I should add my neck problems started in 2004 after a whiplash injury following a charity parachute jump – probably not my smartest decision. At the time I had severe pain that needed rehab physio to deal with the muscle spasms. Since then I have intermittent pins and needles and numbness in both arms together with episodes of pain. The last episode was a year ago – severe left triceps and scapular / neck pain. Another med (for nerve pain) was added to my cocktail of pain meds which helped a lot. Fast forward to Jan this year and the complete loss of use of my left hand. As an aside having widespread pain from EDS – thoracic pain, lumbar stenosis and severe hip subluxation – it is sometimes difficult to ascertain what is causing what problems / pain.
