Sore neck numb hands

Common Questions and Answers about Sore neck numb hands


Avatar n tn I have been having problems with swelling and sore back and migraines since my daughter was born three years ago. Now, my back and neck are hurting. My feet, part way up my calves, hands and tongue all feet numb with pins and needles for four days. I am kinda hunching over when I walk. What is going on? I have also been diagnosed with bronchitis and feel like there is a lump in my throat. My whole face hurts, too.
Avatar n tn I am having left forearm pain, my left middle finger is partially numb, I have a pain between my shoulder blades, the back of my neck feels numb, and my index finger is almost completely numb. It has been this way for over a month now and I am on 600mg Gabapentin and hydrocodone and have been on these meds for over a month and the Dr.s are doing little to help. They put me on 4 weeks of steroids and it did nothing. My initial MRI showed mild bulging in my C-5 disk and that is pretty much it.
Avatar n tn About a year ago I starting having numbness in my toes, and general soreness and achiness in my feet. Now the symptoms have intensified; another weird symptom is if I'm laying down and I flex my toes downward, they will cramp and draw & I have to rub the cramp out. I don't have diabetes and wonder what this could be? (I also sometimes have "pins and needles" in my neck and shoulders). It's making me miserable. Would appreciate some insight please.
Avatar f tn I am overall healthy mid 40's a bit overweight but no health problems other than GERD. The past two weeks my neck and upper back have been very sore & stiff. My neck continually feels like I slept on it wrong? Ive been having some esophagus tightness but nothing alarming. Zantac is definitely helping with the GERD symptoms. Im blaming the neck and shoulder pain on GERD too but not Im starting to think it might be more?
Avatar n tn the pain is also in my upper back going down about 3 vertabrates its always sore in there as it is in my neck and shoulders as well . my hands and arms loses sensation almost every day but usually not to the point where they go numb .. when im laying down and i toss over to each side i feel and hear clicking and feel movment in my c - spine on bolth sides depending on witch side i turn on . it horible to live every day like this but i somehow manage like all other ppl with injurys .
Avatar n tn I ahve herniated disc's in my neck that cause my 4th and 5th fingers to go numb, get real cold and turn kind of blue. The say that the ulnar nerve is being hit by possible muscle spamsms. From my experiance this kind of thing could be any number of things. I'd have it checked out by your doctor. I was lucky because I was in the doctors office when it happened and the MD was shocked. I guess he thought I was making it up or something. It took 4 MRI's to find the herniated disc's.
Avatar n tn If i raise my hands above my head the redness will dissapear in seconds and they are not as hot anymore, but if i leave my hands by my sides I can just feel the blood rushing to my hands and turn beat red. Also my hands and feet will be very cold in the winter and sometimes turn blue or even red when they are very cold. It has gotten worse this winter and I don't understand why it happens or what i can do.
Avatar m tn The surgeon is suggesting removing the disk And fusing the vertebra ( I think) together But the grey area is my leg? My question is can a disk in my neck cause the numb and twitching of muscles in my leg Also could I live a normal life after it? PS also I feel like I have been running when I walk in my right leg (all right side) Please help life is getting very hard!
Avatar n tn For the last two weeks my hands (the palms and between my fingers)will begin to itch periodically without warning. When I scrath them it only gets worse, the itching is intensified and they begin to burn. I have tried multiple things to relieve it but to no avail. It starts and stops continully through out the day and there is no one indicator of what might be causing it. I am worried that it might be my liver or gallbladder due to stones in my gallbladder.
Avatar f tn The left side of chin and lip from the corner to the center of the jaw is STILL numb. My extraction sites are a bit sore but no real pain to speak of. JUST THE NUMBNESS and now my teeth feel like they are being squeezed together but only on the left bottom toward the front. Day 3: Still no real pain but the numbness is getting me very very worried :( and the squeezed teeth feeling is still there. I have been noticing an itch every now and then but cant feel anything when I try to scratch it.
Avatar n tn Hi! Any trauma to your neck or neck problems? I started out about a year ago with pins & needles in my hands & feet. I was dx'd about 4 or 5 months ago with Peripheral Neuropathy - unknown cause since B12, thyroid was ok & no diabetes. The neurologist had done a nerve conduction study and that was it. My MD ordered an MRI of neck & I have some spinal cord compression & nerve compression. I am hoping that this is what is causing the neuropathy.
1855970 tn?1325827213 ive been dealing with anxiety for a few months, but recently ive been having symptoms that really concern me. i have a lot of neck pain/stiffness on the left side, head pressure, ear fullness, throat tigjtness, always tired, dry eyes and the sensation of something stuck on the right side of my throat. i can pretty much deal with everytging except for the feeling of something in my throat, its driving me crazy.

