Evaluate Neck: If you are not improving have your doctor order a cervical spine mri. Many times a herniated disc in the neck can cause arm pain especially if you have not improved with the medications and physical therapy. If it is a herniated disc you may need evaluation from a spine specialist to determine what other options might be needed (injections, surgery, etc) to help reduce pain. ...Read more

I am having numbness on the left side of my head. It feels like the left side is sleep. What could be causing this?
Likely not serious: Most causes of head numbness, as contrasted to facial numbness, are benign. Commonest causes are compression/irritation of occipital nerve (sensory nerve to scalp only) often secondary to neck spasm or upper neck arthritis. Other common causes are vascular headaches (typically migraine). Facial numbness can be a symptom of actual or impending stroke. ...Read more
Just recently this morning got up and feel numbness on top left side of my head, and has not gone away. I've been taking verapamil since 2004. Thanks?
Probably benign: Most likely your left occipital nerve to the back of your head isn't working well, usually temporary, verapamil, occasionally used for migraine or migraine variant, has nothing to do with your symptoms. If you have a history of neck problems, occipital neuralgia is frequently associated. If you are having headache, this may still be true but other things would need to be considered also. ...Read more

These symptoms may not make sense to most practitioners, but may be the earliest unexplained signs of worrisome conditions like transverse myelitis or multiple sclerosis.

Many a person with these diagnoses have initially been labeled: "crazy". ...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

Pressure: This is most likely positional, temporary and due to pressure on the superficial nerves of your scalp and has nothing to do with any brain pathology especially if you don't have this symptom any other time.

Unclear: Since you are being treated for a sinus infection situation is more complex. Pay attention to what part of right head goes numb. Nerves to anterior skull are different from nerves to posterior skull. The fact that you are young and symptoms are on opposite sides of head makes possibility of concerning illness less. Stress can cause non-specific, wierd symptoms; but caution when infection. ...Read more
