When I first injured my lower back, my hands would go numb, esp my left one, and 2 of my fingers turned white and numb periodically.
On and off it has bothered me thru this ordeal, but due to the severity of my back injury, I rarely complained about it, dr appointment was always quick and covered my severe back injury.
Yesterday and today my arms and my left hand are really bothering me again, what could this be?
I have been mainly bedridden since injury 9 months+ ago, and on occassion haveto put my hand behind my back to ease the pain and it helps position my spine better for the are that hurts above where my surgeries were.
I have complained of higher back pain, but even in my MRI nothing is notably shown as a problem for my higher lumbar/no added bulges or hernations,I dont know about my lower throacic or my neck. I can't even let someone touch near my shoulder blades as the muscles are killing me just to be slightly pressed on.
What do you think this is? Anyone have similar type sensations? Even when I use my laptop my hand starts to hurt and go numb sometimes. My lower back outweighs all of this of course, but when I am at rest and the nerve pain subsides some from my legs, it catches my attention that this is going on still.
