Tingling in hands and arms

Tingling in hands and arms


I have been having a pain in the left side of my neck and shoulder and also tingling and pins and needles going down both my arms and hands but worse down my left arm and hand. Also there is a pain in my left shoulder and arm. I went to the doctor and he said it was an inflamed muscle and gave an inflammatory drug and muscle relaxer.

I have been taking them for about three days, the pain in my neck and shoulder are not quite as bad but the tingling and pins and needles in both my arms are still there and do not seem to be getting any better.

I can move no problem and do things it, but once I sit or go to bed that is when it gets worse; now the tingling and pins and needles they do not go away no matter what I do it is always there; it is really starting to scare me, I would to know why this is happening?? Please help me!

Hello Kelly,
Don't be afraid but you do need to something more positive than take pills.

First we need to see if your doctor is right, and it's muscular, or if there is a pinched nerve.

Turn your head to the right, and then simultaneously look up. What happens?

Go to chiropractic help website, and type upper limb tension test into the search function which you'll find in the navigation bar. What happens?

Thirdly, place your hand on your head. Does it relieve or increase the pain and tingling in your arm.

And lastly, try and tell me as accurately as you can which fingers are affected.

Keep to this thread with your answers.
