Delaying in this: Circumstance isn't advisable. Your symptoms suggest impingement, either through direct nerve compression or swelling around the nerve. In any event, a discussion with your neurologist/neurosurgeon about an epidural steroid (or transforaminal steroid) injection should happen sooner, rather than later. Although a cold, numb foot may be related to other (vascular) problems, nerve problems are primary. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What viruses can cause brachial neuritis? Fever x1 week then left shoulder pain x1 week then left arm weakness. Md believes caused by virus. Agree?
Parsonage Turner: The brachial plexus painful paralysis may not be a direct virus infection of the nerves, but as a consequence of an immune attack. Upper respiratory virus infection - your immune system mounts an attack - and (by accident) attacks molecules in your brachial plexus myelin sheath. ("collateral damage" so to speak.) the condition is called parsonage turner syndrome. Pls discuss with your md. ...Read more

A more unlikely diagnosis could be early shingles if only happening on one side, but your symptoms do sound more like a urinary tract infection or stone. Keep an eye on the area, and keep up with any patterns to the pain. See your doctor if still having problems. ...Read more
