Pins and needles in arm and forefinger when tilting head back

Hi, for the last 2 months now i have had pins and needles in my arm and fingers on my right side. Its worst when i tilt my head back and to the right and my neck area is very tender. Its also worst when i am seated. I think this problem which i have had on\off for 2 years is defo posture related as i seat all day at work. Has anyone had these symptoms and if so can you recommend any exercises to help?

    vastano - I know your symptoms all too well.  Since you can recreate the symptoms with your neck movement, sounds like something going on in your neck.  Highly recommend to report your symptoms to your primary care doctor.  I'd expect s/he would order some diagnostic imaging.

    Welcome to Spine Health Forum

    What you are describing sounds like nerve entrapment and as nutcase said should be reported to your doctor, this is something you do not want to let go on any longer, the longer the nerves are being damaged, the longer the recovery time. Your doctor will probably want to do some diagnostic testing to locate the exact problem and if needed give you a referral to a spine specialist.
