Pinched nerve C7-T1 with arm and shoulder pain

Hi,On top of my lower back problems I also experienced neck ,shoulder and arm pain problems.Went for an EMG and doc told me that I have a pinched nerve C8/T1.Has anyone had this area affected and if so what have your experiences been.I did't get an MRI so I'm not sure if there is a hernoation or if it's DDD.
I have to make a decision on back surgery soon (Fusion 2 levels) ad this cervical problem doesn't help matters. Thanks

Having been through surgery on the T-Spine I would want an MRI on it as well. It is hard to say how succesful your other surgey would be if there is a major problem above on the spine.

Re: Pinched nerve C7-T1 with arm and shoulder pain

Hi,Thanks for the reply.My doc is more concerned at this time with my lumbar region.He didn't tell me what might be the source of the nerve radiculapathy sp.?that showed up on the EMG.I have to ask him next time but I'm so bummed out with my back that I forgot to ask him.Thanks

Re: Pinched nerve C7-T1 with arm and shoulder pain

Top I have a blown out c-7. ( I'm usually on the spinal disorders board) all started with severe burning pain in left ring finger, proggested to pain in left foot and sometimes electric shock down both arms. The best thing I've learned in 4 months is not to sleep on my stomache-- cause if I do i wake up with completely (DEAD) hands, but not sleeping on stomache really stops that. good luck.
