Arm pain while sleeping
I had L5 microdiscectomy surgery 11 days ago. The sciatic leg pain is gone yet I'm left with a numb foot. I was told that will slowly go away as the nerves heal. My problem is arm pain (both) that feels nerve related. I thought I was having reoccurrence of thoracic outlet syndrome which I had in 2005, but now I'm thinking it's related to nerve impingement in my neck since it's both arms and mostly goes away when I'm not in bed. I ended up sleeping in my recliner last night due to the constant ache in both arm.  I called my surgeon's office and his nurse said it's not related to my surgery or medications.  What treatment options do I have short of pain meds or sleeping pills?

First of all, you have to find out what's causing it. Have you had a C-spine MRI? You know, when you go to Therapy for your back, you should mention this to the Therapist. Some neck stretches and exercises might be all you need.
