Sharp pain on arm. No relief after using muscle pain relief cream. What to do?

Hi Doctor yesterday i started to get shooting pains in my left forearm and it travells down in to my hand , I think it might be RSI related but i havent been doing anything differently recently and I have not had this pain before from what i can remember. I have put some muscle pain relief cream on there but to no avail. Is there anything i can do to ease the pain and stop this coming back?

hi taran
Radiating pain in upper extremity most likely could be due to cervical degenerative disc disease with radiculopathy
For that you need to consult orthopedic surgeon and get x ray or MRI done if required.
