Question: Nerve problems effecting both arms?


 ajleibow1 - Sun Dec 09, 2007 8:16 am

I am 27, M, no real medical history (I had a hernia once).

For 6 week I have had a dull soreness in my upper arms, armpit, chest. It isnt very painful, but just a dullness/soreness. IT is never in all places at once. The soreness moves around. some days it is in my left arm and everything else feels 100% fine. sometimes in my left armpit and everything else fine. Then sometimes in my right arm or armpit and the left side is fine!! ocassioanly at the end of a breathe I feel it in my sternum area. I also get some upper back pains. NO lumps that I feel. the pain/soreness isnt extreme - doesnt wake me up. Generally lasts for a few hours at a time.
I am generally in good shape.

I went to my GP. He did blood tests, EKG. I am scheduled for a stres test, but nothing has come up abnormal. HE thinks it just skeletal/muscular. But it has continued for 6 weeks!

I have also felt pins and needles in my hands occasionally, sometime when im sleeping i awake from that.

Any help would be appreciated.

User avatar Hello Ajleibow1,

I would recommend you see a neurologist for further evaluation of this. The symptoms you are describing may be due to a herniated disk or other neurological problem.

Musculoskeletal problems could potentially cause this as well. The tingling makes me thing that the nerves are involved somehow, though.

Follow up with your doctor is important.

Best wishes.
