Compared to others here, my upper arm aches seem mild. I have had 2 Total Knee Replacements (one excellent, the other pretty good with lingering numbness – neither were that painful overall). But now i have LEFT Shoulder impingement for which I did P.T. for months, BUT and since it hurts a little to do it, I do very little now. Weird – I can play a racquet sport LEFT handed (Pickleball) and feel GREAT. But then the pain/immobility returns. But here is the puzzle: for a year my upper arms – around biceps – ache at night and feel a tiny bit numb during the day,. This is not PAIN, but it is aches and increasing. I do have the shoulder impingement in LEFT arm and also have had RIGHT neck stenosis for years – but not much of a problem – I get rid of it by doing a few minutes of isometric exercise – an easy fix. I cannot figure out what the shoulder aches are all about. I will return to the orthopedist re shoulder impingement to determine next step. I DO NOT WANT SURGERY – since I had TKR and Gallbladder surgery this year. Enough is enough.
I also have circulatory issues in legs – but no one has a fix except "wear support stockings" and I have no problem walking or playing Pickleball. However, climbing UPstairs has become VERY tiring (never happened before) and going DOWNstairs I have to hold on and concentrate on rhythm – but no pain.
Any ideas anyone?
