Cervical pain

I use to have pain earlier on my right or left arm and had to take painkillers for relaxation. took ECG - everything came clean. Suddenly last week I had pain all through my neck to shoulder to arm to my fingers. It became unbearable at one point and had to take painkillers and some oil massage to relax. Checked with a doctor they said it can be Cervical Pain & gave me mobizox for emergency situations and asked to do some neck exercises. The pain comes and goes from one side to other and sometime to my legs too.

Hi.... The best thing to do is give your body time to heal on its own. To get through the day without letting the pain interfere with your normal activities, you have a few options. Gently stretch your neck....Take over-the-counter pain medication....Alternate between heat and ice treatments on your neck: 20 minutes of heat followed by 20 minutes of ice should help the pain and the healing process...... I hope this helps....
