    Numbness in right side of face, weak right arm, pain in right neck
    An_253956 posted:
    I have had this issue for several years where the right side of my face feels like I just came from the dentist after having it frozen. It feels numb, sometime more numb than others but the feeling is always present. My right arm also feels, *weak* and again, sometimes more weak than others.

    This all seems to emanate from my neck, where it feels like someone is pushing their elbow into the back side of head on the right side, near the neck.

    I've had two MRI's and an EMG nerve study on the arms, doc's say I'm fine!! It;s not excruciating pain but it does wear me down throughout the course of the day.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
