    The past two or three days ive been getting a pain in my shoulder which is now creeping down my arm. At first it was just my left arm but now my right shoulder hurts at time as well.

    My left arm feels odd today. Sorta like im going to get pins and needles or that its going numb. Feels dead heavy. I get this normally if im going to have a bad migraine but I haven't progressed to having a migraine yet and normally would of had it started by now.

    Anyone shed any light on this or is it just cause ive had cold??? starting to annoy me now like!!

    OMG you've described the exact same thing i have. It's really wierd feeling, kinda like someone has punched me in the arm and it's gone like a dead arm but doesn't really hurt. Feels kinda heavy aswell and like my hand isn't responding properly when moving it.

    I looked into carpal tunnel but don't think it's that as that is usually only in your hand and not in your upper arm. I've asked both my midwife and my doctor and they both just looked at me kinda wierdly and said it's probably a trapped nerve!!

    Can't say i have much confidence in that diagnosis but they didn't seem overly concerned anyway!!

    :hug:

    Hi MrsB - sent you a quick not in my other post - good to see you again :)
    Had this in my leg the last few days... just thought it may be lack of movement as it was in bed or if I've been sat for a while. Not sure if it's the same thing?

    I had this in my leg and it was a trapped siatic nearve, which was caused they think by the position of the baby, but not sure if that could effect your shoulders and arms??


    hope you girls feel better soon xx :hug: :hug:

    ive had the same kind of feeling in my left leg the last couple of days,not sure if bubs is laid on a nerve or something? :think:
    i dont think the arm problems are carpal tunnel as i have this and it only affects my fingers and wrists. :?

    Im at the midwife on tuesday anyway so will mention it to her to be on the safe side. Its worse when I first get up so maybe its just from lying down over night etc and circulation?!?!
