But when i sleep it wakes me up too. the area is also warm. THe area goess numb and i get dizzy sometimes friday i took motrin 800mg didnt work. then on saturday i took toradol didnt work today i tried tylenol it didnt work. I dont understand what is going on. this pain wont go away it keeps going numb too im worried. i cant drive anywhere because there is 3ft of snow in the roads. .

my son recently had a sinus infection, and so did i, i didnt get put on medication but he did.
if anyone can get back to me that would be great i dont kno where else to write this, i still have a cough with some mucous .
It sounds like a pinched nerve in your neck. This could cause the pain and numbness. Have you had any testing done like an MRI? I'm not sure if it would show a pinched nerve but I do think it would show bulging discs. If you have tests ran and they show nothing you might want to try seeing a Chiropractor. Only do this if there are no bulging discs and your Dr gives you the okay to do so. Remar
I am having the same problems your having migraines all the time and numbness in my left thumb they so far have found out c5 c6 c7 are bulging in my neck Im also on topamax 200 a day to control my headaches along with other medicines keep pushing your doc"s to see if there's disc bulging.. good luck
