Doctor: HelloWelcome to Ask The Doctor.You seem to have developed Acute nerve Compression of Cervical Disc.I am saying t his 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.Stay Healthy
