Hope you are having a good day! I've been having pain in my left arm for over a year and a half. About 4 months ago my DO had MRI done on my neck.She determined I will need ACDF C-3 thru C-7 probably. I had a selective nerve block about a week ago in my C-6 nerve. Positve results came out of that. The pain in my arm went away for about 6 hours.
This morning I woke up with tingling and some numbness in my thumb and two fingers next to it on my left hand. I think its a bit better now, but still there. I'm figuring this is from this whole problem. At C-6 my disc is impinging on the nerve going into my left arm and there is a bone spur.
The only other symptoms I've had all along are the severe left arm pain and it goes into my shoulder blade often.
Is this tingling in fingers common with this problem? I see my surgeon again Sept 29th and my DO mid-september.
