Background - I'm a 54 y/o man. Very active, mountain biking, dirt bke riding & racing. Slightly overweight 5'9' and 195 lbs.(in shape normal weight is around 180lbs). I used to lift weight quite a bit , but not much lately. Starting on the P90X exercise program (last week) to get back in shape and lose a few pounds.
My issue is that for the past several months I had a dull pain in my arm pit. With this pain I have noticed a slight tingling of my right hand and find it difficult to sleep without having my arm getting numb.
Whet dirtbike riding yesterday and everything was fine , but today I have a constant dull pain in my left arm pit and slight numbness in right hand all day. I lay down and my entire arm gets numb and I need to move it around to get it feeling normal again. Seems like I am cutting off circulation in my left arm somehow. Just typing gets my hand numb.
As a note about two years ago I was diagnosed with deep vein thombosis in my left calf. Was treated with cumidin.
Still hava a slight dull pain behind my left knee cap. Doctor believes it from my dirt biking (prussure from the jump landings).
