Suggest treatment for persistent muscle pain in the left arm
This may be a neck muscle injury, the lump is persistent.
Thanks for your query.
To recapitulate: Male/27 - lots of lifting 3 weeks ago - pain in the left arm muscle and neck too on one day when you lifted a box with metal - lump on the left side of the neck - lump is still there after 3 weeks - sore throat and neck pain since 2 days - bad sleep - wants to know whether this may be a neck muscle injury.
My thoughts after reading your history carefully.
The persistence of the lump in the neck is indicative of an injured muscle, either spraining or a hematoma formation, this being in the process of healing.
The recent sore throat and neck pain can add on the existing problem. Hence it is better to get this treated properly.
Please tell me what was the opinion of the Doctor you visited and the reports of the CT scan and ultrasonography and the treatment you have taken.
I hope this answer helps you, please feel free to give me the feedback and ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
Sore throat is a different thing
Thanks for your appreciation.
Sore throat is a different thing. It may certainly enhance the pre-existing things.
The dizziness is being caused by the neck muscle spasm.
The pain in the shoulder muscles and arm muscles can be due to associated spasm or due to pinched nerves in the neck.
3 weeks is a bit long time to have continued symptoms, get a proper treatment till cured.
Let me know if there are any further queries.
