Hi, I had gone through your question and understand your concerns

Hi, If I were your treating Doctor for this case , I would ask you to do MRI cervical spine to asses any bony abnormality or disc herniation which may cause radicular pain in your left arm . Also I advise you to receive the following medications:

-Muscle relaxant as Tizanidine
-Pregabalin 150 mg once before sleep to improve the electric shock sensation.
