middle finger cramp ?? c7 nerve root
Something new started this week. I was on the phone one night and my middle finger and up my arm suddenly cramped or spasmed. It felt something like a charlie horse cramp but I don't know if cramp is the right term. It might have been a spasm or a loss of feeling. There was some pain which seemed to be focused on my finger and elbow.
I thought it was a one time thing until it happened again last night. I was sitting at a table reading a book. The only thing I can relate between the two episodes is that I had my arm slightly bent and resting on the arm of the chair and then the table. This morning I felt some tightness in my hand but not the spasm-like feeling. The two episodes were very scary. It was a very intense feeling of almost paralysis that scared the wits out of me.
Looking at the dermatone map it is the c7 nerve root that goes to the middle finger. And I do have c7-8 facet issues.
I'm wondering if anyone else has had this happen? How do you describe it? And what did it relate to?
Thanks guys. I know I have to call the neurologist on Monday but I was hoping to get some insight first.
