Can cervical neck pain and lower back pain symptoms along with numbness in ring and pinky finger on left hand, be an    underlying symtom of something?

Cubital tunnel: Entrapment of the ulnar nerve at the elbow (funny bone) is common. Usually aggravated with bending of elbow: while sleeping, working at desk, driving a car, all of which we tend to flex the elbow and create increased tension on the ulnar nerve.

I have lower back pain on my right and left side& recently have started getting tingling and numbness in my hand and legs and left calf swells somet

Related or unrelated: Low back pain associated with leg pain is common , often associated with nerve compression in the lumbar spine. Calf swelling, if related, is usually related to reduced leg mobility. Numbness in hands as well as legs would not be caused only by nerve compression in your lower spine--so do you have two diseases or only one? See a neurologist. ...Read more

I suffer from daily neck and lower back pain. Lately I notice I shake when doing things. My hands/arms shake when pushing against something. ?

See a neurologist: There could be many reasons for your hands/arms shaking from being deconditioned (i.e. out of shape) to your muscles spasming due to your severe pain which is trying to protect your painful areas of your neck and back. I recommend a face to face evaluation by a physician (such as a neurologist). They may need to send you for other tests such as MRIs if they deem your shaking due to true weakness ...Read more

I have been sick for 9 months. Do I have cidp? Symptoms are: extreme fatigue, numbness/weakness in my legs, arms, hands, feet and lower back pain

I have been sick for 9 months. Do I have cidp? Symptoms are: extreme fatigue, numbness/weakness in my legs, arms, hands, feet and lower back pain

Impossible to say: Unlikely that you have cidp or acute immune polyneuritis, but some of your problems might be due to peripheral nerve issues. An EMG test done expertly could assist. Another question might involve a process such as multiple sclerosis, but that too cannot be confirmed in absence of MRI images. Spinal fluid analysis might be useful. Seek out a neurologist and pin down precise answer. ...Read more

Possible STD: A number of different things can cause your period to be irregular, including being sick with something else. Your symptoms are somewhat concerning. If you have unprotected sex since your last normal menstrual cycle, it would be a good idea to be evaluated for STD, which could certainly cause the symptoms that you are having.
