Hi, Karen mouse--we are so sorry to read about your neck pain and headaches!

With the numbness in your left hand, it sounds like you may be suffering from some nerve problems in your neck (a compressed nerve in your neck can be felt all the way in your hands). We also wonder if you may be suffering from cervicogenic headaches. You can read more about this type of headache caused by referred neck pain in this article ( Neck Pain and Headaches ).

We hope that your upcoming doctor's appointment yields some answers and a treatment plan! Best of luck to you, and keep us posted on what you learn from the doctor.
