Pain in neck to fingertips

Post by fgarcia » Mon Nov 13, 2006 1:17 pm

Hi I am new and just ordered e-book.

I had trouble downloading and sent email to webmaster.

My scenario is this:

Nerve pain starts at neck across scapula then nesting to:
Lats, tricep, elbow, forearm top of hand into fingertips.

Years ago I was mowing lawn and sneezed, I heard a tear noise
and it has been down hill from there with periodic bouts with this
pain traveling down my right arm.

Please help.

Hi Frank

It's been a couple weeks since you downloaded the e-books. Wondering if you've been able to do the RYB upper-body exercises and seen any improvement :?:

It's a good sign that you are experiencing no numbness, tingling ... "just" pain; means you should be able to at least begin the exercises.

Hi SamIam,

What you're describing sounds like Radiculopathy. It is the upper body version of sciatica. In a nutshell, it is when a nerve in your neck becomes pinched causing strange pain, numbness and/or weakness in other parts of your body ... typically the arm and shoulder.

I'm not a doctor, but that is what it sounds like to me. If you haven't already done so, you should see a medical doctor and get a complete physical exam and an accurate medical diagnosis to really determine what is going on.

If it turns out not to be a serious medical condition, the doctor will probably recommend (or at least agree to) a physical therapy program to rebuild your neck.

If that is the case, you might be interested in Dean's book on the subject. It is one of the better home exercise programs out there and a perfect companion to any professional therapy program your doctor or therapist would prescribe.

Let us know what you find out,
