Re: shoulder pain/pain or numb tingling hands, fingers
Hi there, Lots of great & knowledgable people here. First have you had any tests such as an MRI or CT? With the tingling & numbness it does sound like there may be nerve involvment. Also if indeed you were to have athrititis that can include the spine or what may be referred to as DDD, which can cause problems such as yours. We are not doctors of course, just people who experiance some of the same & have learned to listen to our bodies.
I have the same problem as do others here & many have found problems existing with the cervical disks. Its painful, scary & frustrating. I would not go to a chiro to be on the safe side & see a doctor with those symptoms. Highly unusaul for any doctor to ignore tingling & numbness. No doctor should. Also these things can progress to become chronic or the symptoms & pain can become worse if let go, not trying to scare you but often when people ache for so many yrs. complaints or not heard or taken as serious as they should be. Your better off to get it checked out sooner then later. Im sure there are others that will chime in & I wish you the best of luck. Sammy
