Deep ache in arms and tingling hands/arms which is worse at night

by Ella

My arms and hands ache and tingle most of the time, but is worse at night and waking me up at night. My neck is also aching at the top of my shoulders, with the ache radiating right down my arms. Hands and fingers are aching and tingling and nothing seems to relieve it.

I am a 42 year old woman, not as fit as I should be I know and doing a mainly office based job - if that helps to know.

At night I have dreams about being in car crashes and things with severe arm injuries, and when I wake up my arms and hands are aching badly.

Hello Ella,
Three things of importance:
1. Precisely as you can tell me which fingers does it affect.

2. If you turn your head to the right and the left, and then look up, does it hurt in the neck, and down the arms?

3. Using a needle prick your fingers. Is there a difference between right and left, and which fingers.

If xrays have been taken, could you let me have the report please.

Let me know keeping to this thread, and we'll take this further.
