Re: Severe nerve pain & spasticity in pectoral/breast tissue
Hi Doc, thanks for responding. I'm 48 with no history of cardio probs, great cholesterol and good BP. Since last posting, the pain has subsided significantly. I've kept up the ice, muscle relaxants, anti-inflamatory and anti-spasmodics, with pain meds as needed. The extreme lightning electical sensation has given way to a more tolerable muscle spasm/pain, when it occurs. I have learned what moves not to make, so I can mostly avoid it. I am stretching more and more, and hope to regain my typical range of motion.
I am going to see my neurologist anyway, just to be sure. I also have a history of scoliosis, and this is a likely contibutor to the problem.
So glad to have found this site! Thanks!
