I've got some sort of problem with my right arm. Actually, I think the problem originates in the trapezeus-scapula area, pinched nerves (?), sending pain down my arm and causing tingling and numbness in my index and middle fingers. I might have slept on it wrong or it could be a workout injury that crept up on me. It's been ongoing for several days, so I'm limiting use of my arm.
My right shoulder is cursed. As a kid, I would get sudden, excruciating spasms in my shoulder. It would lock up for what seemed like an eternity but it was probably no more than 30 seconds before it would start to release. No cause or explanation was ever found. At 14, I separated my shoulder playing baseball. I got a couple of cortisone shots for that and layed off throwing for over a year. Then, at about 30, I developed a rotator cuff problem. I had images taken at Illinois Masonic while laying on a table as a big camera moved back and forth overhead. They put me in some kind of study comparing imaging methods, so I also underwent a sonogram. The sonogram was memorable because I waited for that in a room with a group of pregnant women. While we were waiting, Jim McMahon (Bears quarterback) came out of the sonogram room. He had a rotator cuff problem at the time. Anyway, they told me that I could have surgery or wait it out. That injury nagged me for about five years. At 40, I suffered a muscle tear in the same shoulder. I was doing squats with heavy weight and I tipped a little to one side and it tore. That hurt. So pinched nerves are just the latest in a decades long saga. I'm hoping this will resolve on its own quickly.
