and when it wakes me up strong tingly painmy hands swell up to where they feel like they are going to fall off. i also use a tens unit, the pain is getting worse its hard to get out of bed, one doctor said it could be a pinch nerve down my spine ,its getting worst what do i do
If it is a pinched spinal nerve, it would probably be smart to get an MRI or some sort of test, like an EMG (not to be confused with EKG) to test for nerve damage. Spinal nerve roots (the beginning of each of the nerves that leaves the spinal cord) being pinched over long stretches of time can cause permanent nerve damage.
