I have been dealing with this for over a year first the whole arm was 100% numb after 5 months I got it back but now all I feel is nerve pain from elbow to fingertips ( i know its nerves because I' am hot and cold sensitive and if it starts drizzling rain on me its like being electrocuted) no one can find out why I am having the nerve pain. It is hard for me to work but Doctor told me I have to so I work at job with no lifting ,I sit or stand what ever I want only 3 days a week. The only lifting I do is mop and put 2 cans of soda in a fridge. In the last 5 months any thing I do with my left arm which I never stopped using gets severe muscle spasms from elbow to fingers. The nerve pain is so bad in my fingers it hurts just to hold a cigarette between them. I have told my doctor so many times I really think he thinks I am crazy. There is days I sit and cry because I am so much pain!!
