I am getting weird nerve pain into my left arm and hand... pinky almost goes numb. Had ortho check it out and said my elbow is not causing it.
Thinking it may be stemming from my neck / posture - I got injured and surgery on collar bone a long time ago and I have been babying my left side ever since because the surgeon I think made me worse and my pisture has suffered...
But, maybe it is from RA? Seeing if anyone else has had this? Or know anything that could help take the pain / weird felling away.

Hi everyone, I have been getting acupuncture for this nerve pain and it seems to be helping. I just wanted to share!

Thank you for sharing @rtr097u1. What part of the body are they treating acupuncture wise - as in where are they placing the needles? Maybe this and your feedback can help others.

I have nerve pain that begins at upper rear neck and over head to behind the left eye. Sometimes the right eye. Mostly the left and feels like a knife is stuck in there. Horrible pain. Only migraine pills help.
