Hello,

This condition is referred to as cervical radiculopathy. The C6-7 nerve root leaves the spinal cord in the lower cervical spine and travels from the neck down the arm. When this nerve gets pinched or compressed, neck and arm pain can develop with pain traveling down to the elbow and below. You should do a Ct scan and consult with specialist because your condition needs follow up. Right posture, moderate activity and physiotherapy may help your symptoms.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to a pinched nerve. I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the pain. I also suggest to avoid overuse of the arm and rest. I recommend to avoid activities that can trigger the symptoms.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
