    Nerve Issues after getting a tattoo.

    About 6 weeks ago I had a tattoo completed on my back. I was bent over in a chair for 4 hours and I'm sure that I was putting a large amount of stress on my neck, back, shoulders and arms. Since then i have had a tingling sensation in my left pinky and ring finger. I'm assuming that it is ulnar nerve damage, however, as of recently my right hand and foot also started tingling on and off. The tingling/numbness has decreased in my left hand and I am regaining motion of my fingers. I have not had an EMG, X-ray or MRI as of yet as I don't have insurance until 1/1/10. I also have muscle wasting between my index finger and my thumb on my left hand. It is difficult to grip a golf club properly and it is driving me insane as this is my favorite hobby.

    I have a chiropractic appointment scheduled and I am hoping that I just need an alignment. After reading some posts I am a little skeptical about seeing the Chiro as I do not want them to make it worse. I also have a appointment scheduled with the Nuerologist, however, it is after I see the chiro.

    If anyone else has experience with these issues or could be of some help I would genuinely appreciate it. Advise is always welcomed. Thanks!
