C5 and c6 syndrom relieving numbness and tingling
I have read your Back Suffer's Bible and had great results following your exercise program to relieve upper back pain and soreness.
I want to know whether you would be able to help me treat my increasingly annoying symptoms of "C5 and C6 syndrome" which was diagnosed last year by a neurologist. I have pretty severe numbness in some of the fingers of my left hand every morning when I wake and at other times throughout the day (like now typing this). I also have occasional irritating tingling-burning sensation across the right side of my back in the area below the shoulder blade and general weakness in my left and and hand. Occasionally I also feel shoulder pain and pain in my forearm, although rowing regularly seems to have eased these last two.
I did not find these symptoms mentioned in the Back Sufferer's Bible and feel that the exercises I am doing which have helped me with the upper back pain have not had an impact on the numbness and tingling.
I do rocking the knees, rolling along the spine, reverse curl ups, back block routine (block under lower back and then move to under thorax), floor twists and squatting. Normally I do these about 2x a week. I also row twice a week and take frequent hilly walks. I did 4 or 5 sessions a week from November 2011 until I started rowing in September 2012. I am 52 and in excellent health.
Can you let me know whether you think you can help me, and perhaps suggest what you think could be a good way forward. I would be happy to come and see you in London if you thought this would help me. Please let me know.
With very many thanks,
