I have persistent   burning pain,  weeknes, tingling sensation in my arms and fingers.

Eval.: Bilateral paresthesias with weakness requires emg/ncv of the upper extremities. I would also obtain MRI of cervical spine to rule out hnp or cord compression. Cxr is useful .

I've been experiencing a feeling of something stuck in my back. Stinging pain in left shoulder and ache in left arm going down to hands.

Sciatica : You may have a condition called sciatica which occurs when the nerve going to your leg is pinched as it comes out of the spine to give the pain down the leg and back. Have your primary care doctor check it out to make sure your leg muscles are not getting weaker because of the nerve problem. This doctor can refer you to the appropriate specialist you need to see.

Sides/back of neck hurt on/off. I get brief shooting burning pain in my head and ears. Shoulders and upper back sore to.Worse in the morning.Any idea?

Many possibilities: You are likely to be holding a lot of tension in your upper back and neck muscles. The question is why? At your age I would hope you could find more than symptomatic care. Posture, situational stressors, trauma, visual concerns, poor sleep, depression, toxins, etc. A good clinician can help you sort through the possibilities while providing symptomatic relief. All the best. ...Read more

Past 2 months pain in left side of head base neck. Now I have random pain and numbness/tingling in arms and legs. What's wrong? Symptoms mimic MS

Explanation: Although MS can be a tough diagnosis due to vague symptoms, I would doubt your problems are caused by MS. Suggest you have an MRI of your neck, as that is most likely the anatomic location for your issues. Your head/neck pain could be c/w Occipital Neuralgia, and could consider problems in arms/legs due to peripheral neuropathy if neck films are benign. ...Read more

Isnt a TSH of 0.99 a little bit low although it is in range?And is a burning feeling in the thyroid area a common symptom in thyroid disorders?

Isnt a TSH of 0.99 a little bit low although it is in range?And is a burning feeling in the thyroid area a common symptom in thyroid disorders?

Doubt thyroid: Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside. A tender thyroid suggests DeQuervain's but burning / paresthesias less so. Look for some other cause of your illness. I believe we've met before -- Remember Sjogren's and Hashimoto's as causes of CNS vasculitis / myelin loss. Good luck on continuing workup. ...Read more

Sometimes when im working I get a pain like a burning feeling at the top of my back just below my neck. Whats the cause of this?

Strain: Do you work at a desk or on a computer? Do you typically have your head down when you work? This is most likely due to overworked muscles that help suspend your head at the tip of your spine. The human head weighs about 9 pounds(4.5 kg). Those muscles will begin to complain after a while. Periodically stop and stretch, lean your head back and relax. Also change the position of your screen. ...Read more

Hi its to my wife she is suffering from chest burning and had pain in neck and not feeling wel since four days why its so?

Get checked: She needs to get checked to see if this is a heart problem or esophagitis. If the neck pain is in front, it's likely part of the same problem as the chest pain. If neck pain is in the back, it may be an unrelated problem. If the pain is just on one side or the other, it could be she is developing shingles. ...Read more

What could cause a burning flushing feeling up neck to head? My shoulders are also very sore for no known reason.

Muscle spasm : You may have spasm of neck & shoulder muscles, possibly by exercise or work overuse, tension, bad posture, or poor sleep. Start with therapeutic massage focused on those areas; see if that helps. If uncomfortable sensations (lightening-like or burning for example) shoot from your neck & shoulder to fingers, then you may have nerve injury, which calls for clinician examination. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Neck pain on left side. I also get a pinching feeling in the same side of head and the back of head starts burning?

Neck pain on left side. I also get a pinching feeling in the same side of head and the back of head starts burning?

May be pinched nerve: If the pain that you feel is worse with bending your neck to the side and slightly backwards, it may be a pinched nerve (radiculopathy). The symptoms usually radiate to the arm or shoulder under those circumstances. If your symptoms are slightly better in that same position, then it could be myofascial pain or spasm. These indicators are not absolute but should be evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more
