So last night I woke up at 12:00am and my shoulder blade area was friggin' KILLING ME and my whole left arm was asleep (like when you sit on your foot too long and you get the pins/needles). I laid there for about 15 min and was so bloody uncomfortable that I got up and walked around for a good 30 min, arm still completely asleep! I took some pain meds, which helped with my shoulder pain, but of coarse it did nothing for my sleeping arm. It took about 2 hours for my arm to come back, but this morning it still feels kinda' weird.
What the heck is this all about, I figured if it was just cause I was sleeping on it weird that the pins and needles would have gone away after a few minutes...do you think this is related to what's going on in my neck...why did it do this? This is new .... is it neck related or just some random strange thing??? any ideas???
**these are my neck issues:
C4-C5:small posterior disc protrusion w/o central canal stenosis
C5-C6:mild right posterior lateral disc osteophyte complex formation and a small posterior disc herniation, resulting in minimal central canal stenosis and effacement of the right lateral recess.
C6-C7:tiny posterior central disc protrusion and minimal posterior disc osteophyte complex formation with minimal central canal stenosis.
C7-T1:minimal posterior disc osteophyte complex formation without significant central canal stenosis.
