Hi I have had this problem for 5 years, it started with a numbness and pins and needles in my hands at night, also a general weekness, and dropping things, so I had a carpel tunnel done, this has made no difference I now have really servere pain in my right arm which if i use it for any lenght of time shakes, I also get swelling just below my elbow and on my wrist. I have had nerve tests but they havent produced any results I have been told today that they think the problem is further up my arm poss in my neck or brain but I went down this route 4 years ago and had an MRI as they were looking for MS but nothing showed up, my arm only shakes when I have used it alot like typing or lifting heavy things for digging in my garden has any body come across any thing similar as its driving me mad, I have had to stop using the keyboard for work now and they are not happy. I have been on very strong pain killers for 5 years and would really like to get this resolved as I feel that at 36 if it carrys on getting worse as it has been Im not sure what Im going to do. Any advise would be gratefully received.
