Patient :I have a sharp jabbing pain sitting on the top and aroundy right shoulder.
I woke up one morning with and sore neck and thought nothing of it, went to have some medication puty right arm up and I was in the most pain I jVe ever been in right from my neck down to my hand.
It plays up ever now and then but this time it is worse. I have it for 3 days now and no relief from medication stings when I take heavy foots steps and lying on it or carrying heavy thing.
Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
You seem to have developed Acute nerve Compression of Cervical Disc.
I am saying this based on your history of radiation of pain to the arm.
The pain of cervical disc compression radiates to arm with associated tingling and numbness.
I would advise you to get a MRI Cervical spine to rule out any disc prolapse.
For pain i would advise following:
1. A Pain killer like Ibuprofen/Etoricoxib can be taken for pain relief.
2. To do hot fomentation of the affected area.
3. To apply Diclofenac / Volini ointment locally.
4. To get physiotherapy done particularly Ultrasonic heat massage.
5. A combination of Rabeprazole and Domperidone for acid reflux.
Your pain would start getting better in 5 days if this is a simple muscular pain.
Share my opinion with your doctor before you act upon it.
I hope it helps.
