I have been putting together a list of all of my "issues" to give to the neurosurgeon when I go but I have a new one that concerns me and thought I would come to the experts. This started yesterday, severe pain shooting down my neck and spine and filtering into my arms down to my hands. The pain would ease off and on in my hands but then they would be tingly like they were asleep. This morning it is the same way. I could barely lift my arms today to do my hair or even brush my teeth. It was exhausting. So my question is, is this something that some of you may have experienced? My husband wanted to rush me to the hospital last night but I wouldn't go.....should I have?
My left arm falls asleep every night.sometimes i woke up and thought its dead no joke.this is happening now since at least 3years and now my legs start.its scarry i know.sorry u feel like that.do u already have a good nl ns???.u need to inform a doctor about.
I had that too for yrs b4 I even got my Dx....my arm would be dead, just hang, I could not get it to do a thing until it woke up which could take a few hrs some days,....
It did not last until I had surgery, but I am aware of what u mean,....if u feel ok today, it is a good indication u did not need to go to the ER...I would only go if it was breathing related as they can not do much for u...
DO make sure to call and let ur NS know or add to ur list....
I have had this experience also. I found that if I wrapped my elbows in ace bandages to keep them straight when I slept, they stopped hurting.
Also, if I walked too much on concrete, I would have pain down my spine, up my head, & out my arms.
I always said I felt like I was being crucified.
Good to know I am not losing my mind, well not completely anyway. I have tried to call but have not got a response. I have been pretty well down all weekend as my body feels like it weighs a thousand pounds and when I do walk too much I have the dizzy verge of fainting spell. Two weeks until my appointment maybe they aren't worried until they see me. This is so frustrating I HATE feeling like this.
I want to also apologize for venting. I don't want my family to be burdened with my complaining because they don't understand and cant help. I come here because you understand and are or have gone through it...thank you. So please just tell me to shut up if need be.
