    Pain in Left Arm

    All day today I have been having this tight squeezing feeling in my upper Left arm just below my shoulder. For the last 10+yrs when ever I rotate my arm my shoulder pops and clicks. But today I feel as if something is just squeezing my arm and pinching it. Kinda like a blood pressure cuff when it get s real tight on your arm. I have almost no strentgh in my arm. When I squeeze my hand it's very weak. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what this may be.
    Iím not insane ó my mother had me tested.

    Did you ever figure out what the popping and clicking was?

    I googled it (I'm a googler) and from what I read, one possiblitly is onset of ALS. I am no physician so go get checked by one definately.

    When I worked retail I had to lift boxes using a special stick. I think the weight from them did something to the joint or tendions. I did have the popping checked was just told it was like pitchers arm. but at night my arm gets numb or it really hurts in real cold weather.


    ALS?

    That sounds very serious. For how long has your hand felt weak? You should def. go see a doctor that doesn't sound normal at all.
    Life is like photography, you develop from the negatives.

    Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.

    Sometimes we expect more from others because we would be willing to do that much for them...

    pain in the left arm could be a heart attack

    meh I can still move my arm. It just feels like it's going to sleep. As for the heart attack I doubt it I thought that was a sudden and sharp pain. May be just the cold weather. I'll put some heat rub on it. I am right handed so no big deal if I can't use my left lol

    Is your left hand sweating more than normal, is it easy to make a fist?
    In everyday there is time to cry, smile, hope, believe, live, work, think, forget, love, dance, play, help, ask, 我不懂!and a million more.
