Re: Arm and shoulder pain numbness 3 n half years on !!! Panicking !

Hi all been to go today he thinks its carpal tunnel. So will have a read up he mentioned injections and operation but splint to start all sounds a bit scary when told you shouldn't have needles or blood pressure etc from that arm with lymph nodes removed . I thought it might be more trapped nerve so will see rozita x

Hello Rozita,
Had my WLE, chemo rads etc, all nodes removed, 10 years ago and in the last 2 weeks have been getting aches and pains in arm and breast. Not had it for many years until a couple of weeks ago, have been on amitriptyline and now nortriptyline for nerve pain for many years so don't know where this has come from but I do find that the recent hot weather is not helping.
Good idea for you to see GP who could recomend something.

Hi Rozita
sorry to hear about the pain and numbness - I can't help you with this but I'm sure somebody will come along who may be able to help and put your mind at ease. It's good you've made an appointment to see your GP but I know those few days will drag for you. Sending you hugs and good wishes.
