It is my third day of this. I have continued to work (gardener) - so my job is very physical. I am wondering if this is just a strain or something with my neck. I am waiting things out - usually if I have strained things, it will pass...so as I wait for this to pass or not...
Pain starts at the neck, top of my shoulder, thru the bicep and on the top/inside of the forearm, the wrist into the thumb and pointer finger. I cannot get "enough" pressure when brushing my teeth. I woke this morning with such spasms into my right shoulder blade I couldn't move. You know the kind that you have to lay on the floor. I still have no tingling/numbness in the fingers - just lots of pain. I can wake up with numb hands - but not too often thru the day.
i even get alot of discomfort/pain (nothing as bad as the neck and back - but it doesn't help to add to the pain) into my right buttocks when my right side seems to flare up.
any takers...patti - i have a full day of repeat tests next week and an appt with the nuerosurgeon. thanks ahead of time
