8am having pain in neck and arms but hands are worse they hurt or get stiff from movement or heat or cold. I can barely write and can’t feel things between my right two fingers and drop things all the time even typing is becoming “numb”. In the past year this started but in the past three years I had threeneck surgeries and four back surgeries due to a fall many years ago. Forced me into retirement and social security. Got off OxyContin and oxycodone and tramadol. Just have pain patch burturns given once a week.

Dear Doctor Herrick, I will not be shy to ask your help regarding my situation right now. I know you have good heart. I will not be shy to ask favor in your heart to help me with my situation. Please educate me a little more about my condition. As additional information about me: I am an asian 51 years old woman, small built weighing 98 lbs. 1) Regarding my left shoulder with pinched nerve, it happened last year. It was caused by lifting abruptly a 15 pounds big plastic bag of trash in the office. I was not prepared how heavy that was that I hurt my left arm and shoulder. I remember feeling an electricity like sensation that went from my left wrist all the way to my arms and shoulder including my left neck. I was not bad hurt at all. And so I ignored that. I dont remember it bothered me at all until after 8 months since that incident that I started to feel the sore in my shoulder. I suspect that it was caused by my wearing of sweaters ( that was a little bit tight ) and also how I did wear it caused the pain. I remember popping sound everytime I wear sweaters. 2) It was June 5 when I did an exercise to release the pain on my right neck. It was caused by extending my arms up to my left side of head combing. I did this because my left arm is in pain due to pinched nerve on my shoulder and to save from effort to comb my hair. here is the exercise I did that i followed from the website i read from a person with the same issue and solved the problem. I put my right hand at the back of my neck palm facing the backneck. Then my elbow facing the sky (I was outside the house). Then while walking slowly I moved my shoulder up and down with a count of 4. What actually happened was instead of moving only my shoulder, I moved my shoulder including my right body. Then after that I felt my right knee slightly weakened but recovered right away. Then few minutes I felt numbness at the back of my waist . Maybe as size of my palm is the coverage of numbness. Since then I have discomfort feelings in my right neck and shoulder and arms. I had it massaged by a neuromuscular therapist in july 16. Pain at the back waist was gone but I had tingling and numbness in the arms and right head. So I went to see my doctor and referred me to Physical therapist on Aug 6. After 5 days of doing the stretches and exercises , on the fifth day torso exercise hurt my abdomen under the last rib of my right body. So I stopped my physical therapy cause that was the advise to stop when hurts me. There was very slight improvement but still some discomfort. So I saw a chiropractor on sep 4, 6 and 10. Over the last week due to my sleeping on my right side ( which I mistakenly did) it seems that the pain is now from my right side of head and right neck ( tight and burning sensation) and shoulder and back shoulder blades and farther right chest, right underarm , and whole arm down to my hands. From shoulder down to hands are weak. Regarding my right body I noticed that in the last couple of months it is sore in my right side of my back head, connected to my shoulder and right shoulder blades, and my right side of neck and right side of my chest. Also in the last 3 weeks after 30 minutes of computering there is heaviness and weakening in those areas including my right shoulder down to my right arms. Once I rested I recover strenght. And when I lift or wash dishes and computering or even write a page of script makes my right shoulder arm and hand weak and dicomfort. I know this may sound ridiculous, but I really do need help from someone like you.. In the last 4 months I have never been consistent in resting totally. I kept doing some chores in the house and exerting efforts especially showering, drying my hair ( I have a very long hair up to my waist for years. But in the middle of july , I ve cut it down up to my mid back thinking it may help a bit because I spend 12 minutes drying it using electric fan for the first step and about 10 minutes using the electric hair dryer for final step. It used to be normal activity to me and dont bother me at all. But in the last couple of months it really does bother me already) However, knowing my situation, I slow down a bit and take it easy. But as a normal housewife I have to do what I ve got to do...In the last few days my husband helped me dry my hair because my arms and shoulder are weak after showering. Please consider that in your evaluation... Thank you very much and I hope you can help me- Josefina I apologize but I am not capable to pay the fee. My husband lost his job 5 years ago and I lost my job in April this year. Its sad I am not able to get an answer withou pay :( I apologize.
