Brief Answer:
Not recommended for use like this.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
Lidocaine is not for injection in the arm or the muscle. It can be given at the local site- near the herniated disc for temporary relief. Do not self medicate yourself like this. This could be XXXXXXX
It is best to consult an orthopedician and get some muscle relaxants and methylcobalamin supplements prescribed for relief.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
