A pinched nerve or compression of the nerves within the neck does not always completely resolve in two months. Sometimes the symptoms can be ongoing and this may be an indicaiton for further investigation, treatment. Further treatments for cervical nerve root compression include some medications such as gabapentin or pregabalin, nerve root injections under CT guidance and surgucal decompression of the affected nerves. You should ask yoru Dr about such therapies.
