Looking for some advice on what could be the problem here.
I've had pain in my arm starting at the shoulder down to my fingers for about 9 weeks. Also stiff painful neck. Always when I get up from resting, sleeping, reading, watching tv etc... the arm is tingling and nerve pain for about an hour. Very sensitive to any movement. Simple things like washing my hair is difficult/painful.
No signs of improvement. No event that started this. But some history:
- did a fair bit of swimming about 6-9 months back and noticed my joints were really noisy/grinding/clicking as I swam.
- 6 months back I was pulling a wagon of newspapers for my boy (with the same arm). The next morning I had terrible pain in my back between the shoulder blades. Felt like I was hit by a car. Was given Naproxen/Tylenol/Cyclobenzaprine and 6 weeks later that resolved itself.
- Since then I had been doing a lot of walking for exercise (all I could really do) and that's when I noticed the swinging of my arms as I walked gradually was hurting my shoulder more and more.
Cannot sleep on my stomach at all, and side sleeping is moderately painful with me usually waking up by 4:30am
46yrs old, tried PT, acupuncture and now chiro.
Appreciate any suggestions on what this might be so I can seek proper treatment. Thanks.
