Pain from neck to fingers. Do I have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
I woke up out of my sleep in severe pain in my arm from my neck down to my fingers my pinky and ring fingers are numb like they fell asleep but most of my throbbing pain is in the muscle in my arm right below my elbow I had to go to the er they took xrays but found nothing they gave me Vicodin and I finally got some sleep and took the day off.
I was in pain on and off and taking the pain killer every 4 hours my pain was back and even worst than before,I work on computers all day 9 hours a day 5 days a week,the dr in the er said it might be a pinched nerve but never said anything about tendinitis or carpal tunnel he gave me a specialist number and said I should follow up if I was still in pain.
I started looking online and came across this which sound just like what I'm experiencing my question is do you think my symptoms sound like carpal tunnel or tendonitis?
Any information on this would be helpful.I'm still in so much pain I can't sleep at night.
Doesn't sound like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
to me. CTS is pretty finger/hand/wrist/forearm specific.
Is it Tendonitis
? It could be the result of a Tendonitis -dyanamic-, muscles and connective tissue being TOO TIGHT for too long, plus some chronic
Process of Inflammation
Then you sleep funny one night, your body works to hard while you're sleeping, you your nervous system kicks in an acute defensive response which drastically amps up your currently existing Pain Causing Dynamic
The first thing I would have you do is read this page: Magnesium for Tendonitis
Lack of magnesium keeps the body from being able to get out of the spasm mechanism that you're in.
It doesn't really matter what you call it. What you are dealing with is inflammation, TOO TIGHT muscles, nutritional deficiency, and a freaked out nervous system.
Reverse those factors to reduce your pain dynamic.----------------------
