Double crush

The doctor thinks the pain is coming from a pinched nerve in my neck. He said carpal tunnel stops about mid-way up the arm and doesn't radiate to the shoulder like mine. He touched a spot on my neck and I almost came up out of the chair it hurt so bad.


He gave me some neck exercises to do for the next few weeks. He said if it isn't better after the holidays to give him a call and he'll do an MRI on my wrist, arm, and neck to look at the nerves.

I asked him if there was a possibility I could have a pinched nerve and carpal tunnel. He said "Yes. You may have what we call a Double Crush."

Sounds lovely, huh?

I'm going to start those exercises tonight, and also make an appointment with a chiropractor to see if they could possibly work out the issues with my neck. At least things are happening... slowly, but happening.

I love my chiropractor he's kept me away from any types of surgery. Yeah I have issues with my entire spine and my joints, and he works on it all. If you find a good one, you will be amazed.

Good luck at the "chiro". I used to get diathermy threatment. It was the best. Not many DC's use that treatment anymore.
You have to get better!. If you can't type you can't blog!!!

My chiro passed away years ago, but he could work miracles as I had back trouble. Best of luck in finding the right one to help you.

We'll at least you have a diagnosis. Hopefully, that will lead to some relief.
