Time to see a MD: Dear chatty,

given your symptoms, it is time for you to be appropriately evaluated preferably by a specialist (such as myself) in sports medicine, orthopaedics, neuro, etc. When we hear numbness, tingling and burning, we know there are many possible causes including nerve impingement-whether it is due to a 'bulging disc' or foraminal stenosis, etc. You require a thorough examination and work up.

I am in p.T for my neck pain. I have numbness and tingling and burning in the neck when air gets on it. Is this a nerve thing and what can be done it?

I am in p.T for my neck pain. I have numbness and tingling and burning in the neck when air gets on it. Is this a nerve thing and what can be done it?
