    I had a car accident about 2.5 yrs ago. I was hit on the passenger side when someone didnt see me and ran through a stop sign, My car almost flipped- I was doing about 55 mph… I dont know if any of that is relevant.

    But I have YET to get any kind of diagnosis or for that matter any dr that hasnt blown me off. About a month after the accident I found out I was pregnant- I hadnt had any MRIs or CTs done yet, and since I was pregnant they couldnt be done. I spent all of my pregnancy miserable, with pain in my spine between my shoulder blades, pain in my neck, Pain in my right shoulder, pain in my elbow and wrist- Numbness tingly ness in my wrist and hand, weakness and loss of sensation all in my right hand. I had an MRI after the baby was born and I have yet to have anyone say other than my nerves are bruised.

    This has been so frustrating for me, I live everyday in pain with simple tasks and my drs telling me Im fine. Well obviously I am not fine. I am going to a new dr tomorrow and I am praying that he can help me.

    Im attaching a screen shot of my MRI I dont know if that will help at all but I am frustrated and want to enjoy my life with my children & not be in pain!! obviously im not a dr but to me it looks normal. All my symptoms (in my obviously non educated opinion!) Point to having pinched nerves C-4 C-5 area?????

    This forum at this time is picture free. You can send your DVD/CD of images to my office if you choose.

    Pregnancy is not a contraindication to MRI imaging according to my radiologists.

    Arm symptoms are commonly derived from nerve compression in the neck but that is not the only place that nerves can become entrapped. Thoracic outlet syndrome, cubital tunnel, carpel tunnel, tunnel of Guyon, radial tunnel entrapments are all possible.

    You need an experienced, meticulous diagnostician to evaluate you and determine what is causing your pain.
