Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Median nerve is formed at the the beginning of forearm by the union of nerve branches from the 5th, 6th and 8th Cervical spine nerve roots and 1st thoracic nerve root. Swollen median nerve will be due to the compression at the wrist level. Problem at the neck will not affect the median nerve directly. Median can still get affected from neck problem like herniated cervical spine disc as it is formed from the nerve roots originating there.
