Nerve pain shoulder arm

Common Questions and Answers about Nerve pain shoulder arm


Avatar n tn cortisone (2 times) did not help, now it has progressed to my shoulder (the elbow is still bad), again cortisone did not help, I can not do much with the arm so injury is unlikely. Night is the worst as the pain spreads to the muscle between the shoulder and elbow and wakes me after a few hours sleep. Pain meds don't help, PT has not helped, This now is more than a year since the first pain in the elbow and 4 months since the shoulder started.
Avatar n tn I could try anti infammatories like ibruprophin or motrin and try and decrease activity in that arm for a while. It also could be nerve pain but you should rule out the simpler possibilities first.

Avatar f tn Went to emergency with severe pain in right shoulder, up into the neck and down the right arm (woke up with it). Have been on 500 mg. Naproxen , twice daily, for 3 weeks, and 10 mg. Pms-cyclobenzaprine every 8 hours. I'm still experiencing pain plus some new tingling down the arm. Should I be going back to my doctor? It seems this is taking an unusually long time to get better.
Avatar n tn Just this week, the pain in my left shoulder has started to improve while the shooting pain down my arm on the right side has started to occur. Could this be a pinched nerve in my neck? What should my next step be? This discussion is related to <a href=''>Shoulder Pain, Tingly Arm, Pinched Nerve?</a>.
Avatar n tn my mon was in a car accident a few years ago, at the time her shoulder was dislocated - when they put it back in place they damaged the brachial plexus nerves. She now has very little use of her arm and hand (hand almost claw-like) - but not a day goes by that she doesn't have severe pain in that arm. The doctors around here tell her there is nothing they can do - no pain killers seem to help. She normally is not a person to complain about pain.
Avatar f tn t have the constant pain like I did, but if I try to stretch my arm or move it a certain way, I get a burning feeling the runs from my right shoulder all the way down my arm to my hand, the burning pain usually goes away after a couple min. I can still use my arm, but I don't have the same range of motion, I can't lie with my arm under my head, and even trying to shave my legs is a chore. Anyone have any idea what might be wrong. Would an exray show if something is wrong with the muscle?
Avatar m tn about five days ago after a trip to the districts I noticed a pain,well more like a sensation that radiated from my shoulder down the back of my right arm to my fingers from the little finger going in.
Avatar m tn back in June I felt minor sharp shooting pain in my left shoulder/arm. The next day while at work I was using my left arm when I couldnt move my arm what so ever..when I did it seemed most of the pain was concentrated in the shoulder. After a few days of rest and Motrin I still had limited range of motion at the shoulder area and continued buring, tingling feeling from shoulder blade down arm into hand at times.
Avatar n tn the pain feels like being punched but in certain movements or extending my arms straight kinda feels like something is stretching along my arm to base of thumb.If i bend my arms pain is strongest in fold of arm and if i rest arm on elbow with hand in air fingers get numb.Pain has been there constant and doesn't leave even with vicadon pain pills.

Avatar f tn burning pain in my left shoulder blade - arm going numb sometimes and hand tingling but not often pain goes from shoulder blade down left side but does not leave the should blade area
Avatar f tn Constant dull ache but not tender to touch. Hurts to use/raise arm in any direction. Moments of severe pain in shoulder, upper arm, and sometimes radiating down into the elbow and hand. This occurs when sitting still (watching TV, etc), during the day (normal use), and at night (laying down in any position). The severe pain lasts for minutes to hours then tapers off back into just the dull ache and pain with movement.
Avatar f tn I had an accident with my arm once and it turned out i had nerve damage. That will not show up in X-rays. Nerve pain generally feels like a harsh internal burning that shoots up the arm or wherever the nerve is located.
Avatar f tn Your symptoms appear to indicate that swelling or other issues in your shoulder are aggravating the nerve that runs down your arm into your fingers. Are you doing anything to treat the shoulder injury like taking advil and applying ice periodically? Are you able to keep the arm and shoulder relatively motionless as with a sling to keep it from getting reinjured? How did the injury happen?
Avatar n tn Usually, a burning sensation is a nerve related thing. It could be you pinched a nerve. But, I have a shoulder injury and my pain was lower than the top of the shoulder but it was still the rotator cuff strain. It is hard to know. Since it is so localized it may be a pinched nerve. Can you move your arm well?

Avatar f tn I am unable to wear a bra strap as this increases the shoulder/arm pain. The pain in constant and worse with activity such as brushing my hair, cooking/stirring, lifting, writing, swimming, carrying anything. The right hand/arm is always freezing cold and my hand/fingers are swollen 24/7.I cannot sleep on my right side. I want to get rid of pain and figure out what is the cause. I do not believe it is the arm anymore.
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 Hi, The causes of shoulder and arm pain are- frozen shoulder, muscle strain, Parsonage turner syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, shoulder bursitis, nerve compression or shoulder tendonitis. Please go for MRI of spine, and arm and consult a neurologist and orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
Avatar f tn cant get an answer to why im in so much pain with my arm and shoulder, have had 4 diagnosis and now still waiting as none of them were correct
Avatar f tn My new problem started early June this year, I stretched my right arm out and my arm went click (it just felt like my arm came out of its socket and I had to push it back in). From then on I have had nothing but problems with my shoulder and arm. My shoulder is constantly sore, (sometimes worse than other days). It hurts when I laugh as well.
Avatar f tn I have shoulder pain that feels like someone is sticking a knife between my shoulder and ribs. if my arm is not across my stomach it is numb.
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.
