This has been continuing last 8-9 years. When i wake-up pain is started and its continuing for next day. In some days i can't move my hand smoothly even i can't wear my shirt smoothly, if i lift my hand up side i can't do down. Maximum its occurs after deep sleep at night. I am using very light pillow. In MRI report says Mild annular disc bulge noted at the level of C4-C5 & C5-C6 causing compression on anterior CSF column without significant neurological compromise. When the pain is started i can't do exercise. Kindly advice me

Brief Answer: try these medicines Detailed Answer: Hello, CHRONIC pain over shoulder & hand is not a cause for major concern . Continue with physiotherapy sessions / treatment as advised . Please confirm from your orthopedician if you have any frozen shoulder etc. You can try taking some combinations like CHLORDIAZEPOXIDE+ AMITRYPTYLLINE etc. Mild disc bulges don't require any intervention . THANX DR XXXXXXX K XXXXXXX
