Often the affected areas becom numb and sometimes painful. This problem is affecting my work. I can no longer spend much time scratching on decs at the same quality, and i'm affraid it's going to cause difficulties with my job a a camera man using the focus and zoom etc. Any ideas/suggestions?

User avatar HI
your doctor might want to refer you to a neurologist , to schedule a SCAN , OR MRI to rule out any spine damage and bone problem.
thank you
