    Neck stiffness, awful pain in shoulder, numbness in arm & hand

    I woke up last Thursday with terrible pain in my neck. I couldn't turn my head at all. Went to Dr. & chiropractor. Chiro has helped my neck in that I started being able to turn my head that night, but my right shoulder (right under and to the right of the back of my neck) is hurting so bad I almost can't stand it anymore. And although my right arm, hand & fingers have had some numbness since then, about 3 days ago it got worse. I have totally numb places on my upper right arm and in my fingers. I understand this could be a disk problem in my neck, but I didn't do anything to hurt myself. No accident or anything. Just woke up this way. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

    Unfortunately, disk problems can be like that. No known trauma, and then pow! Suddenly symptomatic.

    You really ought to go to a doctor and get an x-ray, make sure there are no fractures in there.

    You most definitely SHOULD see a Dr. I have the problem you have and believe that my problem comes from 22 years of phone work without the use of a headset...the Dr I saw said it was repeated injury over the years that is causing this.
