Burning Pins Needles in Arms and Hands

Posted by sir_buzzalot @sir_buzzalot, Nov 24, 2018

I just found this discussion group and thought I would reach out and possibly learn more about learning to live with my condition. I've had some form of hand pain for more than 15 years. After many MRI scans and lots of meds I had spinal surgery (c5-c6) 5 years ago for narrowing and possible pinched nerve. Unfortunately ended up with c5 palsy which is now better but still weak. Now I get severe pins and needles maybe 4 to 5 times a day with no trigger. Lasts 1 to 5 minutes and then vanishes. I haven't seen much about arm an hand neuropathy. The neurosurgeon has no clue, neurologist has tried more meds, finally the hand surgeon believes there's nothing with my arms and hands but stems from my neck. Got my cannabis license but don't like being in an altered state. Sorry for the long post. I'm open to ideas.

Again, my sincerest thanks to you for help and support.

@arnrob, This is from a compound pharmacy called Ambrosia in Palm Desert. The compound consists of Lidocaine 10%, Prilocaine 2.5%, Ketoprofen 5%, Ketamine 5%, Amitryptiline 10% added to a base.
It takes the tingles away just long enough for you to go to sleep. You can also use it during the day as needed. I use a Papa and Barkly Relief Balm in a 3:1 from the Medical Cannabis Dispensary during the day. Chris

Great info. My thanks.
Now I am going to ruin it all. The only compounding pharmacy I could find is in Hew Hampshire. I live in Mass. They won't honor my request for the compound you described. Is it at all possible that you might be able to get an extra container for me and ship it up. Obviously, I will pay all costs. I realize that this request is way over the line and I do apologize. Desperation is a terrible motivator. Please do not hesitate to decline if this is too much for me to ask.

Unfortunately, this compound pharmacy is in California. I now live in Minnesota. The prescription does require my neurologists' approval. I am sure that your neurologist could prescribe this. The components are all known entities. And you do need to know that this is the third formulation I have had and has more oomph than my last one. Conditions change and so does the formula. I was able to find several compounding pharmacies in Mass.,– Arlington, Acton, Worchester, West Springfield, Waltham and about 10 more. Are any of these near you? I just googled, compounding pharmacies, Massachusetts. I have always had mine shipped even if it was just to save me from driving off the mountain and to the desert. Let me know if you have success.

Try some CBD oil. This topical gives me relief at 250 concentration. Of course you need to reapply several times a day.
