My wife has been complaining of arm numbness for several month and the doctor did not offer any advice but she just reminded me the other night that she was given a couple injections about 6 months ago in that arm.

I read on the net that injections can cause arm numbness. We have a doctor appt scheduled.

We dont communicate real well as she speaks Spanish and I am learning.

What might our course of treatment be? The chiroprator or physical therapy? They all get so expensive even with insurance.

Could we be looking at permanent nerve damage?
