Hey Jim, I've got the exact same problem! But what is worrying is that the numbness started as the size of a small coin, over the years its spread to virtually half of my upper back, and the front is numb just below the clavicle bones. I'm having a full MRI soon to ascertain what the problem is.
how come doctors will never send you to a chiropractor??It's so obvious that you both have a pinched nerve in your spine or a rib out of place,it just does not go away with meds. Once a nerve is pinched it causes your muscles to contract therefore cutting off circulation to all the muscles and limbs they go numb and usually stay that way till whatever is out of place is put back.
