Hello,
Thanks for the query.
The pain from neck to the hand suggests that there may be a pressure over the nerve in the neck region. One possible cause of nerve compression is by a disc prolapse. This can occur due to sudden twisting injury to the neck or some such jerk. For making a diagnosis an MRI scan of the neck region would be required. If it shows compression of the type that I mentioned, then treatment options are traction, physiotherapy, surgery.
Tramadol can cause nausea and vomiting in a few patients. Additionally Zerodol may cause gastritis and in that case it needs to be taken with drugs for acidity like rabeprazole, pantoprazole etc.
She can also apply ointments or sprays (like volini) for pain relief to the neck area.
The other drugs which she took (neugaba, sompraz) were also correct and probably she will need to take it little more longer.
I will not be able to really prescribe everything on this online portal and I would advise to visit a neurosurgeon or a neurologist for the testing and treatment.
Hope that answers your query. If you have more queries, I will be happy to answer.
Good luck.

The impression of MRI Cervical Spine Report is Decreased hydration and minimally diffuse bulge of C5-6 and C6-7 intervertebral discs with no endplate spondylosis or facet arthrosis. Mild indentation of central canal. Normal lateral recesses and intervertebral neural foramina with no neural impingement.

Please let me understand the root cause of this problem.

Thanks XXXXXXX

Hello,
Thanks for the report.
The MRI changes are suggestive of mild cervical spondylitis. The pain could be due to this and additionally there may be a ligament/ muscle sprain in the neck which is causing the pain.
The treatment options are cervical collar and pain killers (whichever she is able to tolerate better). She should take the treatment for 2-3 weeks and within that period the pain is likely to subside and injury will heal.
She will not need surgery with this MRI report.
Hope that answers your query. If there are more questions, i will be happy to answer.
Good luck.
