Hi all, so for about 5 weeks now I've been suffering pain in my neck, chest, collarbone, shoulder and down my left arm into my wrist and fingers accompanied with tingling. My neck also hurts when I stretch it, particularly when I lean it forwards.
I went the doctors and she implied disc herniation and said it should heal by itself but now I have found on my cervical spine just below my hair line a very hard bump which is tender When I press on it but I can only feel it when I lean my head forward. My neck is also tender to touch on the right side but no bump and the pain can radiate up the back of my head and cause tension in my forehead.
Should I be concerned or is this a symptom of disk herniation?
I'm also 25 and healthy, I'm a tattooist/artist so my posture isn't amazing but I work out 4-5 times a week.
