i am 44 years old and i have short cervical rib in the left side of my shoulder. I have pain some times in my neck area and through my hand specially my finger tips. Doctor please help me if is there any reliefing treatment. is there any other related body pains?
As a first line management, you can take analgesics like Paracetamol or Aceclofenac for pain relief. If symptoms persist better to consult a neurosurgeon and get evaluated. In severe cases, you might require steroid injection to the spine.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
