Hello everyone. I've posted on here before about the chronic stiffness in my neck. I've had xrays, MRI's, EMG... all perfectly normal. I've been seeing a chiropractor and it seems to have elevated some of the stiffness.. but it's not where we need to be. He's starting to suspect food allergies and sent off blood to have it tested. Lately I've been going back to the gym and lifting weights again.. nothing too crazy. When I do.. I get this weird tightening, burning sensation in my lower cervical/top thoracic spine. Yesterday I actually went pretty heavy. I could feel the tightness when I got home and just put a heating pad on it. I woke up this morning and it felt like it was on fire. As the day went on it started going away. I also noticed my pinky and index finger are tingling and weak on both hands. I know the ulnar nerve controls those. I do have sore tendons between my biceps and forearm. Does it sound like I simply irritated the nerves? Also.. the top of my T spine does frequently tighten up/burn when working out and I tend to get dizzy. The chiro told me it's just trigger points. Once my traps begin loosening I won't have the problem. Or does this sound like a facet joint problem?
