Hello. Welcome to Healthcare magic!
A large disc protrusion
can cause significant distress, especially a 'shooting' type of pain in the upper limb, depending on the side of the protrusion. Do you have pain in your right or left upper limb? If yes, kindly consult an orthopaedician who would prescribe medication and redirect you to a physiotherapist; who would teach you some exercises for relaxation of the affected area.
