My sister is having pain in neck and is not able to move her left arm since last week. It started spontaneously abd there is no improvement after taking pain killer. She is used to play with her 4 year daughter and her daughter is quite heavy. She also has mild gas issues. What can be the reason and which tests should we get done?

This could be because of strain of neck and shoulder muscles. Usually these muscular strain recovery with rest and pain killer Mediclinics within 5 days But it has been a week and she is still in pain that means there are some injuries has happened. My advice is that you take your sister to good doctor nearby. She might be having rotator cuff muscle injury of shoulder, to diagnose She may require MRI and accordingly the treatment.
