left shoulder pain & arm and hand have sensation of falling asleep

A year and a half ago my left shoulder started hurting, and as far as I know there was no injury. Now on the same side my arm and hands go numb. Also it seems that both my arms tire easily. Anyone ever heard of this? Any suggestions??? Thank you, Donna

Re: left shoulder pain & arm and hand have sensation of falling asleep

the most likely cause of your type of symptoms,and considering how high they begin,would be a possible c spine problem of some sort.you don't actually even have to really 'do" anything in order to have spine issues.alot of degenration with wear and tear and just the age thing can cause problems in any area of your upper body.alot of things we do as teens and our early 20s can come back to haunt us as we get older.i started to actually "feel" some of my past injuries that i just blew off when i was much younger,all start up in my 30s,by 40,i was a mess up in my c spine area.my primary,after a c spine series x ray,told me my c spine looked like a train wreck.his exact words.i would at the very least,see your primary for an eval on all of this.he would most likely do the simple base line x ray to see if there is anything very obviously wrong up there(obvious herniation or misallignment along the column would show with simple x ray).from there an MRI would show the interior part at the nerve/cord level?this just really needs to be done.this would either rule in or rule out the c spine as a possible trigger for the symptoms you are having,then it is up to your doc to make any referrals from there.it all depends on what is actually found.but your symptoms DO need evaluation.good luck with this and please keep me posted as to what you find out,K?

Thank you very much. This makes sense to me and will follow up with the doctor and report back.
