Tingling pain in right forearm and fingers

by PKRAO

I got hurt on the back; right upper side; after some time I felt pain in my right arm going down.

At present I am having tingling sensation starting from forearm down to right hand; I also feel sometimes numbness in little finger of right hand.

I am consulting doctors here. But so far not much improvement. It is since one month; please tell us some treatment.

Hello Pkrao,
It's known as a brachial neuralgia, or pinched nerve in the neck. The little finger belongs to the C8 dermatome from the base of the neck.

Medicine treats it with anti inflammatories and surgery; chiropractic with manipulation. Take your choice.

I don't know of any chiropractors in India.
