I'm new to the forum, so please be patient with me. I have a long story, but maybe someone can help. I've had Psoriatic Arthritis for years. I have had neck problems for over 20 years. Most recently, I've had problem with constant numbness of my left pointer finger. When I move the left arm in any fashion, I get a "contraction" in my underarm and at the same I feel pins and needles climb up my finger/palm/hand/forearm and into the mid section of my bicep. As it climbs it switches to the outter side of the arm, but starts at the inner. My doc couldn't get a pulse on my left side and thought it was Thoratic Outlet Syndrome. Today, another Doc. did an EMG which he said was normal...no nerve damage and it might be from arthritis in my neck. My neck doesn't hurt at all (and I know neck pain). He wants me to ice it 5x a day for a month or two and if no better, then I should get a neck MRI. I'm not satisifed with this opinion and am certain more is going on here. Now I'm feeling like the Doc. thinks I'm goofy or something. Anyone have any opinions here? Thank you for your helpReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
