Shoulder pain going down to the elbow for 5 days. Doctor could not see cause & prescribed pane dine & ordered an X-ray yesterday but today the pain is much worse. The condition is my mothers. She is 81 & recently had chemo & radiotherapy for oesophageal cancer which seems to have been successfully cured.

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
I understand your concern.
These are common symptoms of cervical spondylosis.
She needs an MRI of the cervical spine and a physiotherapy is the mainstay of treatment.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Do not worry we are there to help you out.
Have a nice day.
