The doctor took some x-rays, said everything looked normal, prescribed muscle relaxers, heat, and showed me some neck exercises for C8-T1.
hand is still numb
told him about my little research last night...... and I was wondering if my upper back pain and numb hands had anything to do with problems in the C7-T1 area.
He said he thought the hands were controlled by a different area of vertibrae, but he would double check while I was in X-Ray.....
came back, and he said I was right, except it was C8 instead of C7
