You are not alone. Tingling, numbness and pain is often due to abnormal impulse generating sites in the nerve which happens as a result to long term inflammatory changes to the nerve itself. Imagine a rubber band left out in the cold for a some time, it will lose its elasticity and thus affecting its ability to be flexible with changing body positions.
Parasthesia is an abnormal sensory impairment. It is often characterized by pain, burning, tingling, numbness, prickling, pins, needles, electric shock like feeling, etc with or without a mechanism of injury.
Advanced neuro-mobilization techniques, spinal mobilization techniques and neuro-stim performed by a specialty trained physical therapist may be able to help restore the normal mobility of a nerve, lessen or get rid of the abnormal sensations.
