Hi Everyone, has anyone had fingers go numb (it’s been over a week) along with shoulder pain in armpit? Doc has requested ‘thoracic outlet’ X-ray of chest. Pain is worse like a shooting pain when I bring my shoulder blades together. I’ve noticed in last year or two my rib pain has gotten worse and sometimes stops me in my tracks at work - bit of a worry. Bit concerned what the X-ray might show to be honest!

Good luck on the thoracic outlet x-ray. I wasn't familiar with that so I had to look it up. I hope they figure out whats causing it are able to give you something for the pain.

I don't have nerve problems in my hands but I do have other nerve trouble in the torso and hips. Mine are caused by the narrowing spaces in my spine and they put pressure on the nerves. My symptoms are stinging or pricking pain mostly, and then there are the muscle tension and spasms they cause me. Everybody has different nerve symptoms though. My doctor has me on gabapentin and baclofen for these problems.

Take care,

I get fingers going numb and tingling, at times. Mine tends to be related to the ulnar nerve. I haven't been treated for it, but my rheumy is following it.I hope the x-ray helps pinpoint what's going on.