667923 tn?1421466324 from the CM or I don't know. My neck hurts all the time like I have a vice grip on it or do you know how it feels to have someone just hold your neck and walk you around. That is a terrible feeling. I hurt in my legs so badly. Especially behind my knees. I can't point my toes bc I will have a cramp in my foot. My hands do the same thing. I took Levaquin and am wondering if it isn't ruptured tendons. I do have an attorney on that.
Avatar n tn yes you're not alone. do you guys also have sweaty palms and feet ?
Avatar n tn I wake up in the morning with a slight headache and sometimes numb and tingling hands. I have been to every doctor there is, ENT, headache specialist, GP, Gyno, Dentist, TMJ Specialist, Heart Specialist and the list goes on with none of them being able to say anything but I must just be pre dispositioned to high bp and there is nothing else wrong. I've had MRI's and head scans that show nothing.
Avatar n tn Hi, for about a year now i have had this fizzing sound in my neck that occurs randomly, usually when i am just laying down. It doesnt occur when i am moving my head or anything, its usually just when i sitting still or laying down. It sounds like it is coming directly from the back of my neck and is starting to worry me. I also experience these weird pains in my head that come for about a second and then go and come back again every 10minutes or so.
Avatar n tn Numb arms, hands, neck tight, eyes spacey, weird vision, mind spacey like migraine but no intense pain. Just had period after 5 months none, then these symptoms appear. Replaced extreme muscle tension. Can walk better now but got this weird eyes, brain foggy feeling. sinusy, migrainey. Cant concentrate, see well to type, work. Keep taking walks to get thorugh this time.
Avatar n tn the pain is also in my upper back going down about 3 vertabrates its always sore in there as it is in my neck and shoulders as well . my hands and arms loses sensation almost every day but usually not to the point where they go numb .. when im laying down and i toss over to each side i feel and hear clicking and feel movment in my c - spine on bolth sides depending on witch side i turn on . it horible to live every day like this but i somehow manage like all other ppl with injurys .
Avatar n tn Then, I had a series of 3 ESI's(Epidural Steroid Injections) and was hit by the procedure for I jumped on the table and was numb in my hands/feet immediately following and still am to this day. I have even noticed that when I scratch w/ a dental pick...yah..I said dental pick. I have to scratch so hard in some places to feel it and in some places it feels like the pick has turned to the dull side, but no. I hope and pray that a doc friend of mine is not right.
Avatar f tn Basically, I just want to know if I could have injured a disk in my neck - I don't believe it is a pinched nerve, because my hands are not numb or tingling. I have two doctor appointments today, I a hoping I will be given an MRI in the future, but I believe doctors are reluctant to do that because of my age, they think there is nothing seriously wrong, even though I am in excruciating pain.
Avatar n tn In a week, she lost the use of the muscles in her face, hands, and legs. She also had pain in the neck. She had fallen at work and we thought it was just back and neck strain from the accident. When the parathesis set in, we went to a neurologist. After a series of MRI's she told us that there was nothing wrong with her. I told her that she was crazy and went to another doc in another town and found that she in fact had Guillian-Barre Syndrome.
429949 tn?1224695179 I get horrible pain in my neck and back that it is even causing new syptoms like numb, tingling, painful arms and hands. I have dealt with the actual neck and shoulder and back pain for years now, but these new syptoms of the arms and hands just started a few months ago. The third major and annoying symptom is the fatigue. Ugh I am only 26 years old and should not feel this bad and tired all the time.
Avatar n tn I get sharp, scary numb pricks in the right side of my neck as well. I too sit in front of a computer for 9 hrs a day. it is really starting to scare me....hoping it isn't something dangerous. I suffer from anxiety as well....curious how many of you do as well?? Please anyone let me know if you find out the problem, solution or medical diagnosis!!
Avatar m tn I know there's more to it. My hands and fingers are normally sore now. I can't write more than 1/2 a sentence at a time and my hand is tingling with needles and painful pressure in my palm. I have to stop writing and put my hand down until the feeling comes back. If it doesn't come back I get up against a corner of the room and press very hard. Now that is failing to work. My legs and back ache I feel 20 years older than I am.
Avatar f tn I have a weird area on my back that seems to be tingling/numb. Its an area about the size of a golfball midway down my back just left of the spine. At first I did not think much about it but it has been here for around 2 weeks now. Theres no pain at all and the tingling/numbess comes and goes throughout the day. Strangely it does not bother me when im sitting unless in "hunched" over something like typing on a laptop.
Avatar n tn Cure for numb hands & arms while sleeping. I had a similar problem of my hands and arms becoming numb & tingling while I was sleeping. This went on for over a year. I looked online and found nothing that would explain what was causing this. I'm in good health otherwise, so I did not believe it could be a disease of any sort. I asked my doctor about this but she did not give me an answer. Finally, I found someone else that had the solution.
Avatar n tn However, my sister-in-law called me and told me about her sister, who had similar symptoms to me, lump on back of neck, hand going numb (mine only gets a pins and needles sensation or a tingling though), and her sister's was malignant. They couldn't operate on it because it was near her spine and so they put her on medication that seems to be shrinking tumor and she is doing well. This conversation totally has panicked me now. I have six children aged 7 to 16 and so worried now.
Avatar n tn Also in the past year, my neck started getting sore with any physical activity and spreads to the shoulder area. Now it's just sore all the time. A slight jolt like hitting it when I get in the car sends a shooting pain from the top of my neck down to my shoulders. I am hypothyroid (under control), take Zonisamide for seizure disorder, and used to be fairly active though now I tire quite easily.
