Radial Nerve Pain
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
Consider neck issue: While the ulnar nerve can cause pain radiating up the arm, it is more typically associated with pain from the elbow to the hand. One possibility is that you might have a pinched nerve in the neck as well- this can look very similar to an ulnar nerve issue, but is treated differently. ...Read more
Not typically: Ulnar neuropathy is a nerve entrapment at the elbow with typical symptoms of numbness of the small 1 and 1/2 fingers and weakness of the intrinsic hand muscles. Pain in the triceps can be from a herniated disc in the neck at the c7 level. Subluxation of the triceps muscle can mimic both conditions. A good physical exam, complimented by emg/ncs can confirm the diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thumb numbness: Thumb numbness could be a from a "pinched nerve" in your neck, typically the c6 nerve root.

Heel pain: More likely cause is heel spur where achilles tendon attaches to calcaneus (heelbone), especially in women who wear high heels often. But sciatica is also possibility in one who has degeneration in spine. Heel spurs respond to gradual stretching of achilles tendon (i.e. Lower heels on shoes). See neurologist to determine which source is cause of your pain. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Ulnar nerve: We could be a combination of things, it could be irritation of your owner nerve at the elbow and every time you sneeze the jerking motion causes the nerve to be irritated, it is also possible that you could have nerve root compression in the lower cervical spine causing the symptoms due to disk space collapse and irritation of both nerves be due to narrowing of the opening or foramen this will cause irritation and discomfort. Either way in a valuation by your family doctor or orthopedic surgeon may be of benefit to help determine the cause and temporarily anti-inflammatory medications may be a benefit and avoidance of activities that cause the discomfort ...Read more
Location: Pain refers to different areas.Get a more detailed answer ›
Several ways: First line treatment is protecting the nerve from the insult or injury. This may include bracing or padding the elbow. Pt is also effective to treat restriction and inflammation and improve nerve mobility. Injection is another option. Surgery is last but only with confirmed nerve injury through emg/ncs testing. ...Read more
YES: Damage to the nerves that supply the perineum may result in penile numbness. It is well known that bicycle riding, which is an excellent aerobic exercise, may result in penile numbness. This may result from nerve damage or vascular compression resulting arterial insuffiency, swelling and even blood clots. If you're having numbness your pcp may refer you to a urologist & neurolidt for evaluation. ...Read more
Could sharp pain between my shoulder blade and spine be attributed to my brachial plexus injury and suprascapular nerve compression.
Immediately: Ischemia of some of the tissue including he local nerves. There are good collaterals in the arm and forearm. Concern is embolism with branch occlusions. Surgically we take the whole radial, artery out and people do fine if we have tested-allen's test/ and doppler study in advance. Chronically one may have inadequate collateral. Why did it happen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is an aching left arm and left leg a sign of peripheral neuropathy, hiv, carpal tunnel or pinched nerve?
Depends: This can be a systemic disease process (neuropathy, hiv) affecting multiple nerves at once. Carpal tunnel affect the hand specifically, not the arm. You can have two pinched nerves possibly, but one tries to explain symptoms by the most simple explanation. Consider spinal cord issues, which would affect arm and leg simultaneously. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
R arm/shoulder/neck pain ×7yrs. Hand is cold, fingers swollen. Surgeries include : wrist tendon release/bone spur, wrist for torn ligaments & radial nerve release. Zero pain relief. Where to go now?
Radial nerve palsy: Is a condition inwhich the radial nerve ceases to function. It can be temposary if the nerve was just bruised, or it can be permanent if the nerve was irreversably damaged. The radial nerve is responsible for several of the muscles that control the hand and wrist as well as the triceps muscle. The effect of the palsy depends on where the nerve was injured. Everything downstrem will be affected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Unlikely: Emg/ncv studies are diagnostic for nerve pathology or problems but if the nerve is healthy the test will be normal. If the test shows a problem of the radial nerve where the fluid or swelling is you'll only have signs of a radial neuropathy but not know what's causing the swelling, e.g. An x-ray might show pneumonia but not tell you the bug causing it. ...Read more

Occupational med want to put me on gabatentin for my radial nerve in my forearm & i'm1 who doesn't do good on meds! i'm scared, I have bad reaction?
See below: The real question is what you want to do for your problem. My assumption is that this is causing pain. There are no good remedies for nerve problems so if you want relief trying the Gabapentin is reasonable. The side-effect profile for Gabapentin is favorable and most people tolerate it well. ...Read more
Pressure on nerve: The radial nerve forms under the arm and travels along the lower part of the elbow to the lower part of the hand. Falling asleep with arm draped over back of bench, excessive leaning on elbow on hard desk surface, and arthritis of elbow or wrist can all lead to radial nerve palsy. Disease in the neck may cause specific nerve deficits but not radial nerve palsy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
