Customer Question
Hello! I have had some...
Hello! I have had some knots in my shoulder for awhile (I need a massage) and I have let myself get out of shape. My shoulders are already bad - I had surgery on my left in 2012 (open Mumford) and developed frozen shoulder. 2 years ago my right shoulder developed frozen shoulder for no good reason. Last night I was playing with my nieces and nephews (picking them up and dancing around with them) and did a bit of walking. Today my right shoulder is hurting and I have this pins and needles feeling in the backside of my arm, wrist and pinky and ring finger. My right foot was a little tingly too but it has subsided. I’m sure it has something to do with my shoulder, but I also suffer from OCD and get quite paranoid about anything to do with my body and health. Thank you!

Neurologist: Edgar Rubio Villegas, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Dear *****ient. by his shoulder history and recent symptoms is indeed related.
Although they are different limbs they share a unique common origin in the spine.
Because of all the history of your shoulder, it is likely that they have generated alterations in the cervical and lumbar spine (despite having no direct symptoms).
because the symptoms you manifest are due to nerve alterations known as neuropathies, these alterations are due to nerve irritation by compression at the spinal level or muscle contractures that produce the symptoms you manifest.
In your case, I suggest an MRI of the cervical and lumbar spine.
It is likely that depending on the outcome you will initiate rehabilitation to strengthen the spine and improve nerve conduction.
It is advisable to start with medication to improve nerve conduction such as Pregabalin neuromodulators, but for this purpose, a neurological examination of the limb and the requested studies should be performed.
