Arm Pain

Postby kjle » Wed Sep 20, 2006 9:52 am

Okay, so I had a car accident about a month ago. Fairly high impact, I've had headaches every night since, and my back has been out. I have been to Doctors and Chiropractors regularly since the accident. Nothing has really concerned me up until yesterday. I suddenly (overnight) got a very strange tingly feeling in my arm. It feels like a dull, constant numbness. And my arm, when touched, feels like it would, as if it was all cut up, or scratched. There is no marks on the skin, or redness.

I'm young (18 ), active (not so much recently because of accident), and pretty healthy. I figure that this could be a pinched nerve, but I'm not sure why it would come up so quickly. I know left arm numbness and tight chest can be a sign of angina pectoris, caused by a possible blood clot. But I doubt it is that serious. Anyways I'm asking for any possible suggestions as to what it could be. I am going to the doctor this week, for other things, and I'll ask him about this, but I'm just trying to get some insight before then.

Thank-you,

Kyle

^ I have had same thing recently from motorcycle accident 1 month ago. I had feeling kpoehlke describes but in my leg. The doctor said it was traumatic injury to nerves at my hip. He said it should disappear soon unless there is real damage done.
The hand of God may well be all around us, but it is not, nor can it be, the task of science to dust for fingerprints.
