I have r.S.I. For 7yrs & I have recurring pain & tightness in both upper arms/shoulders & also recurring carpal tunnel symptoms. Will it ever heal?

I have r.S.I. For 7yrs & I have recurring pain & tightness in both upper arms/shoulders & also recurring carpal tunnel symptoms. Will it ever heal?

RSI can improve: Repetitive stress injury can take a long time to heal. Improper ergonomics and incorrect posture can be a contributing factor as well. Best treatment is appropriate stretching and strengthening as directed by a physical therapist, being mindful of posture, as well as taking breaks from repetitive tasks. Consider having your neck evaluated as a pinched nerve can cause similar pain complaints. ...Read more

I've had rsi for 7yrs. I have pain & tightness with movement in upper arms/shoulders & recurring carpal tunnel symptoms. Will I heal eventually?

Possibly: Rsi or repetitive stress needs to be treated comprehensively, that is you need to focus globally i.E not just on specific components of the rsi like cts but on overall use of your body, everything from neck and shoulder posture, sitting positions, breathing and stress relief etc. And not just at work, also at home, when driving, hobbies, sports etc. Phase 1 is improvement, phase 2 prevention. ...Read more

Burning sensation on skin of upper arm/shoulder for 2 weeks, but nothing there, skin looks completely normal. No rashes or other symptoms. What is it?

Burning sensation on skin of upper arm/shoulder for 2 weeks, but nothing there, skin looks completely normal. No rashes or other symptoms. What is it?

Neuropathy: Sounds like a nerve problem, so we'd call it neuropathy. It can be caused by anything damaging a nerve. Shingles or herpes can do this, but if it has been going on for 2 weeks I'd expect there to be spots or bumps or something showing on the skin by now. It can also be caused by your immune system attacking the nerve or by the nerve being pinched in your spine or elsewhere. See your doc for help. ...Read more

1wk of mild constant upper arm pain w/ spontaneous bouts of intense stabbing/stinging pain. Not affected by movement/touch. No trauma. No other symptom.?

Varies: Multiple potential causes, I would not hesitate to be seen. A "pinched nerve" in the neck, otherwise known as a cervical radiculopathy, can cause similar symptoms as what you are describing although there are other possibilities as well. A simple physical exam could go a long way to determine the likely cause. ...Read more

Dr says I have a shoulder impingment. My symptoms are dull upper arm discomfort, specific neck pain radiating into my ear. Is this normal?

Seems likely: Impingement can cause many symptoms but usually with pain somewhere. It is usually in the shoulder itself, but can radiate down the arm or to the neck. Dull discomfort may be your pain. The other thing that can cause such pain can be in the neck itself. If your doctors feels it is shoulder, I assume s/he checked your neck out too. ...Read more
