What are the treatments for back pain, pain in right arm and numbness in arm?
My name is Colleen. For the past six weeks i have had back pain - mainly sciatica down rt side and referred pain down my rt arm . I wake up with a feeling of numbness/ heavy / aching sensation in my arm - its driving me nuts & wont go away . What do you suggest
Hello. Thanks for writing to us. The pain in the arm and numbness is likely to be due to a mild nerve root compression in the area of cervical spine. An mri scan of the neck will help in proper diagnosis. I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. Regards, Dr. Praveen Tayal , email@example.com
