3 weeks ago, I was laying in bed and notice my right arm and right leg felt weak. In the next few days, I noticed my right foot and hand felt numb. About a week later noticed pain in bicep and shoulder (top) and shoulder blade. The numbness in foot comes and goes, but the weakness has been persistent and the soreness and pain in bicep and shoulder has been more consistent last week.
On March 1st. Had to go to ER with left side weakness. They did MRI of Brain and no evidence of stroke or tumors. The found lesions and thought maybe MS, so did spinal Tap. Last Tuesday I meet with Neuro. and he said Spinal Tap was negative for MS and everything else. I mentioned right side and he ran me through several clinical assessments and said he wasn't too concerned. But if it didn't get better in two weeks would do MRI of Neck.
The only thing I can think that I did definitely was after Spinal Tap March 2nd. I had to lay flat for several days, ended up with spinal headache and needed blood patch on that Friday. Six Days later is when right side weakness appeared. After blood patch I did start using two pillows to sleep and lay down the majority of the day. That is only thing I can think of that I have done differently.
As of today, Right arm/leg continue to feel weak and numb and right bicep and shoulder pain comes and goes. My question is it possible that a pinched nerve can cause these symptoms on a whole side of body. I have NO numbness in face or head. Just from shoulder down to feet. Thanks for your time.
