Hi, About 3 months ago I hurt my lower back. I babied it and only have stiffness occasionally of a morning. About a week ago the back of my left shoulder, neck area started to bother me. Just discomfort. Now it has moved into my left upper arm and it s more pain than discomfort. Like as I am typing this it hurts. If I put my arm over my head it doesn t bother me. It s when it is down by my side or using my hands in a low position.

I was having lunch on Friday when suddenly, out of the blue, right side of my neck started hurting. I could not turn my head to the right and barely to the left. the pain was only on the right from my shoulder to below my ear. About 6 hours later, I could turn my head slightly and by Sunday I was able to turn it completely. Now there is no more pain and everything turns, but I m wondering what happened? It was so sudden and I ve never had anything like that before.

Recent questions on  Cervical vertebrae

Here and there I have gotten patches of goosebumps, but only on the left side of my body. Today it is only on my left forearm . They arise for apx 15-30 secs, then go away. 15-45 mins later I will have a recurrence. I have found some VERY mixed explanations for the cause. As a nursing student, none of them seemed quite accurate. I have had a full blood panel recently and hormone panel recently, all results well within the range of normal. Is there a logical explanation for this? My thought was a pinched nerve in the cervical vertebrae , as I have had mild, ongoing neck issues. So far, this theory has not been given as an explanation.

I suffer from constant pain and continuous at the top of the spine down the cervical vertebrae 6 years ago with the knowledge that I underwent surgery on cartilage cotton, specifically in the fourth paragraph, fifth and fifth sacral initial lower spine and been taking most medications and anti-inflammatory and vitamin B complex without interest and finally you make rays ringing and the outcome was as follows: Early Dorsal spondylosis is seen with small anterior osteophytes and early end plates degenerative changes Please kindly explanation what the cause of this pain and how to treat note that all laboratory tests satisfactory

Sir, I have neck pain and tingling/pain/numbness in left are since two months. I consulted a Orthopaedic doctor. After treating with NSAID and complete rest for a week, the symptoms did not subside. I got MRI of C-Spine done and the report says: (I am 37 years old)
1. Straightening of cervical spine noted - suggestive of paraspinal muscular spasm
2. Osteophytes are noted from the vertebral body margins - suggestive of early degenerative changes
3. C3-C4 level left side postero-lateral ostephyte is indenting the corresponding exiting root nerve
4. Small postero-lateral ostephytes at C4-C5, C5-C6 level without significant nerve root compression
5. C3-C4, C4-C5, C5-C6 show mild diffuse bulges without cord compression

Doctor said, if a neuro surgeon is consulted, they may immediately suggest surgery. He advised me to do neck exercises for a month and review.

Kindly let me know what is this condition called medically and what is the best possible treatment.
