Pinched Nerve In Shoulder
February 07, 2011
Was very interested to read your story as I have had the same experience.
Fourteen years ago after surgery to remove an ovarian cyst I experienced a severe migraine whilst in recovery. After that I lost strength in the ‘pointer’ finger of my left hand – I couldn’t spray my deodorant. When I mentioned this to my surgeon he didn’t seem to think there was any connection.
Over the next seven years the muscle in my left hand wasted away then, when I became pregnant the doc said I had carpal tunnel. A specialist said it wasn’t carpal tunnel and I was sent to a neurologist for testing. (Horrible!) He said I “probably” had a pinched nerve in my shoulder and said I could have surgery to prevent further damage although it would not help the damage that was already done.
Just recently I have noticed further weakening in my ring finger and would like to try the exercises you mention.
Can you describe the exercises or do I need to see a physio?
