My neck started hurting and then my right shoulder starting getting inflamed, after a while it started radiating down my arm to my hand. My hand & wrist would become numb and cold at the same time (feels like when your outside in the 0 temp and come in and run hot water over your hands). My hand will swell at night waking me up. The pain radiates from my neck to my wrist 24/7. This has been going on for 2 years now. Not once have I asked for pain med's because I am afraid I will get addicted. Anyway after Xrays. 3 MRI's. 2 nerve conduction test. 3 cervical epidurals, 1 cortisone shot in wrist, 3 cortisone shots in shoulder, physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractor, muscle relaxers, and deep tissue massages still hurting just as bad and the doctors are clueless. Just when back to family doctor and he said "what do you want me to do". When you have the doctor saying that after the 7 different ones that he has sent me to I feel hopeless. Anybody else having the same problems?
