Cold hand and pricking sensation
I had a 2 level ADR at the end of March (C5-6 and 6-7), all has gone well up until about a month ago when I started to get new symptons.
I was waking up in the night unable to feel my little and ring fingers on what was my good hand (right), this hasn't happened so much recently but I wonder if I'm just sleeping through it. I also get a cold sensation across the back of my hand and today it crept up my forearm. It is painful for me to write more than a couple of sentences and I also find I'm stopping in the middle of words, I have to really think hard to continue. This is a real concern for me, I can't describe what it is like, I know what I want to write but have to concentrate so hard to get the letters out - they used to just roll out the end of the pen without any effort. On top of this I get a pricking feeling down my forearm .............. what is going on?
I've just come back from 2 weeks of physio, manipulation at T3-5 resulted in quite a bit of pain, along with my 1st rib - I had no idea they started so high up!!
I'm waiting for an EMG test but was just wondering if anyone here can shed any light on these symptons.
