my left arm, my left forefinger is numb, and have radiating pain just below my left collar bone as well. doing physical therapy twice a week. this includes stim, exercises, ultrasound and neck traction, which is great. because when i am on the neck traction machine all radiating pain is gone. in therapy 2 months now... seeing neurosurgeon to get opinion on steroid injections, as surgery is always a last resort for me.
Avatar f tn Its not only the reflux, it is also muscle spasms and nerve pain radiating into the back of my arms traveling down. Had a cervical fusion and this only helped some arm pain and had actually made my back worse. The docs said my neck was causing all of this, but it wasn't. Any help appreciated.
Avatar n tn I had upper back pain that ended up radiating down my arm and back and forth. I thought everyone would think I had gone crazy stating that the pain traveled. Also I had burning sensations and tingling. Turned out to be a pinched nerve in my neck C6&C7. When this happens there are tiny nerves that go down your back and down your arms. depending on which nerver produces the different locations of pain. Usually a tingling and burning sensation are examples of nerve problems.
Avatar f tn Did they do endoscopy at same time if so this would cause throat irritated. If having pain from neck down shoulder and arm ask if its a nerve compression. I have major neck pain issues shoulder arm back etc.... anyway the way explained to me nerve compression in my neck is causing the shoulder arm pain and oh yes the migraine type headaches. Good luck and prayers for you with pain.
Avatar m tn Is it possible that I have angered one of the many muscles in the shoulder blade area and it is radiating down my arm or does this sound like something else. A couple of times I have thought it was getting better only for it to come back worse. I have no other symptoms like weightloss by I do have a hard time sleeping with the pain so I am very tired.
Avatar m tn There can be numerous side effects such as headaches and lower neck pain or shoulder pain, shooting pain in the neck or radiating pain down the arm and also tingling in hands and fingers. Take care!
Avatar m tn The "sternocleidomastoid muscles" are most likely those which are giving you radiating pain from ear down to neck/shoulder/arm(Google for picture of this muscle if unfamiliar with its location). There are two of these muscles in the superficial layers of the anterior (front) portion of the neck that make the shape of a ā€œVā€, and they are primarily helpful in rotation, flexing and extension of the head.
Avatar f tn I have constant pain from my back, at my left shoulder blade that goes into my left shoulder and radiates down my entire left arm. I find knots in my back and arm that feel like bruises. What could this be?
Avatar n tn I have pain, muscle cramp, and tingling in my shoulder. and some pain on and off down the arm. Mostly the arm feels heavy. Is this from C5-6 stenosis? Requiring surgery? It is very uncomfortable!
