Can brachial neuritis cause tremors in the upper body and tingling in the hands? What's the cause? Had a neg brain, neck, and back MRI.

Can brachial neuritis cause tremors in the upper body and tingling in the hands? What's the cause? Had a neg brain, neck, and back MRI.

Response: Brachial neuritis causes fairly intense pain, and would be unlikely to cause tremors, but hyperthyroidism, some medications, recreational drugs, and heredofamilial essential tremors might be far better explanations. See a local neurologist.

I've been having tremor in my upper body and tingling in hands and feet. How rare is a spinal tumor? Had neg brain MRI and cts last year.

Very low:): With negative brain MRI, you should feel relaxed to have ruled out serious conditions like MS or any brain pathology. Most likely cause of your upper body tingling would likely be nerve compression in upper spine, which would require physical therapy. To confirm diagnosis, have your doctor order a spinal MRI.

Why is it when the massage therapist massages my upper body I get goosebumps/tingling in my legs? And why r we suppose to drink water post massage

Possibly: Not certain about goosebumps, though could be autonomic response. If tingling in legs with work on neck and arms, then check out if any compression in the neck or upper spine. As to the water, your connective tissues, fat and muscle store lots of things that your body has to process when mobilized by massage. Hydration helps.

Numbness/tingling in middle n upper back that comes and goes. No pain. More prominent after doing upper body workout. Any stretches I can do to help?

Probably okay: Need to see a physician to be sure nothing else going on but most likely no concern. What type of exercise causes it? Does it happen mostly when doing work lying on a bench or sitting against a hard seatback? Any tingling "numbness" in arms? Too many questions to address this problem in this forum.
