  • Get it checked maybe you have a pinched nerve there. if it were me I would get someone to pull on it and give it a massage maybe it just needs the blood to get it to circulate. My guess idk.

  • I'll let you know after I get the nerve test done on Tuesday for this exact same problem. I think it could be associated with my fibro but the dr said it could even be a pinched nerve in my neck
