Default OT Strange ailment

I have had a stiff neck for months. About four weeks ago I went to my
usual sports medicine chiropractor for treatment. He did nothing to my
neck instead pressing on pressure points on my upper left back. Since
then, I have had a strange "tingling"/numbness sensation that comes and
goes with various arm positions. I went back twice and each time the
Dr. repeated the original treatment. The "tingling" got worse.
Yesterday I went to a chiropractor that I used to use. He did some
gentle adjustments to my neck which hasn't helped at all. I guess I
will have to try to get in to see my regular doctor. These symptoms go
from just below my left ear down about halfway to my waist and usually
last about 30 seconds. The stiff neck seems better though. Any ideas?

Mike,
it almost sounds like Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. My hubby and I were
both diagnosed with it after a car accident (car that hit us was doing
about 50 mph when he slammed into us, and pushed us about 50 feet down
a ditch.) Here is some more info on it:

Hope this info helps!

Suggestion: See either an orthopedic doctor or a neurologist.
