I've been out of the country the last week and am not seeing a specialist until this Friday so I need some advice from anyone with experience. I strained my back and chipped my elbow several weeks ago (about 3) -since then my back has healed and the spot on the elbow is fine. -but in the last 2 weeks I've got nerve pain/numbness aching from my shoulder to my fingers -mostly in the upper arm. This aching is accompanied by a sharp pain when I move my neck in certain places. So naturally I'm thinking a pinched nerve or perhaps a cubital or tunnel nerve problem. I need to figure out how to sleep the next 4 nights -drugs are doing nothing and I can't seem to find a position to rest the arm that works. Any experience with this?
