I've been feeling nerve pain in my left arm up thru the left side of my neck, passed my ear and into my head, I feel the left side "throbbing" and some numbness. I feel the same things on my right side as well, but not as much. I was in a drunk driving accident at 3 yrs. of age and had my head smashed into on the left side and sustained a brain injury, could it be possible that I would have problems with that now? My injury was in 1971. I have a newer injuries called Thoracic Kyphosis Acquired, sprained knee, pinched nerves, and I think TMJ [if that's an injury].
Are you certain it is nerve pain? How long have you had it? On the 1-10 scale, how severe is the pain? Do you find it harder to breathe? My concern is that your symptoms could be from your heart. Pain in your arm, neck, throbbing, numbness, radiating to the right side --- You don't have to have pain in your chest with a heart attack. Have you checked your BP? There is no way for any of us on DC to tell for sure whether it is your heart or a pinched nerve, herniated disc, etc. For safety's sake, you need to go to the ER to be checked. Please don't wait. I'm concerned about you.
