Suggest Treatment For Severe Pain In My Upper Back Near The Right Shoulder
Can be a muscle spasm.
The pain in the upper back extending to the arm can be related to a muscle spasm. Doing a sudden stretching and exercise can cause such a spasm to develop. You need to apply a local analgesic gel like Volini gel on the area after a hot compress. Do consult your doctor and get an oral muscle relaxant and a mild pain killer prescribed for relief. Avoid all painful activities till then.
I hope this answers your query. In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out. Wishing you good health.
