arm pain and finger tingling sensations

I have arm pain and tingling in my pinky and ring fingers and my neck is stiffening more and more. My mri from two years ago suggests moderate spinal stenosis. I have had physio, twice and saw a neurosurgeon last summer. he said that he would want to wait as long as possible to do surgery but am wondering what to do in the meantime for symptom control. I do take Tridural (Tramadol) and tylenol 3 prn and stretch as much as possible. any other at home suggestions from anyone here? thanks for any input....


  • Sometimes it does help to hold your hands over your head. The other thing I can think of is when laying down try to get your arms as far away as you can almost causing a stretch. I might mention your MRI is coming up on a year, so it might be time to re-visit getting a new one to be sure nothing has changed.
  • thanks for the suggestions Tamtam. I appreciate it. and yes it is about two years since i had my MRI so am thinking i should probably have another one soon or a ct scan at least.
