Customer Question

I have been experiencing shooting/pulsating pain in my right hand (pinky side) and up and down my arm. Very stressed lately which is what I've attributed it to but just wondering if it could be something else.

Hello

Yes, it can be a disc problem in the lower cervical spine, pinching a nerve.

You also need to make sure you have no heart disease.
