Pins and needles after choke
At practice today, we we're working a techniques and I got caught In darce choke. He had an incredibly tight squeeze but I eventually escaped. Afterwards, i felt like my arm had pins and needles all the way through my chest snd shoulder. Now, a couple hours later, my arm still feels the same. No pain but yeah. Should I be freakin out?
I felt the same way once after escaping a really tight triangle. No pain, just pins and needles in my shoulder/arm. It went away the next day though and I've had no problems with it since. Hope it ends as well for you too!
Sounds like you may have pinched a nerve. The same exact thing happened to me like half a year ago.. from the same choke. I was stuck in a really tight darce for what seemed like forever and when i finally escaped my arm was numb and felt like it was alseep.. It continuted to feel that way for weeks and i went to the doctor and he tole me i pinched a nerve. I went to some physically therapy just to make sure that there was no atrophy which is really the only thing you have to look out for if you did pinch a nerve. I had to take a break from things for a month or two.. there's not much to do. But i would definitely go to the doctor if it doesnt go away in a day or a few
Keep us posted bro, and get an avatar too...
totally sounds like a pinched nerve.
I got this type of injury at work. I went to the doctor and the doctor said there was no problem doing anything and that it would go away after a couple of weeks. It turned out fine so if you have a pinched nerve you should be able to train as long as it doesn't seem to aggrivate it. I'm no medical expert though, just relating my own experience. The best bet is to see a doctor.
If you are still getting some tingling then something is causing preasure on a nerve (inflimation or bulging disc) and you should wait till you have no more symtoms before risking further injury. If it's getting better, you could let it keep getting better and see if it will resolve itself. If it has stopped getting better, you may want to get it checked out. Some PT may be in order to get it back to good.
Take it from someone who never let his neck injuries heal all the way before getting back on the mat, it can become a cronic problem that bothers you for a long time if you don't take good care of it.
Good luck man!
I had a pinched nerve and ignored it for almost a year until I couldn't use my right hand and most of my arm, I finally went in and the doc told me surgery was needed and I'd be lucky if I got 100% use of my hand back. If you still have an issue in a month I'd defiantly go in and see what's up.
good luck hope it clears up
