Good morning....Having "SHOCKS" elbow/forearm
Good morning to all,
Just curious, but yesterday while working (I transcribe/type in my job), for the first time along with my 4th and 5th finger numbness, occasionally, I started having "shocks" in my right elbow and right forearm.
This was not with any neck flexion, as far as it being associated withLhermitte's, but not sure.
My EMG of my right arm would out the peripheral nervous system, although I did have a positive Tinel's sign.
I go next week for my follow up with neurologist, so should I assume it is important to relay this information to him?
I do plan on talking to him, in a round about inquiring way, to see if he will start me on something disease-modifying because I am continuing to have new symptoms with each passing few months.
Hi, Terri. This sounds more like a pinched ulnar nerve. Both of mine are pinched at the elbow, though I rarely have trouble with symptoms. Things can go in and out of the pinched mode pretty easily, so it might not show up consistently on tests.
Absolutely let your neuro know about this. It's clearly a nerve problem.
