I am 42 yrs old and about 2 months ago I startes getting pain in my neck on the left side. I just thought I slept wrong that night. Over the last 2 months the pain which I can describe as numbness and like someone is shoving needles in my arm, has traveled all the way down my arm to my hand, mainly my thumb and middle finger but sometimes I noticed lately my palm part of the hand. The worse part is the “needle poking” / pain in my upper arm. It has got worse over the last 2 months. I cant turn my head, bend my head down, etc without the pain being severe in my upper mid arm only located on the outer part of my bicep which travels downwards which leads instantly to my hand going numb. I am not one for but it is getting a little annoying and unsure if I need to see a Dr. I was tested about a yr ago for Carpel Tunnel in both hands which the Dr stated all was fine.
Five days ago, I started feeling a slight tongue discomfort; It felt a little swollen/numb and I could not move it as easily as I am used to. I had the same feeling the next morning but the condition seemed to improve as the day progressed. The next day, I woke up with a minor frenulum pain. I took a flashlight and started examining my under-tongue. I discovered that my frenulum and my duct of salivary gland were really swollen and I had a white spot on my frenulum. Upon further inspection, I realized that I had some irregular red bumps spread under my tongue, on my mouth floor on both sides under my tongue. I also found two of these bumps under my tongue near the frenulum. The next day, the white spot on my frenulum and the pain disappeared. However, I the red bumps are still there and I have a really minor gum pain . They are not painful and do not cause any discomfort. The region around the bumps and the bumps look a little swollen and are redder than the other skin of my mouth floor. I do not know if I had these bumps before since I never bothered inspecting in details the region under my tongue.
