Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Yes,it is possible that the episodes you are having could be stress induced - although I have had surgery on my neck for symptoms of numbness and tingling in my hand and arm. I am on medications every day because of the resulting pain. It could also be (if there has been no fall or accident), that you are experiencing some "pinched nerves" in your cervical spine area. If the symptoms begin to worsen or get closer together, or if you develop any "burning" pains anywhere...then you should see your doctor for an MRI, and a referral to a neurologist asap. This is something you don't want to mess with. I waited to long, and now I will have the numbness and tingling, and burning for the rest of my life. Believe me, you don't want to live this way if you don't have to. The MRI is such a easy and pain free test to undergo to be able to tell the doctors so much. I also had a mylegram done, that makes it easier to see if there might be any stenosis or pinched nerves being involved. I suggest that you tell your doctor everything you have told me...and see what he thinks. If there is a problem...everyday you wait could be disastrous in the end. Just remember, "no question is a dumb question". and of course...Better safe than sorry!!!
Good luck to you, and don't wait to long
