Avatar m tn I keep having a sharp pain that runs down the BACK of my left arm. I went to my doctor and he gave me a EKG and a stress test and everything came back normal. He said, he had no idea what was causing this pain. I don't have it all the time, it comes and goes. I could be sitting watching TV and get it. I even got it while I was having the EKG and nothing showed up. Any ideas what could be causing this pain ? When I first got it I thought I was having a heart attack, but the doctor said, no.

Avatar n 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

Avatar f tn I have been wearing bite guard for last year and it got better but started hurting again this week really bad and having spasms in jaw and now my neck is killing me on the left side. Pain is going up the left side of neck and down left shoulder into arm. Have not had chance to go to doctor yet but am wondering if anyone with cervical disc problems has ever had it to affect temple and jaw area of face??? Am thinking maybe this isn't TMJ at all....

Avatar f tn I have never broken my left arm before but whenever I try to rotate it to the left palm up it causes a sharp pain which follows by pain shivers. Keep in mind I am double jointed and could always do this.
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 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..
7251241 tn?1389564212 Could regular arm pain, pins and needles in left and now right arm be a sign of a undiagnosed heart problem? No matter what I do it just wont go. Literally scared out my mind. Had ECG in feb 2013 and again in Nov 2013 and they're normal, plus x-rays plus bloods. Going out my mind with it. Just carnt seem to get answers.
Avatar n tn My son slept on my left arm every night for about 3-4 months, around the bicep area. I started have severe pain all the way down my arm and in my shoulder. I was wondering if it's possible that the pressure damaged something in my arm or pinched something. I've had an MRI of the cervical neck and all it showed was arthritis at C5 and C6 but no pinched nerves or bulging disc. I don't really get pain until I start using it. I have no pain at night but pretty consistently all day.

Avatar f tn I sleep on my left side. Now, not only am I getting pain in the left arm, I am now starting to get a tingling sensation in my left arm down to my fingertips, which happens mostly during the day. There are some changes, I have been excercising and walking within the last month. We have just recently added weights, but the pain and tingling sensation started before the weights. My diet has changed to grains, vegetables, fruits, lots of water and very litte meat.
Avatar f tn About 7 yrs ago woke up w/tingle/numb in feet, next day legs, next day hands. Went to dr. Every test possible EEG, spinal tap etc.. Every test normal except they did find 1 lesion top of spine which left permanent scar tissue thus hitting nerve leaving me numb from neck down- more like the hum of a tuning fork. Was on prednisone for 6 mos- only thing that took pain away. But have limited use of left arm and no individual finger control.
Avatar n tn A few days ago, I started feeling an odd pain in my upper-left arm. If you imagine where you normally get a flu shot - around that area. Deep inside the arm.
Avatar f tn I have had pain in my neck right shoulder and arm with weakness and numbness and tingling in my hand. Ive had an MRI and these are the findings. From C4 down to C7 multi-level degenerative disc disease is present with multi-level posterior disc protusions with accompanying osteophyte formation which results in bilateral foraminal narrowing and indentation of the thecal sac at the disc levels from C4 down to C7.
Avatar n tn I have pain in the left arm and hand and the right arm to the elbow , left side of the neck. Also pain on the middle of my back between the shoulder blades. I do have " sever" nerve compression in the lower back, "some scoliosis". What to do? Sounds like the Cervical spine is a minor deal...the lower spine does seem to need attention. I'm just trying to find out what needs to be done.
Avatar n tn I have a pain on the left side of my neck and my left arm has a tingling feeling all the way down to my fingers. I've had this feeling for about 2 years now. know what could be causing it?
Avatar f tn I did have some relief with therapy, I do not take any medication. The symptoms that I feel are constant headache, neck shoulder arm pain numbness and weakness in my hands right worse than left. I also have numbness in my right bicep muscle. Would tingling in my feet be related to my neck? I have not be referred to any specialist and am not much of a complainer. I'm back at work, I do a lot of reading and computer work, and my symptoms are back . Just looking for some advice.
Avatar f tn A few months ago, I was stopped dead in my tracks (was leaving work, simply walking to my car)with this horrendous pain under my left shoulder balde. It was so bad, I could hardly breath, turn my head or walk to my car. It went away w/in a few days to a week. About a month after that, the same thing happened (was just standing on my front porch, went to go inside)but to the right side this time.. Again, that went away with in a few days..
Avatar m tn It may not be, but maybe dehydration, or can be what I dealt with which was neck disks that herniated and once they wrapped around the spinal canal and were pinching nerves, my left arm felt like lightening pain and numbness down my left arm. I had c4-7 spinal fusions. If that pain continues for more then a few days, see your doctor. A person doesn't have to have a fall or accident to have a herniated disk.
