Hey dear XXXXXXX
Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..
How was your day?
Hope this message finds you in good health.
I have gone through your query in detail and understand your concern.
I generally see many cases like this at my clinic.I give them rest,analgesics,anti-inflammatory tablets and ice pack till the symptoms reduce to some extent.
Then i get an xray and if necessary an mri done to find out the exact reason.
In your case,there are 3 possibilities-
POSSIBILITY 1. SOFT TISSUE INFLAMMATION- there may be no bony involvement,only the soft tissues around the region might be inflammed that may be causing the pain. a possibility of raised uric acid in the blood can also cause this
POSSIBILITY 2. NEUROPATHY- there may be a partial or complete inflammation of the nerves in that region that may be the root cause of such kind of pain.
POSSIBILITY 3. DISC PROLAPSE-there may be a compressed a nerve in the neck-spine somewhere that might be causing radiating pain in those regions.Possibility of a disc prolapse should be kept in mind.
I suggest you get an Xray as well as an MRI done to find out the exact cause.
also, get the uric acid in the blood checked
Physiotherapy,analgesics,anti-inflammatory drugs should help till then.
Do get back to me after ur reports are ready.
You should eventually get back to normal in coming few days.Nothing to worry about.
I hope your question has been answered.
Feel free to consult me anytime for follow-up queries.
Take care,God bless.
Wish you a healthy life : )
