Hello doctor, sorry for disturbing me, I want to ask, my shoulders to hands and palms and fingers to my right often hurt, so sometimes I can’t lift, the pain goes away if my hands are bent, but I find it difficult to do activities, the pain is only in the shoulder palms to fingers, what causes it and what is the solution? Thank you 🙏
Hello Trisna, Thank you for the question.
Pain that only affects the shoulder, arm and right hand can be caused by:
injury to the brachial nerve that extends from the neck to the arm
cervical radiculopathy for example due to a herniated nucleus pulposus in the neck or narrowing of the vertebrae in the neck area
To determine the cause of this complaint, you should first consult a neurologist. In addition to asking further about your complaint, the doctor needs to examine you. The doctor will also suggest further tests such as X-rays of the spine, CT sanitation, or MRI to find out the cause. After knowing the cause, the doctor will determine the best treatment for you according to your condition.
Meanwhile, you can try applying warm compresses to the sore area or taking paracetamol if the pain gets worse. Avoid activities that involve movement of the shoulders and hands.
