From time to time I'll get a pinched nerve in my back (I have one right now). It'll make it difficult to move and a pain in the ass to get a good night sleep. Usually it's caused by a knot, so a massage generally relaxes the tension. The one I have now actually starts all the way at my shoulder and I'm getting pain all the way down to my leg. Anyone else deal with this constant problem? A new one I'm dealing with is a pinched nerve in my arm. It's causing numbness in my pinky and ring finger. Apparently this condition is like Carpal Tunnel, but with a different nerve. I'm hoping this works itself out with some home remedies, because just like Carpal Tunnel, it can require surgery. It's also annoying as hell because it feels like I hit my funny bone 24/7 and my grip strength is dramatically reduced.
