Not worrisome: In and of itself, this is not too worrisome - probably you had your head angled in a way that a nerve root in your cervical spine became briefly compressed.

I saw a neurologist, he did electric shock in my lymphadema arm, and wanted to put needles in to check neck for ddd I stopped him, was I right to do so?
Depends?: The "shocks" will allow on to determine if there is any damage of nerve in the arm. The needle assess nerve activity to the muscles. If all of the muscles in a myotome are abnormal, that is, they all share a common nerve root, then we know that nerve root is dysfunction and there may be a problem at the level of the neck (radiculopathy). ...Read more
Numbness in my heals on my feet, numbness/tingling in my thumbs and electric shock sensation in my arm. What is it?
Without knowing: Details about you as a patient its tough to give a definitive answer. The first thought that comes to my mind is neuropathy.

Nerve compression causing these type of symptoms are a possibility though not as likely.... ...Read more

You may not need anything but a Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack, but get checked to be sure. ...Read more

At high energy levels, the whole muscle group will contract. Excessive energy will damage the muscle and release proteins that can cause kidney failure. ...Read more
