I get a terrible pain down my left arm and fingers. Not my thumb ever. I have back and neck pain. Especially lower back. Also pain in left underarm where I know some nerves are. Sore and a little swollen. I can't sleep without burning pain. Please help.

  • Thunder - why aren't you seeing a chiropractor or neurologist ?It must be nerve related from your description. You will probably be able to get into a chiropractor with much less waitingBUT.....from your description and my experience as a chiropractor I would not advise getting adjusted quickly. There must be a cause or causes to the problem and these need to be correctly determined before any other action is taken. Ask friends and relatives who they see and who they would recommend you see.

  • Thanks. I have seen a neurologist and have a mri scheduled this week. I went to a chiro for first time last wk. 2 more times this week. Chiro said if mri of neck and head are ok then it could be back or chest and he may help with it. pretty scary at times because my whole body will shake and then arms and stomach go numb. Thanks for the help, its appreciated :)

  • thunder go to www.ahummingbirdsguide.com go to symptoms page then at the bottom of first paragraph there is a highlightd sentence that says 2 page symptom summary...PLEASE write down any other symptoms you are having...it is viral and contagious...If you have several symptoms on the list, please approach Dr. with info...trust me, there are things that probably happen to you all the time and they either seem unrelated or you just blow them off like I did for so long...Good luck...mommy cat
