    I have absolutely extremely severe nerve pain. It runs through my back, neck, jaw, shoulders, arms, hands, legs and feet. I look stupid when I’m constantly moving my left foot, neck and hands every second of the day. People think I have turrets syndrome cause of all my movements I do none stop.

      youraj gurung do consult a few doctors before going for surgery. I met at least 8 surgeons/neurosurgeons and everyone recommended surgery..i tried medicines, physiotherapy, etc. and finally when pain was too much for me to handle, i chose surgery..
      so meet a few doctors and then decide.

    • youraj gurung

      thank u freind once again , this world is so selfish then i got u full of kindness . i was expecting al lot from physio theraphy now i would step through surgery……

    • Jagdeep sandhu

      youraj gurung it worked. i am living pain free. i used to go to gym 6 days a week. now i am going to gym again after 2 years. i lift light now but its better than no lifting at all…and i don’t regret having surgery if you want to know that.
      my grip strength has returned and so has muscle size in affected arm..

    • youraj gurung

      Jagdeep sandhu thank u for ur kindness . so u mean even medical surgery doesnt worked at all.

    • Jagdeep sandhu

      youraj gurung i had epidural injections and then surgery for my neck. was on medication for 3 months but nothing worked. Surgery relieved nerve pain in 3 days and all pain disappeared eventually. I have titanium implant in neck now. Been 2 years but neck still gets stiff sometimes. but its never as bad as the nerve pain i had. if you go for surgery, choose a good doctor.

    I think I’ve got a pinched nerve in the forearm. It only hurt when doing bicep curls. Do you think I can still workout, if I just stop training biceps?

    I donated blood at a local drive 6 weeks ago and developed nerve pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, and aching that started in my hand and has spread into my arm and up to my shoulder. I’m scheduled to have an EMG and NCS in a few weeks but in the meantime I’m noticing worse symptoms with my most recent one my arm and hand feeling cold to touch. My primary Dr hasn’t been very helpful as honestly I don’t think she has ever dealt with a case such as mine. I’m doing occupational therapy. 2 days weekly and this seems to help reduce the symptoms. I don’t know how it can be possible to have a pinched nerve just from donating. I know my case is very rare and unfortunate but at the same time I’ve learned SO much about nerves and how they work. Thanks for your video. Was helpful.
