I am 42 yrs old and about 2 months ago I startes getting pain in my neck on the left side. I just thought I slept wrong that night. Over the last 2 months the pain which I can describe as numbness and like someone is shoving needles in my arm, has traveled all the way down my arm to my hand, mainly my thumb and middle finger but sometimes I noticed lately my palm part of the hand. The worse part is the “needle poking” / pain in my upper arm. It has got worse over the last 2 months. I cant turn my head, bend my head down, etc without the pain being severe in my upper mid arm only located on the outer part of my bicep which travels downwards which leads instantly to my hand going numb. I am not one for but it is getting a little annoying and unsure if I need to see a Dr. I was tested about a yr ago for Carpel Tunnel in both hands which the Dr stated all was fine.
Hello Dr. Chris Two weeks ago I broke my fall with my right hand. Immediately after, I felt pain and within a hour my hand started to swell. The pain was unbearable, but I stuck with the stay home method of RICE. I also used A wrist splint as well to keep it stable. And after the first three days, I began using the heating method. Two weeks has passed, and my hand is still swollen (not as much as when it first occurred). But, there is still pain where my middle and ring finger knuckles are, and when I press into the palm of my hand towards the location of my ring and middle fingers, there is pain there as well. I took the splint off due to discomfort after the first 9 days or so. I am able to bend my wrist with no pain, but when I bend my fingers, there is a clicking in my middle finger. I am unaware if this is normal or not during the healing process.
Despite hitting a career-high 46 home runs in 1998, Canseco drew minimal attention in the free agent market. In 1999, he signed a three-year contract with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays . The contract included a clause stating that if Canseco were to be elected to the Hall of Fame he would be depicted as a member of the Devil Rays. That year he took the American League by storm, hitting 10 home runs in April, and leading the AL with 31 by the All-Star break (including number 400 for his career against Toronto's Kelvim Escobar). On pace for 60+ homers for the season, he was voted to the AL All-Star team as the DH, making his first All Star selection in 7 years. However, he injured his back days before the mid-summer classic and missed the game, as well as the Home Run Derby in Fenway Park. He finished the season with 34 home runs for the 1999 season.
