Pain on left side

I am having pain originating from my neck to the arms and fingers are feeling numb. This is for the last 6 days and painkillers have no effect. This is only on the left side of the body. Sometimes the pain is extreme. Please advise the cause and cure.

The pain maybe because of a nerve getting pressed due to a disc prolapse or because of nerve inflammation . u need a MRI scan of neck and brachial plexus. A ncv and emg studies can be done also. Treatment according to results.
